Do You Have An Open Warrant in Fort Worth?

Not all warrants are created equal, and the truth is that some lesser misdemeanors are actually easy to take care of—if you know how. You don’t have to continue life with that worry constantly in the back of your mind; you can get the help you need to move past this.

If you hire a Fort Worth warrant lawyer from our office, we can help you get your warrant taken care of once and for all. You don’t want to be caught off guard, arrested at your home or workplace, and taken to jail.

Types of Warrants in Fort Worth, Texas

There are a few different types of warrants the courts can issue in Fort Worth. The most common warrants are for Class C misdemeanors. If you failed to appear for an initial court hearing, an alias warrant will be issued for your arrest.

If you made a court appearance on your case or took some other action, such as agreeing to defensive driving classes or making payment arrangements, but then you didn’t follow through with those actions, a capias warrant will be issued for your arrest.

Sometimes these warrants are easy to take care of—you just need to pay the related fines.

Another warrant type is a criminal warrant, in which case you should contact an attorney right away to help protect you from conviction on criminal charges. Depending on the seriousness of the offense, you may need to figure out a bail solution, and your attorney can also arrange for jail release after you’ve appeared before a judge.

Regardless of your warrant type, a warrant lawyer can help you get it taken care of. We can also help get fines reduced and, in some cases, get your charges dismissed. In all instances, we can appear in court to help you reach the most positive outcome available, and we can advise you on all related legal matters.

Texas Warrant Roundup in Fort Worth

A few times a year, but especially in the spring, Texas police participate in the statewide Great Texas Warrant Round Up. The goal is to catch as many people with outstanding warrants as possible, and officers are highly motivated. They will go to your house and even your place of work to arrest you and take you to jail.

Handcuffs aren’t a good look on anyone, and the situation is sure to be embarrassing for obvious reasons, but that’s the least of your worries. You could spend time in jail or lose your job over an arrest. It’s best to clear your warrant before the police come looking for you.

A warrant attorney in Fort Worth can help make your warrant a thing of the past. We will help you avoid the unnecessary disruption to your life that an arrest like this could cause.

How to Clear a Tarrant County Warrant

There are a few ways your attorney can help you clear a Tarrant County warrant. The first thing you need to do is figure out the location of your warrant. For example, you can go to the Tarrant County warrant lookup or the Fort Worth lookup page to discover whether you have an active warrant. You can also call the court clerk.

Once you determine that you do indeed have a warrant, you should call your Fort Worth arrest warrant attorney. Your attorney will then contact the county where you were arrested and, if possible, arrange a date for a walkthrough (a voluntary surrender), as well as set a prearranged bail.

Finally, depending on the circumstances of your case, your attorney can either appear in court on your behalf and set up payment arrangements or set a new court date for you. Your attorney can work to protect you against conviction.

Help Arranging Bail and Walkthrough

One of the most helpful things your Fort Worth arrest warrant lawyer can do for you is arrange bail and a walkthrough before you turn yourself in. When your bail is prearranged, this allows you to go through the process of “booking,” but you avoid the actual jail stay.

After you’ve been fingerprinted and booked, you are released on bail. Your attorney can set your self-surrender or walkthrough at a time that is convenient for you, often allowing you to take the necessary time off work or make childcare or other necessary arrangements to minimize the impact to your life.

Jeff C. Kennedy was the light of hope at the end of very dark storm. He was not only able to defend my case swiftly, but had the alleged charges dismissed completely. His calm and empathetic demeanor offered emotional succor to myself and those I care about most. My children and I are eternally grateful for his excellent service and I hereby recommend Jeff C. Kennedy without reservation.


Jeff Kennedy truly cares. He and his staff kept me informed all the way throughout my case and provided me with all my options and the potential outcomes for my case. When the day finally arrived to resolve my case, Jeff was able to negotiate a reduction to a lesser charge. He was well prepared and coordinated everything perfectly. Jeff is not only a good lawyer, but a good man.


I hired Mr. Jeff Kennedy to handle a DWI charge. From day one, I knew I had picked the right attorney. Jeff always took the time to answer any of my questions, treated me very professionally, and truly cared about my case. I have never been in any kind of trouble before and I was very nervous about the thought of going to trial. Jeff thoroughly explained the entire process to me and made me feel at ease. Jeff took my case to trial and the jury found me NOT GUILTY!


Jeff Kennedy is a professional, intelligent, easy-to-talk-to lawyer with an excellent understanding of how the system works. Jeff was able to get my twice the legal limit BAC thrown out and he kept me from having an interlock device put on my car. This has been my only big mistake in life so far (hopefully the last) and I am glad he was there to walk me through it. You will not regret hiring him.
