Q: Will I get booked in if I go to court?
I recently found out I have an active warrant for my arrest for domestic violence charge
A: Do you have a court date? If you do, and appear without being booked, you will receive a booking slip where you will need to go to the police station for booking.

A: more info needed.
i am not sure if there is a different procedure in every jurisdiction.
if it is a misdemeanor a lawyer can normally appear 977 on behalf of the client...........but not on a misdemeanor.
even though that is the law, in the Riverside Court they want the defendant to appear on the first appearance.
as to custody, it is hard to say without knowing the facts of the DV.........however as a rule if you appear and have a clean record that you have a good chance of an OR release. Normally a DV has a $50k bail required.
A: If you voluntarily appear in court to get the Warrant recalled you have a better chance of leaving out of the same door as you enter!! If you are picked up on the warrant, it will be harder for you to get an OR release.
You should contact an attorney near the Courthouse that you have to appear in; most of us offer free initial consultations. The faster you take care of the warrant the less likelihood of being kept in custody while the case is being resolved...
