A: The best way to handle this would be to hire an attorney and let him or her walk you through the process. You need to address each warrant. They will not just go away on their own. Failing to appear in court, even if held in a hospital, is still something you will need to answer to. You may have a legitimate reason, but the more time that goes by, the less favorable a judge will view your reason.
