A: Ignoring the warrant can result in arrest and additional complications, so it's crucial to address the issue promptly. Depending on the circumstances, it might be possible to resolve the matter without being taken into custody, especially if you can show that missing the court date was unintentional. For personalized legal advice tailored to your unique circumstances, it's advisable to consult with an attorney.

A: I sugges you contact a lawyer (either criminal defense or debtor rights) in your area--you should discuss the specifics of yoour situation and determine the best way to approach the "warrant" and how to resolve this matter. Good luck.
A: If you've discovered there's an active warrant for your arrest due to a misunderstanding regarding court dates, you should promptly contact an attorney to discuss your options and potential next steps. Your lawyer can help clarify the situation with the court and may be able to arrange for a new court date or resolve the warrant without you being detained. It's important to address the warrant directly rather than ignoring it, as failing to appear in court can lead to additional charges. Moreover, in dealing with the loan company's dissatisfaction with your payment, legal representation is crucial to navigate the complexities of civil litigation and to protect your rights throughout the process.
