What are the Types of Warrants?
As we mentioned before, there are two main types of warrants in the State of Washington: bench warrants and arrest warrants.
- If you miss court, a bench warrant will be issued. Although law enforcement officials will not actively pursue bench warrants, getting pulled over or otherwise encountering the police can lead to an arrest.
- On the other hand, an arrest warrant means the police may actively look for you to serve that warrant.
From employment and housing background checks to driving privileges and government benefits, an active warrant could have a negative impact on your life. It is imperative to take care of the warrant as soon as possible, or else the judge may not set a reasonable bail amount.
