Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
The bench warrant was in England?
Are you in England now?
The only way to resolve a bench warrant is to surrender. If you are in Ireland then you cannot do that without coming to the UK.
If you want to resolve it then you need to come to the uk and surrendered to the relevant court. You can also surrender to the police but they will keep you in custody so there is no sense in that.
Can I clarify anything for you?
No, you should surrender.
Are you sure there is an arrest warrant anyway? Often they just convict in absence after a summons.
You must have been on bail then.
You can try phoning the magistrates but it will have been a fine and a ban.
Not if you are in southern ireland unless they get an european arrest warrant which they won't for this.
They tend to just wait until somebody comes to attention again.
Because they are looking for you in the UK.
Yes, it will just have to be as soon as you can.
You could make contact with the UK police and agree to surrender.
They will give you time to pay the fine. The issue is just that you didn't go to court.
Delighted to continue with this but please rate my answer.
Just contact the police and arrange to surrender.
If you didn't get the notification then you would have a defence.
