Misdemeanor Warrant- Depending on the charge against you, determines what must happen before the Warrant is lifted. If it is for a misdemeanor, you generally can walk into Court at that Court's specific time and be arraigned. At that time, the charges will be read against you and a bond set. If you are accompanied by an attorney, he or she will do all the talking and address bond issues. The Judge or Magistrate may ask the Defendant a couple of questions, but most will be submitted to the attorney first. Often, unless the Defendant has a history of not showing up for Court, has done something particularly serious, or is already on probation, the Court will generally impose a no-cash bond and give you a date to show up for a future hearing.

Felony Warrant- If you are charged with a felony, you generally cannot just walk into the Circuit Court. Often you must turn yourself into the local sheriff who will then transport you to the Court for arraignment. Sometimes, the Court will allow the defense attorney, to drive the Defendant to the Court, but that depends on the relationship the attorney has with the Court.
