They will issue w warrant for your arrest. Then depending on pretrial officer and judge you may or may not be bonded out until your next court date.

There was no warrant. I'm just supposed to appear in court for what was sent to me. It was for family court. They just sent a letter with a date to appear

not certain but i think ANY failure to appear is automatic bench warrant.....my only suggestion is to call the court house and find out if they have issued one! good luck!

Actually, when you show up in court the next time (and u better show) they will ask your reason for not showing, you tell them why and they will most likely recall the warrant! I've been in the courtroom, Ive seen it and heard it! Just don't make it a habit! Stay out of trouble til court!!

It's up to the judge on wether a warrant is issued or not, usually for family court it's not depending but I would def call the clerk in the morning, usually they can speak to the judge and what not.
