New Jersey Bench Warrant

A bench warrant is issued when a person fails to complete a legal obligation. When a bench warrant is issued, police are required to arrest the individual named in the warrant and bring them before the court to answer for what they’ve failed to do. The following is a list of reasons why a bench warrant may be issued:

  • You failed to make a scheduled appearance in court i.e. sentencing.
  • You failed to pay a fine i.e. custody or support payments.
  • You violated a court order i.e. failing to perform community service when required.
