If a warrant has been issued for my arrest, how do I take care of it? What is bail?

Warrants are typically issued by the Judge during a court session when a defendant has missed his/or her court date, with no prior request for an adjournment, or is in non-compliance of a court order. The amount of money the Judge issues a warrant for is called bail. Bail is money deposited with the court to ensure your appearance at a future court date. Bail can be posted at the municipal court office, or it can be posted at any police department in the State of New Jersey. Once bail is received, you will be scheduled for a court date. Upon disposition of your summons or complaint, bail money will be refunded.
