Resolving a Warrant

Options for Resolving a Warrant

Contact Your Attorney

If you previously had an attorney, please contact them first to see if they can still represent you. If you don't remember the name of your attorney, you may be able to find it using our online case file portal. Search under your name or case number.

If you had a public defender, please call the assigned agency or if you don't know it, contact their administrative offices.

Request to Recall ("Quash") a Warrant

If you have a warrant in your case, you can schedule a hearing to ask a judge to recall ("quash") the warrant. Hearings are offered virtually by video or by phone. We encourage you to contact an attorney so they can help you schedule the hearing.

If you are not represented by an attorney, you may complete this Motion to Quash Warrant form.

When you submit this form, the court will receive it electronically and respond to you either by email or by mail. Please make sure the court has your current mailing address. You can update your mailing address by calling (206) 684-5600.


Please contact the court at (206) 684-5600. Dial 0 to speak to a representative. Phone lines are staffed Monday - Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
