Unpaid traffic fines and pending biometric appointment

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello good people, 

 

So I have biometric appointment coming up in a matter of days however I just found out (15 hours ago) that I have unpaid traffic fine from 11 years ago and there’s a bench warrant for my arrest. This discovery has me freaking out to high heavens.

 

I made what was supposed to be a quick, simple call to the county magistrate court to make sure everything was in good standing and to see if I could get more certified copies of court dispositions and or proof that I paid all my fines. Long story short we found out that I never paid my fine and therefore there’s a warrant for my arrest, I asked her if I could pay the fine over the phone she said no I have to send a money order with citation number on the money order and they will withdraw the warrant once the payment is received. Once she gave me the citation number I went to the court website and looked it up hoping to be able to pay it online, it gets tricky I found the case and it say it’s open and the fine is $200 however the clerk told me I owe $450 so called back the clerk and told her I don’t have $450 at the moment and it will be a week or two, I can only come up with $200 and some change and I was willing to pay it right now and finish the rest on the coming weeks she refused and told me to send in a full amount or go in person unfortunately, I don’t live anywhere near that county/state anymore.

 

Now I don’t know whether to reschedule the biometric appointment till I take care of this issue or print out the invoice from the court house and send the $200 money order and carry the copy with me to the biometric appointment. What really surprised me is that weeks after the missed due date I went to the same court to pay another traffic fine and nothing was mentioned or brought up and ever since I’ve been stopped twice by state patrol admittedly in a different state and though I was never cited they still ran my license and last trooper told me he wasn’t going to give me a ticket because my record was clean and he didn’t want to sully it.

 

Any suggestions, advice are welcome.

 

thank you all and good luck

Reschedule the biometric appointment (I am assuming this is for a Citizenship application?). USCIS will access all your criminal records and this will definitely com up.

 

..oh and try to follow the law if you can when driving
