About Bench Warrants in Florida

A bench warrant differs from a traditional warrant in several significant ways. While traditional warrants are used by prosecutors and law enforcement to help resolve criminal cases, a bench warrant is used to help enforce less serious court matters, such as fine or traffic ticket payments. However, a bench warrant can still cause long-lasting and far-reaching consequences for you.

Also, a bench warrant or arrest will appear on future background checks, thereby affecting your ability:

  • To find proper housing
  • To gain meaningful employment
  • To receive certain loans from lenders

While law enforcement officers do not typically seek out individuals who have bench warrants issued, it can still lead to an embarrassing or harmful situation if you are stopped for a routine moving violation or traffic offense. When your information is run through the database and it shows that there is a bench warrant out for your arrest, you will most likely be taken to jail. Until you can see a judge or post bail, you will remain behind bars.
