    Default FL Bench Warrant

    I have a bench warrant issued in Florida. I live several states away.
    The warrant is for a non-criminal matter (failing to show up for a
    show cause hearing in an old domestic violence matter.) (The show
    cause hearing was for failing to provide proof of taking some tests
    required by the domestic violence order. The mail with the required
    paperwork didnt' get there in time for the show cause hearing.) 1. As
    a practical matter, do I have to worry about the bench warrant in
    Florida? 2. As long as I never contact the person in the (now old)
    domestic violence matter, do I need to worry about complying with the
    requirement to go for mental and drug tests? Can Florida enforce this
    out of state? 3. How can I get the bench warrant set aside without
    going to Florida?

    Probably what you need to do is consult and possibly retain a lawyer
    in Florida, preferably in the county where the warrant was issued.
