The most important thing you can do if you ever learn that you have a warrant for your arrest is to immediately seek legal representation after getting representation, the attorney will go with you to the courthouse to have that warrant vacated. Depending on how long the warrant has been outstanding, the judge may or may not decide to set bail. So having an attorney is going to give you the opportunity to have that attorney argue on your behalf and explain why it is that is warranted in the first place and hopefully resulting in the judge releasing you on your own recognizance.
