What Does a Default Warrant Do?

If you did not even know that you had a default warrant on your name, you might be under the impression that it is not a serious problem that requires your attention. The truth is default warrants are arrest warrants that can put you behind bars once acted upon. The most noticeable difference between a default warrant and an arrest is that police will rarely seek out a default warrant actively. Instead you could be arrested if you encounter the police for another reason, such as a routine traffic stop or speaking to an officer as an eyewitness.

You may have a default warrant on your name if you did not show up for:

  • Jury duty
  • Mandatory family law court date
  • Probation hearing in court
  • Any other official summons

An active default warrant can also impact your driving privilege. If you have an active default warrant against you the Registry of Motor Vehicles in Massachusetts may suspend your license. In order to lift the suspension, you will need to address the default warrant and complete the usual steps associated with license reinstatement.
