St Louis Traffic Ticket Lawyer $35: What Happens If I Do Not Pay My Traffic Fines?


If the court has assessed a fine in regards to your St Louis traffic ticket, then you will typically have thirty (30) to sixty (60) days to pay it off. If, however, you do not get the fines paid by this deadline (or if you have not set up any sort of payment plan with the clerk), then chances are the judge will issue a warrant for your arrest. But even if it gets to that point, a good attorney can help you out! A more thorough description is given below:

When you hire an experienced St Louis speeding ticket attorney to help you get your ticket reduced to a non-moving violation (so that you do not receive any points to your permanent driving record), the court will usually assess a fine of between $100 – $200. As mentioned above, the court will normally allow you a sufficient period of time in which to pay this fine (and even work out a payment plan if you need additional time).

But if the fine is not paid (and/or no repayment plan is set up), then the case will go to warrant status. This means that the police will have the ability to arrest you on the spot (especially if you get pulled over again, because the officer will undoubtedly run your driver’s license).


If your ticket goes to warrant, then we do have the ability to get the warrant lifted. We do this by getting in front of the judge who issued it in the first place. Once the warrant is recalled, then we can address the outstanding fine (and see about getting you more time in which to pay them).
