I Missed My Court Date! What Do I Do?


What to do if you miss your Court date.

I Missed My Court Date Suffolk County & Nassau County

So you woke up today and realized – Oh No - I missed my court date!  This can be a terrifying realization, but don’t worry!  In most cases, we can resolve this oversight by restoring your case to the court’s calendar and defending your case as if you never missed your court date.

Different courts handle a missed court differently and there are several potential consequences of a missed court date.  A skilled attorney can let you know what the policy is in your particular court and how we can help you avoid any negative consequences.

What Should I do if I Can't Make my Court Date?

If you cannot make it to court on your scheduled court date due to work, school or your distance from the court, in most circumstances, your attorney can appear in court for you and you will not have to take time out of your busy schedule.

Driving with a Suspended License

We are generally able to resolve a license suspension very quickly.  You should not drive until we do so.  Driving with a suspended license is a crime (a misdemeanor or felony depending upon the circumstances) called Aggravated Unlicensed Operation.  This crime is punishable by fines and, in some cases, a jail sentence.  Please feel free to review our Aggravated Unlicensed Operation article to learn more about the ramifications of this crime.
