- I missed my court date? What do I do?
You may contact the clerk of court’s office of the county in which you were charged to ask about the local procedure for having your case rescheduled. If you are represented by counsel, you also may contact your attorney.
Note that following a failure to appear, criminal process may be issued against you and substantial additional fees may be assessed. If you are charged with a motor vehicle offense, your failure to appear may result in the revocation of your drivers license and the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles (NCDMV) may assess additional fees against you. If a cash bond was required and posted, the bond will be forfeited, and the NCDMV will treat your failure to appear as a conviction that may result in points against your driving and insurance records or license revocation.
If you have any questions regarding your legal rights and obligations, consult a licensed attorney.
