Court Orders to Appear should not be ignored.
If the defendant does not appear at a scheduled Domestic Relations event, a bench warrant may be issued for the defendant’s arrest. The Bucks County Sheriffs will apprehend the defendant. Every attempt is made to notify plaintiffs when defendants are apprehended.
If you have, or you know someone who has, an active Domestic Relations Bench Warrant, you must call the Domestic Relations Warrant Unit at 215-348-6843. View the Domestic Relations Top Ten Warrant List.
