My daughter recently passed away from a serious medical condition. She had an open bad checks case at the time of her death in Philadelphia County. Obviously, she did not appear in court for her last hearing. She got a bench warrant. I would like to get the bail money back that I put up. How can I get my bail money back?
You should hire a lawyer to file a Motion for Abatement. First the lawyer should file a motion in miscellaneous criminal court to have the bench warrant lifted. Then the lawyer should file for an abatement. After the abatement is granted, you can get your bail money returned.
