Trying to get a warrant dealt with without going to jail long enough to lose my job.

I have a warrant for VOP on a felony
charge. They want money more than time.
But I can’t pay anything unless I’m
working, which I can’t do if locked up.
Only recently obtained a job paying
enough for me to put money toward
restitution and court costs. Any advice
would be appreciated.

You can reach out to a bondsman to assist with the process or an attorney that routinely assists with bond issues.  They can help resolve the bond matters, put the funds up front, and then you can make payments to them without fear of having to get thrown in jail at any moment.
