What does a request for an arrest warrant mean?

I got issued a paper saying a request for an arrest warrant has been issued for me. I am facing an F3 felony. My initial court date is the 13th of next moth and I am wondering if I could be arrested before then.

With out reading the entire document I would say that yes, you could be arrested before your court date.  Please go and seek legal help from an attorney in your area as to what is really going on.  You need some one to run interference for you.  Good luck.
