Do Out-of-State & Foreign Visitors Have to Appear in Court?

Criminal charges and driving citations require even out-of-state visitors to appear in court. Do not ignore your charges or miss court dates. If you miss a court date, a warrant could be issued for your arrest. An extradition order could then be issued, giving you no choice but to return to Florida. Also, facing penalties in Florida (such as a driver's license suspension) can result in you facing the same penalties in your home state. While not all convictions result in jail, you may be sentenced to probation, diversion, or court-mandated programs.

If you are a foreign student or tourist, it is important that you know that certain crimes can bar you from returning to the United States or from applying for United States citizenship.
