[ARCHIVED] Learn More: Bench Warrant Removal Program

Issaquah Municipal Court is helping defendants get back on track following COVID-19 restrictions.

For a limited time, persons with bench warrants in a municipal court within King County can quash a qualified warrant through the “Back on Track” warrant amnesty program. This program is available from April 1 through June 30, 2021.  

Many warrants under $5,000 will be handled administratively, with the warrant immediately removed and a new court hearing scheduled. Warrants more than $5,000 and those that involve Domestic Violence, No Contact Orders, DUIs, Physical Control, Reckless Driving or Negligent Driving 1st Degree (amended from a DUI), no matter the amount of the warrant, will be referred to the judge for consideration, depending on court policies. 

Individuals with an outstanding bench warrant should contact the specific court where the warrant was issued. Requests to quash warrants can be made by phone, email or in writing.  

For Issaquah Municipal Court, call 425-837-3170 or send us an email.

The court may require the citation or case number, personal identification and updated contact information. If the citation/case number is not known, the court will be able to assist in finding that information. All municipal courts in King County have remote hearing options that do not require in-person contact, including virtual and telephone hearings.  

 The “Back on Track” program is for a limited time, and runs only from April 1 through June 30, 2021. Individuals who qualify are strongly encouraged to participate and contact courts today.
