Legal Answers
  • Q. Can i go to jail for a civil warrant?
    A: No. A civil warrant is a court document issued by General Sessions Court in Tennessee. it is the court designated for handling claims up to $25,000 without a jury. The use of the term "warrant" is similar to the term warrant used in criminal cases. However, the effect is very different. In essence, a civil warrant is a complaint, the document that begins a lawsuit. If you do not respond to a civil warrant, the person who issued it can get a court order granting the relief they ask for, so it is important that you not ignore the warrant. However, under no circumstance does a civil warrant give anyone the right or ability to arrest you and send you to jail.
