Waiver of Appearance For Out-of-State Ticket
While a traffic ticket will schedule a court date for you to present your case, you do not actually need to go if you have a North Carolina attorney represent you instead. You can sign a “Waiver of Appearance” that allows you to waive your obligation to appear in court and have your lawyer go for you instead.
North Carolina is one of the stricter states when it comes to traffic violations, so you will want to put your best foot forward by hiring an experienced attorney. As a non-resident driver, you may also be less aware of your rights and duties as a driver passing through North Carolina and as you navigate the state’s traffic court system. Let Attorney Kissling appear in court on your behalf and save you the trouble of having to return to North Carolina to deal with a traffic ticket.
It can be tempting to ignore out-of-state tickets, especially if you have no plans to return to North Carolina. However, as we’ve shown above, the cost and consequences can add up – even in your home state. If you live outside of North Carolina and received a speeding ticket or other traffic tickets on I-95, I-40, or another road or highway in North Carolina, do not hesitate to consult Lawrence J. Kissling III, PLLC, for legal assistance.
