Failure to Appear in Court
According to a Pennsylvania civil court rule, if a party or a witness in a civil case is ordered to appear for court or a hearing and fails to appear as ordered, the court can issue a warrant. A person can also be held in contempt when he fails to obey an order from court. The bench warrant must be issued within 60 days of the date the person fails to appear. A bench warrant can only sent out if a notice of the hearing was provided. Actual notice can be established by different forms of proof:
- The party signed a receipt for a court order containing notice of a court date.
- A “competent adult” who is not a party to the case and not an employee or relative of a party handed the order to the party.
- A court employee handed the order to the party.
