How to Perform a Florida Warrant Search Online 

The state of Florida considers warrants as public records which means that anyone can run a Florida warrant search. The most popular way to do this is through a public record website. To begin your Florida warrant search, you will need to know the full name of the person you want to lookup, including their middle name or initial if possible. Then you will enter the name into the search field and search. Once you get results, it is important to review the person of interest as sometimes there are multiple warrant results for people with the same first and last name. A middle name, county of residence, or date of birth is a good way to filter the results you get. Finally, once you are certain you have the correct person, you will be able to see their active Florida warrants, criminal history, arrests, court records and incarcerations. These are all public record that anyone can research in Florida. 

Florida Bench Warrant Search

A bench warrant is a form of arrest warrant issued by a Florida judge for violation of court order, a missed court appearance, delinquent court fees, or missing jury duty. The most common of the reasons for a Florida bench warrant is for missing a court date, which is not typically an offense where a person is arrested. The exception to this is if a bench warrant is ignored or if the court order was serious enough that the judge feels that the person of interest should be arrested and brought to court by law enforcement. A Florida bench warrant search can be run through a public record website anonymously, which is one of the most common ways to research them. One of benefits of using such a resource to perform your search is that public record sites typically offer anonymous searching and you can search statewide. If you know the county where the you missed a court appearance you can sometimes search through the county courthouse website where it was issued but sometimes you need to call in to find out this information. Once you have determined you have a bench warrant, you can sometimes have it removed by rescheduling your court appearance or paying any past due court fees.

To run a Florida arrest warrant search you will want to have the full name of the person and it’s helpful if you also know the county where it was issued, but this isn’t necessary to run your search with an online public record resource. If you find yourself with multiple results with your inquiry you will want to identify the correct person with a middle name, zip code or county, or their age. Once you find the correct Florida warrant record, you will be able see their charges, the date of issuance, plus a full criminal abstract of all their previous encounters with the law.
