Free Arrest Warrant Search Online

Determining if you or a friend has an outstanding search warrant is relatively simply using our Free Online Warrant Search tool. Keeping track of your own arrest warrant status is also a smart idea. A forgotten ticket or missed court date can result in a bench warrant or arrest warrant. It’s even possible for a notice mailed from the court to get lost. Administrative errors do happen, and a defensive explanation for why you didn’t know about an arrest warrant is unlikely to solve a problem. Try our Arrest Warrant Search along with our premium membership which comes with customer support and search assistance if you can’t find what you are looking for. Simply enter a first and last name and search to see who has an arrest warrant or any other criminal record. To start a free arrest warrant search, visit our arrest warrant blog at the bottom of the page and send us the full name of the person in question as well as their state of residence.

Check My Arrest Warrants

If an outstanding warrant has been issued for your arrest, it is best to know about it. Resolving an outstanding warrant is important, because even a simple ticket for a traffic matter can turn into jail time. Knowledge of a warrant can help you prepare and reach out to a defense attorney. An arrest warrant is a surprise no one wants. This can be an avoidable disruption if you know where to look plus, sometimes there are inaccuracies in public record reporting so it’s best practice to verify your own criminal record from time to time. A traffic citation is a criminal violation that can lead to a warrant if left unattended.

Many courthouses will provide single inquiry arrest warrant information. If you’re concerned about a local/state warrant, it is possible to obtain the information needed by picking up the phone.

If the individual has open warrants in another state or even federal warrants, it is necessary to contact the appropriate local, state, or federal courthouse for information.

Of course, you may visit the courthouse in another state to inquire about your warrant status. Some courthouses only provide information in writing, and significant delays may result. However, a personal visit to the courthouse may be unnecessarily nerve-wracking or result in an immediate arrest. An attorney can be engaged to perform a search but lawyers are likely to charge a fee to perform this service.

Try our Arrest Warrant Search along with our premium membership and perform unlimited arrest warrant searches. Check your arrest warrants status or any other public record with a simple name search.
