Where to Search for Hawaii Warrants

The first question someone asks when they suspect they have a warrant is ‘How do I run a Hawaii warrant search?’ While there are a few options to performing this search, the easiest and most convenient way to perform a warrant search in Hawaii is through a public record website. With an online resource like this you lookup a warrant with a simple name search, and do it anonymously. There are a lot of other benefits to using an online public record resource such as being able to search all your criminal records, court records, arrests, incarcerations and more. Since these are all public record you can quickly research these online with just a first and last name.

Another option to check Hawaii state criminal records is to use a public record website where your searches are anonymous. This means that no-one will know you’re researching their criminal past and you can rest assured that your own personal searches are confidential as well. This can be helpful if you have an active warrant, as approaching any state agency can result in your immediate arrests. If you feel like you may have a Hawaii arrest warrant issued in your name, this is a great option to explore first as you can get ahead of the warrant and talk to an attorney to go over your criminal case, help you surrender yourself to law enforcement, and guide you through your criminal defense.

Another option to performing a Hawaii bench warrant check is to visit a reliable public record site and run a quick warrant check, as well as all your complete criminal history and/or public record.

Another type of bench warrant is called a capias warrant, where a person who defies a direct court order, who may be a current defendant in an ongoing court case, can be arrested. This typically happens when someone misses a court appearance of a very serious nature, or flees an trial, can be detained and brought to the courthouse to see the judge directly. These are also simple to lookup with the same search criteria as arrest and bench warrants.

Addressing an Arrest Warrant in Hawaii

If you find out there’s a warrant out for your arrest in Hawaii, there are some important steps to take. Ignoring the problem will only make things worse for you and your prompt attention to dealing with an arrest warrant can help your court case out. 

  • Talk to an Attorney: Before making any moves, speak with a criminal defense attorney. They can give you much needed guidance to your specific criminal court case, and perhaps get you out of hot water. 
  • Self-Surrender: In some criminal cases, especially for minor offenses or if there might be a misunderstanding, your attorney might advise you to turn yourself in. This can show the courts that you are exercising good faith and this could potentially help out your legal proceedings. 
  • Address the Underlying Issue: If your arrest warrant is due to a missed court date or delinquent court fees, taking care of these issues might help resolve the warrant itself. 
  • Prepare for the Legal Process: If your warrant is based on serious criminal charges, prepare your criminal defense with your attorney. You can formulate a defense or negotiate a plea deal if appropriate. 

Hawaii Warrants, Public Record, and Criminal Records

It’s important to note that while warrants become part of the public record, they are not the same as a criminal conviction. People are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law in Hawaii. A warrant issued in someone’s name simply means there’s an order from the court, but it doesn’t indicate guilt. However, if a warrant leads to an arrest and subsequent conviction, that conviction becomes part of an individual’s criminal record. 

Hawaii criminal records provide a comprehensive overview of an individual’s interactions with the criminal justice system in the state. This includes arrests, charges, convictions, incarcerations and even sometimes legal circumstances where criminal charges were dropped, or the individual was found not guilty. Warrants are just one piece of this puzzle.
