Would you know where to look for arrest warrants
If you have a warrant for arrest you will find that it’s far from an amusing situation. You will be even less happy if you didn’t do anything wrong and the warrant is some kind of error. Warrants are bad news and at best they can cost you money and worst case land you in jail. So do you want to know how to find an arrest warrant?
If you want to do something about a warrant before it turns into an even bigger problem for you than it already is then you need to know that you have one. This isn’t always obvious especially if you are not guilty of the offence. There is now an easy solution to looking up warrants that you can use in a flash.
Do you know what a warrant for arrest is?
If you have an warrant for arrest then it means that the law enforcement agencies have an instruction to arrest you and take you to jail. The police can apply to a Judge for an Arrest Warrant and a court itself can give you Bench Warrants for things like failing to turn up in court etc. Both types of warrant will get you arrested unless you deal with it first so there is very little difference at the end of the day.
Who has your identity?
Getting your identity stolen is no joke either and it seems to be happening more and more. I’m guessing that the apparent explosion of identity theft is at least in part due to the increasing tendency to put everything online and so offering the thieves more opportunity to steal your details. If someone uses your stolen identity to commit a crime then you can get left with the warrant.
Beat the cops to it – find warrants first
The Internet to the rescue – Don’t you just love it? You can find almost anything you want online today and arrest warrants are there too. All you need is a web site that makes it easy to search for the stuff so that you don’t have to do the leg work. It works too.
Arrest warrants are just one example of the information that you can learn about someone online. There are web sites devoted to bringing all this public domain information into your home for you to search it whenever you want to and it’s fully confidential.
Is there another way to check for arrest warrants
There are alternative ways to to find out if you have a warrant if you don’t care to use a specialist public records database web site. I’m not sure why you would want to use them when you can just go online and do it in minutes but here they are anyway,
Just ignore it. Wait for the police to come for you. This works most of the time but the consequences of getting arrested out of the blue are not happy ones.
If you know where the warrant came from you can go and ask the courthouse. This isn’t going to work if the warrant was raised in a different area.
Asking a law enforcement officer is likely to find your warrants for you if you have any but expect to get arrested on the spot.
