Can you check for free arrest warrants?
There are ways that you can do a limited free check for arrest warrants and you may be able to find what you’re looking for without parting with any cash. The free methods of searching for warrants are either risky, limited or involve a lot of work on your part but they do exist and I’ll tell you about some of them below. If you are prepared to pay a little money then there are much better ways to search free arrest warrants and I’ll tell you about those too.
The most obvious way to find an arrest warrant for free is to ask a police officer. Law enforcement officers are able to do a nationwide search for any warrants that you might have so it sounds like a good idea. You might have a problem using this free method if you want to know if someone else has a warrant though. You could also find yourself arrested on the spot if the officer discovers a warrant on you. This is not a free arrest warrant search method that I would recommend.
There are many many courthouses in the country and if you have no idea where your warrant might be then you don’t stand much chance of ending up in the right place to make the right enquiries. You might encounter this problem when you are looking for arrest warrants and other background information for someone else. Maybe an employee or client. Don’t be afraid to use the court records office if you happen to know the location of the warrant though. It’s a relatively painless process.

Contacting every courthouse yourself is going to cost you in traveling and telephone charges so not even that method is
