Questions and Answers

Must you know someone's address to have a warrant issued?

Ad

No, their information will be know in the area for the person who has the warrant out for their arrest, the police will have access to the persons address or last known address so that they can apprehend the person in question.

No, the address is not needed. The only problem is that you, yourself can't issue a warrant for somebody. Now you could press charges on someone for abuse, stalking and various other things. But you can't just issue a warrant, that is something done by the court system to catch offenders.

If you have his details such as full name you can call the local law enforcement to ask what they were arrested for. Usually, you will get details but if not then ask for when this person's court date is scheduled and you can visit the court to see what he was arrested for. You also can inquire with the local free public defender's office to see if he was assigned a public defender.

Yes, you can report if you see and have the location of a person that has a warrant out for their arrest. Do not approach that person and wait for local law enforcement to confirm that they are sending an officer to the location.

I am trying to find out where I can look up warrants for all states?

My husband has had contact with police in two different occasions and no warrants have come up...but the lawyer says he has a warrant...wouldn't the police arrest him if a warrant came up?

It depends on what the warrant is for. If there was a warrant for unpaid parking tickets, they may not arrest him. Arrest Warrant has an online database search for all states that you can use or visit the government pages of any states that he has resided or visited for a period of time to see if they have a warrant search.

If the attorney informed you of the warrant they should be able to provide proof of that warrant.

More questions and answers

I was told by someone that I have a warrant for my arrest how can I find out if I do?

I'm not sure what is exactly going on. We got into a argument and for the first time he put his hands on me. the apartment is little so was some hitting the walls and I got a lump on my head. If it wasn't for his friend he would have really hurt me. Now I'm worried that I may be under arrest for something he did. I was asked by the responding officer if I wanted to press charges and I said no.

Call your local law enforcement. You should have been arrested right there at the point of the altercation since there was an officer present but there may have been charges later filed although it is unlikely. It is best to just call and see.

How in the world can I find out if I have a warrant without paying for it. Everyone says it is free then they want money?

I have tried so many sites and they all want money. Is nothing free any more. I think it is fraud cause they say its free

Call your local law enforcement. They can't arrest you over the phone so inquiring is minimal risk if you do have a warrant. That is also the best way to know for sure as databases online have to be updated and if your warrant was issued recently it may not show up in an online search.

How can I find out if I had any charges filed against me?

I was recently pulled over after an accident. I had been drinking at the time, the police talked to me took my information, but did not even say I was under arrest or being charged for anything. Everything happened so quickly that I am not sure if I was charged with anything, how can I find out?

If you were not taken to jail that evening, there probably is not an arrest warrant. What you can do is request a copy of the accident report for your insurance company and if a warrant was issued it will be noted on the report.

Free warrant look ups for myself

There are not really any free sites but you can look up warrants on most local and federal .gov websites. You also can call the clerk of courts for your region and ask them to search your name in their database for any outstanding warrants or court appearances.

I can't find a site that doesn't ask for a credit card?

Call your local law enforcement or have a friend calls and inquire if there are any warrants against you. That will be free.

He has an warrant issued for mistake of the jailers, how can we not let that be used against him?

Got released on a bond and it was an accidental release, why was a warrant issued? It was clearly the jailers mistake? How can it be dropped?. I have tried: He is in jail right now. I think it was caused by: Being released

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

If he was not supposed to be released, the warrant was to get him back to jail to correct the release mistake. It should not count against him but you should hire an attorney to look further into a new possible hearing to keep the release as official and not a mistake. It will help your case if he did not resist or get caught doing any criminal acts for the brief time that he was released.
