How to Find Out If You Have an Active Arrest Warrant in Any State

If you're not sure you have an outstanding arrest warrant it is crucial to find out. An active arrest warrant can affect your current career or become an issue with a potential job opportunity if they run a background check. Also, if you get pulled over by the police for any reason the arrest warrant will no doubt show up on your file. Even if you lived in a previous state or traveled out of state and got a warrant for an unpaid ticket and/or failed to appear in court the arrest warrant will appear on your record.

Luckily you have a few alternatives in your efforts to find out if you have a pending arrest warrant. First you can deal with the local courthouse and see if an arrest warrant is on file in your name. You will not get any information over the phone about your warrant with the records department so you will have to go in person. This is a time consuming approach and typically the court records department in most counties are only open during normal business hours.

One of the best options available to find out if you have an outstanding arrest warrant is to use an online search system to retrieve the information instantly. Using this method to conduct a background search for a warrant history is the most convenient, safe, and secure way because you can get any information you need on arrest warrants right from your personal computer and in the privacy of your own home.

Do Arrest Warrants Expire?

Typically, an arrest warrant does not expire and stays on your record until you satisfy it with the state or get it removed from your record. This could bring serious consequences for you if you have a warrant in your name, whether you're aware of the warrant or not. Educate yourself with the laws of your state or county where the arrest warrant was issued so you can better understand the process and your options.
