You can be detained at any time if you have an outstanding warrant in  your name. Don't risk being detained with legal consequences that may include loss of your driver's license, increased fines or jail time. The easiest and most convenient way to find this information is to use an online search system to conduct a background record search. Start by typing in the name of the person you need records for in the search box to the right and you will uncover records instantly.

The Facts You Need To Know About Warrants

Warrants are used in the United States legal system to uphold the law and punish citizens for harming others. There are many types of warrants, each serving a different purpose. Warrants typically work as follows. For law enforcement to legally arrest someone for a crime not committed within their view, the law requires an arrest warrant be issued for the person in question. Probable cause needs to be established for a judge to issue such a warrant and for law enforcement to make an arrest. A warrant is not needed, however, to arrest someone if law enforcement witnesses a person committing a crime in a public place.

What is probable cause?
Probable cause means an officer has gathered sufficient evidence against a suspect that supports the fact a crime has been committed by the person in question. This evidence is obtained from public testimony, clues at the scene, and crime details. All evidence must be presented in front of a judge who will consider the information carefully before issuing a search warrant. The law enforcement officer must be able to prove that the individual in question most likely committed the crime in order to get a legal warrant and carry out an arrest. A valid arrest warrant is one that includes:

Adequate evidence of probable cause
Is issued by a neutral and detached magistrate
Free of false information and evidence
Describes or names the person to be arrested

Below are some of the more common warrants used in the United States today. It’s important to know the difference between the various types of warrants to help you understand the U.S. legal system and avoid undue issues with the law.

Search Warrants
: A search warrant authorizes law enforcement to search for specific objects, materials or an individual in a specific location at a specified time. Due to those parameters, search will expire if not used within the time frame allowed. It is then illegal for law enforcement to conduct a search without going back to court and obtaining another search warrant. The exception to this is if the police witness someone's life being endangered and have probable cause they can search a private residence or location without a search warrant.

Traffic Citation Warrants: Citation Warrants are only issued in regard to traffic infractions committed with a motor vehicle. These include all kinds of traffic violations from serious driving offenses to seemingly innocent unpaid parking tickets. If you have forgotten to pay your traffic violation or missed your court date to contest the ticket you may be surprised to find a warrant in your name and not even know it. Failure to comply with the terms of a citation or appear in court could result in a warrant for your arrest. 

Sneak and Peek Warrants: A sneak and peek warrant authorizes law enforcement to enter a premise without the owner’s or occupant’s permission or knowledge based on the fact they have substantial evidence a crime has been committed inside. During such a search law enforcement are not allowed to physically disturb or seize any belongings in plain view. They are simply there to gather evidence needed to prove criminal activity and return at a later date with a search warrant. Sneak and peek warrants are widely used in illegal drug investigations because they allow the premises to be searched for evidence of illegal drug paraphernalia.

Arrest Warrants: Arrest Warrants also know as Criminal Warrants  are granted by a judge when there’s probable cause that a criminal act has been committed. The warrant must state the person in question or describe the suspect if the name is unknown. The warrant must be signed by a judge in order for the arrest to be legally carried out by police or law enforcement.

Civil Warrants: Civil Warrants pertain to a specific jurisdiction and are commonly issued in small claims court cases where civil suits are involved. If you find yourself with a civil warrant you're required to   to appear in court for a civil case at a specific location and time. Since civil warrants are rarely enforced, if an individual fails to appear for the court date he or she automatically loses the case and the other party wins. The civil case is then satisfied and the warrant is closed which means it's erased from your name.

Bench warrant:
This type of warrant is typically issued after a defendant has been before a judge, but fails to appear for their next scheduled court appearance. These types of warrants are used to make sure people who don't appear in court are held accountable.

Child Support Warrants: A child support warrant is issued when a non-custodial parent fails to pay their obligation of child support to the other parent who has custody of the child. If you're the one owed child support, you have the right to file a complaint against the non-cooperating parent to try and collect the debt. The court will issue a summons and date to appear in court to try and resolve the matter. If the party that owes child support doesn't show up for the court hearing, the judge has the authority to issue an arrest warrant for that person. If a non-custodial parent is prosecuted for neglecting their child support obligations it will show up on their criminal record as a federal offense and go against their credit on credit reports.
