How to Search For Warrants

In Illinois, there is a process for obtaining a copy of the warrants in effect. Warrant Records in Calhoun County are maintained by the sheriffs office. These records serve a twofold purpose, first, to give the public a knowledge of any warrants that have been issued in the area and, second, to protect the arrested person in case they commit a criminal offense in the future. The public usually has to apply for a copy of the warrant and wait a few days for it to be processed before they can see it. Some counties allow people to access their warrant information online; but, not all.

Searching for warrants on the Internet is something that is becoming increasingly popular among those that want to perform a background check on someone. Before the advent of the Internet, one had to file a request with the local courthouse where the warrant was filed in order to get a copy. People then had to pay a small fee to get this information and often were required to show proof of being a resident of the county in which the warrant was filed. This could prove to be very difficult for many rural residents who did not have a fax machine or Internet access and were therefore unable to present a valid reason for the search.

Now, one can simply go online and pay a small fee to obtain instant copies of the court warrants. One can find any person’s warrant information in a matter of minutes from their computer. They simply search through the website and can locate the person’s name, date of birth, address, sex, aliases, and more. It is also possible to obtain national warrant information. There are websites that offer this as well as local search capabilities.

If a person needs to search for a person’s warrant information they can do so in two ways. First, they can use the local courthouse where the warrant was filed. This option can be time consuming, but is still very effective. Second, people can try using one of the many online databases that have access to these records. This method may be time consuming, but it is also very effective and can help a person find information very quickly.

Both methods can be very effective. The only difference is the amount of money that has to be paid. With a courthouse search a person has to pay a fee of around ten dollars per record. However, with an online search a person only has to pay a few dollars for each search.

Per state laws, each state has its own rules and procedures. When performing a search a person must always check with their state government website to make sure that the warrant was processed properly. Most people never even realize that their warrant was issued until they get a knock on their door or find a package delivered to their house. This is why it is very important to make sure that one is up to date on their state’s laws. Doing so can make the difference between a person getting their day in court and a person having to face years of incarceration. Don’t wait to see if you will need to search; make sure you are prepared now.
