How to Search For Warrant Records

A “warrant record” is simply a court document that certifies that a person has been arrested for a crime. It does not guarantee that the person actually committed the crime, only that the arrest was made with legal authority. If you were to search for warrants in Dorchester County, Maryland, you would first need to determine what type of warrant you are looking for. There are basically two types: criminal and civil. The clerk’s office in the county will usually list them under either names.

A criminal warrant will mean that the person you are looking for has committed a crime, whether they were convicted or not. This record is usually found on the courthouse’s website. Some counties have these available for free, but others require a small fee. They will also give you access to the person’s name, address, service provider, and more. The record will also show if the person has ever been declared bankrupt, which could make locating financial records much easier.

Civil warrants, however, are not the same as criminal ones. A civil warrant is simply one that is issued by a judge based on information that you provide them. It does not necessarily list the crime the person has committed. This record can be rather simple and only requires the name, age, and current city and state of residence of the person.

Searching the courthouse’s website is one way to see if you can find out more about a person’s arrest warrant records. The website will give you access to the courthouses in the jurisdiction in which the person was arrested. Some websites will also give you access to the National Sex Offender Registry online. Both of these resources can be helpful, especially if you want to check up on someone. The website will ask you to provide some basic information. You will probably have to pay a small fee to gain access, but it will still usually be much less than the cost of a private detective.

The clerk’s office where the arrest took place is also where the warrant was issued. If the person was convicted of a felony in the jurisdiction, it is likely that they will have a warrant out for their arrest. You may not know this information right away, but it is definitely worth trying to find out. Once you learn the person’s history, you can decide whether you want to hire them or not.

Warrant records can be obtained through public records searches online as well. There are many different sites that offer such searches. Some are free, but others may charge a small fee for the information that you seek. Before you start using one of these services though, be sure to research the information first and consider any possible consequences before paying. The benefits of free searches far outweigh the risks.
