Warrant Records – What Are They and Where Can I Find Them?

” Warrant records contain the history of a criminal complaint, arrest or arraignment, and judgment.” By definition, a warrant is issued by a judge “for the arrest of a person for a specified crime.” Warrants are issued based on the jurisdiction in which they are issued. In Ionia County, warrants can be issued for several reasons: to protect yourself, your home, your business, or to execute a person for crime. In other words, you can be arrested for any reason at all.

There are two types of warrants. A grand jury may issue a warrant for an individual person for a specific crime. A bench warrant authorizes agents of the court to search a person for specific items, without warrant. And, an arrest warrant is issued by a judge “for the arrest of a person for a specified crime.”

The process of obtaining and accessing these records typically starts with a person’s county courthouse. You can go to the courthouse and fill out an application to request information on a criminal record. Typically, this requires more than one document from multiple providers, including name, address, and social security number. Then a judge will decide whether or not you qualify under state and federal law to have access to these records. If the records are found to be in need of access, the clerk of court will require you to sign an authorization granting access.

If a warrant is active, then it is displayed on a public display. You can check to see if a warrant is active by going to the website for your county courthouse. Under ” Records Access,” you can find ” Warrant Information” and search for a person’s record. In Michigan, this service is available for free. However, you may still need to pay a small fee if you want to conduct more intensive searches.

In some counties, you can be charged a small processing fee if you need access to a criminal record search. Some counties do not charge, but most allow you to access records without paying the cost. In these cases, the records are only available upon request. For people who cannot afford the cost, online records searches are a good alternative. There are several sites that offer free searches as well.

It should be noted that having a criminal record can affect a job application. Depending on whether you have served time in jail or have a clean record, some employers will deny employment based on a past crime. Also, having a criminal record makes buying a home or renting a place to rent very difficult. In these cases, it is best to avoid carrying a concealed weapon unless you have a permit from a state that permits this. Finally, some employers will perform a background check as part of their employment consideration. Having a warrant can cause problems with this type of employment.
