Who Needs To Look Up Warrant Records?

Warrant Records in Pender County North Carolina are public documents that list any type of judgment, arrest or warrant issued against a person. You can get access to these public records through the Public Defender’s Office and the sheriff’s office. These offices keep these records online for the public to view. It is important to have a valid reason to get these documents, because if you are not a law enforcement officer, the judge can issue a warrant for your arrest. In addition to warrants, civil cases and criminal cases are also listed here.

Warrant Records in Pender County North Carolina

There are several ways to get a copy of your warrant. If you have been arrested, the arresting officer will fill out an Affidavit of Information. In this Affidavit of Information, the person to be arrested will state their identity, physical description, where they work, where they live, their social security number and other information. You can then go to the courthouse to obtain a copy of this Affidavit of Information. A warrant will also be referred to as an Indictment.

The process of obtaining a warrant may not be as smooth as one would like. First the clerk who receives your request will give you a date to appear in court. The date is usually one month before the case is scheduled to begin in court. You will also be required to attend a preliminary hearing before the judge decides on the date of the hearing. Once the judge approves the date, a formal warrant for your arrest will be issued.

A warrant does not always mean a person has been arrested. They only record that person’s name and have it on file in the court system until a court hearing to issue an arrest warrant for that person. If there is no hearing and no warrant, then the record remains public record. If there is an arrest warrant, then that record will be destroyed.

Warrant records are kept in two formats, although they may be the same or similar. Certified copies are issued by the clerk that serves the warrant, and can be picked up at any local courthouse. Certificate copies are normally issued by the State’s Attorney General. They are more difficult to obtain, but are faster to obtain than a certified copy.

Searching through warrant records does not require a person to disclose his or her full name. In fact, a warrant name is not even needed because the person requesting the record does not have to explain their identity. In short, a person can search online for public information about a person without having to ask that person’s full name. There are many reasons for using this type of service. A background check can determine if a person is a safe person to let in the house and whether that person has any warrants out for their arrest.
