How To Conduct Court Records Searches Online

Warrant Records are basically court documents that show when and where a person was arrested. This type of document is used in a variety of situations to protect you and others from dangerous individuals. In the United States, warrants are often used for immigration purposes, to get a property seized by the government or for any number of other reasons. If you need to search these records in Mercer County, there are specific offices you can visit.

In Mercer County, there are four regional courts. One of them is the Circuit Court of Orange County, which is located in the city of Morgantown. The city of Bath was given jurisdiction over the other three courts by a previous court order. Once those records were relocated to Bath, all four courts can now access the “Warrants of Errors” database.

When searching through the “Warrants of Errors” database you will be able to view all warrants and their docket dates. You can also see if the warrant was active, expired or cancelled. This is ideal information for someone who needs to apply for legal services, such as a lawyer. You might also find the case number and address if you need to contact the police about an outstanding warrant.

If you have an idea about the person you are investigating, it is helpful to know the location where they reside, their job and their family members. The last thing you want is to hire a criminal that you are not familiar with. A background check would help catch any red flags, such as a family member that lives nearby. However, you do not have to go through every state to find this information. Searching federal records is a good place to start.

Once you have located the state records you need, you can see the county court house where the warrant was issued. If there are multiple warrants out for your person’s arrest, the location of each one on the docket will also be listed. Usually, warrants are issued in the names of the accused, or defendants. The names of spouses, children or other relatives will not appear on the dockets. Searching the records online can provide you with the information you need in only a few minutes.

Warrant searches are often used by bailiffs when they come to the residence of a defendant who cannot appear in court. If they are looking for someone who is wanted on a warrant of absent, they use this information as well. There are even companies that offer to locate people that have been arrested and put them in the system for warrants. If you do not have time to visit the courthouse yourself, many of these companies have online resources for you to utilize. They can provide the information you need within the hour and without having to leave your home.
