Warrants can be a serious issue if not dealt with swiftly

What happens if you ignore your warrant?

If you ignore your Bench Warrant, Arrest Warrant or Search Warrant your legal matter will be escalated within the judicial system.
The cost is far more than just money! Ignoring your Warrant can lead to further charges being laid against you. Apart from added violations, increased fines, licence suspensions and cancellation, there is even the possibility of jail.

Warrants do not expire in the state of California and will not go away.

How do I know if I have a warrant?

There are numerous ways to find out if you have a warrant.

California Department of Justice and Attorney General can perform a background check to see if you have any outstanding warrants. Various websites also exist, but they come at a cost and don’t always have full Judicial Information. Warrants in California are considered a public record. The data input can be subject to delays. This can affect the accuracy of the information.

Speaking to the clerk or attending the courthouse in the County of issue can provide accurate information, but may lead to your arrest. If you feel that you may have a Warrant issued in your name, contact your Attorney. They can search within the judicial system. They can then provide you with the best possible way to proceed.

How do I check if someone has a warrant?

In the state of California you are able to perform a free online Warrant search. There is a Wanted Persons System (WPS).

This is provided by the Department of Justice and the Attorney General. You can also contact the courthouse in the county where you think a warrant may be issued. Some Courthouses have a Warrants line specifically dedicated to this. If you cannot get your results by phone then you can visit the courthouse physically.

At Road Justice we are happy to assist our clients in accessing the most up to date Judicial records to determine whether Warrants exist for the nominated person.
