Criminal Records Search

There are reasons to perform a background check, no matter it’s for you or for someone else. Checking if someone has a warrant is normal and reasonable. Nowadays, you can do almost everything online, including check warrants. In this post, we’ll show you how to find out if someone has a warrant online.
Search warrant on the court’s website
Many courthouses will provide single inquiry arrest warrant information. If you don’t want to ask by phone, you can search the local court’s website that might have issued the warrant. Some courts offer a search portal where you can look up warrants directly.
For example, if someone may issue a warrant in California, you can search the Superior Court California online.
Go to the government website and run a warrant search. You need to enter the following information:
- his/her full name,
- a date of birth,
- a driver’s license number
- a court case number.
You can also go to NCSC.org and find links to the regional court. But you still need to enter information to get the result.
If you don’t have enough information about the person or you can’t find anything, a third-party background check might be a better choice.
