How to Find Out if You Have an Arrest Warrant

Not knowing if you have a warrant out for your arrest may leave a black cloud over your head. While you may be scared and procrastinating to find out, speaking to a bail bondsman as soon as possible can ease some fears as well as reduce the processing time — getting you or your loved one out of jail sooner rather than later.

Here’s what you need to know about arrest warrants and how a bail bondsman can help.

What is an Arrest Warrant?

An arrest warrant is a written order issued and signed by a judge or grand jury. The warrant authorizes law enforcement to arrest you based on probable cause that you were involved in illegal activity.

Do Warrants Expire?

No, arrest warrants do not expire, and ignoring it will not make it go away. There are no statutes of limitations on arrest warrants. When an arrest warrant has been issued, it remains in force no matter how long ago it was issued. When executing a warrant, prosecutors and law enforcement must do so promptly and must prove that they made a reasonable effort to locate the accused individual.
