Check yourself for active arrest warrants today
Checking for arrest warrants is one of the most important background checks you will ever do on yourself, or on anyone else for that matter. If you’ve got a warrant for arrest and you choose to ignore it then you could find yourself with a hefty fine or a vacation in jail. So what exactly is an arrest warrant?
There are 2 kinds of warrant that can get you arrested
There are two forms of warrant that you can get arrested for. There are Bench Warrants and Arrest Warrants. Arrest Warrants are issued by a court when the police present adequate evidence that you might have committed a crime. Bench Warrants on the other hand are issued by the court when you fail to do something that the court has told you to do like pay a fine, do community service or even just turn up on time.
Being aware of arrest warrants when they’re issued is very important and could save you a lot of money or even prevent you getting thrown into jail. The first thing you should do is find out if you have a warrant for your arrest using an online public records database. If you do have one then you should get yourself a lawyer as soon as possible and arrange to hand yourself in.
Give yourself up before they start chasing you
The trick is to give yourself up to the court before the police come looking for you. It will be the difference between walking into court voluntarily and being dragged in handcuffed by the police. Which of these two scenarios do you think will gain you the most sympathy and favourable treatment from the court?
Don’t waste time, check for arrest warrants now and make sure that you check regularly in the future.
