If you have an active arrest warrant out for yourself, that’s the kind of thing you need to know. Being caught off guard by police is a disorienting experience, and may leave you at a disadvantage in the legal sense. While you should never try to evade the police, it can be important to use what time you have available to make the best decisions for yourself.
The most effective way to go about it is to utilize an online public records database. SpyFly, for instance, has access to billions of legal documents in all 50 states. All you need is to search for your full name, and results should begin popping up immediately. SpyFly is completely confidential, and won’t alert anyone of your search, including police departments. This means you can investigate your arrest warrant without having to fear immediate arrest as a result.
SpyFly can also be used on a mobile device, meaning if you’re at work, or in the car, you can investigate your arrest warrant right away. This can be handy if you’re worried about being arrested at home. If you do have a warrant out for yourself, the first thing you need to do is make a visit to an attorney, and speak with them on what you need to do next.
Are there other ways to obtain my arrest warrant?
Yes, but they’ll likely be of little use. You can go down to the police department that’s been issued the warrant, and speak with them regarding the matter. However, if they possess a warrant for your arrest, then they’ll likely just arrest you on the spot. You can also contact your county courthouse, and speak with a county clerk. They can mail you a copy of your arrest warrant, but keep in mind the police may decide to stakeout your mailbox at that point since they can be notified by the clerk of your request.
What should I do if I have an arrest warrant?
Speak with a lawyer. Immediately. Regardless of the crime, you’re accused of, this is the best option for your future. They can provide you with accurate, and helpful legal counsel, and advise you on your next move.
Do not give yourself up dramatically. While it can be cool, you’ll be at a disadvantage, and may not have access to the proper mindset you’ll need when facing this legal battle. Remember, an arrest warrant is not proof of guilt, but proof of suspicion. Only a court can declare you guilty, and until your case has gone to trial, you are innocent in the eyes of the law.
