Everyone is entitled to know the details of their legal history and current legal status, and warrants are no exception. If you think you might have a warrant in Texas—or want to confirm that you don’t—there are several ways you can look up this information. Read on to learn more, and give Brazoria County Bail Bonds a call today if you need assistance with bail bonds in Angleton.
Visit the public records website
One of the easiest ways to conduct a search for warrants in Texas is by visiting www.publicrecords.onlinesearches.com. If you decide to search by the entire state of Texas, you can look at a couple of different types of warrants. One option is for child support evaders. If you want to see if you have a warrant in this category, select it from the menu and then go down the alphabetized list to look for your last name. If you have a warrant out for you because of unpaid child support, your name, photo and basic identification information will be listed, along with the total you owe in unpaid support.
If you want to check for a warrant in another category, you can view the Texas Most Wanted DEA links, where you will find the names of anyone wanted on drug-related charges. Texas has three geographically divided areas for DEA warrants, and each area has information such as names, photos and pertinent details. Just select the area you want to search from the three geographical options.
You can also narrow your search to specific counties. Each county will have its own way of showing results, and may give you a few different options for conducting searches. You might find more information for each person listed in one county versus another.
Visit the “Got Warrants” website
Another useful site to help you find out if you have a Texas warrant is www.gotwarrants.com. Here, you can type in your city or your last name. If you search by last name, you will see results for everyone with that last name across the continental U.S., so you may want to try searching by city first.
Check your county’s website
Many county websites in Texas have an option to check for a warrant, so it can’t hurt to look on your county’s site to see if they offer that service.
Contact the sheriff’s office
You can also visit or call your local sheriff’s office to find out if you have a warrant. Do be advised, however, that the sheriff may arrest you if you come in person. You may be able to set a court date and be released at that point, in which case you must be absolutely certain to appear in court. If you fail to appear, you could be served a second warrant for not being there.
