Check for Orange County warrants online
Check for Orange County warrants online:
If you have a warrant for your arrest, as you can expect, taking care of that is a priority. Because you can be arrested at any time
, for any reason, you will want to take care of that first.
To check to see if you have an outstanding warrant, log onto the Orange County Superior Court
website. You can input your information and locate your criminal case. The case overview will determine whether a warrant has been issued. Moreover, the overview will state “fugitive”. The OC Courts Website will also tell you if there is a DMV hold on your driver’s license.
Another way to search for a warrant is going to the criminal clerk’s office at any courthouse and request that they run your information in their warrant database. Your basic information will suffice – e.g., name, date of birth, or driver’s license number.
The most official way is to request a formal background report of your criminal record from the California Department of Justice
. It will require you to submit a live scan, the payment of approximately $50, and a waiting period of 10 business days. You will receive a formal print out of your criminal record which will also reveal the presence of a warrant.
Once you have confirmed that there is a warrant for your arrest, you must take care of that by appearing in court before court starts, or by hiring an attorney to go into court, and place the matter on calendar, and recall the warrant for you.
Great! Now your warrant no longer exists. However, once the warrant recall is done, you’ll have an active case, and you may need to deal with a potential probation violation for the parts of your sentence that were not completed.
