It is important to check the records of each court in a jurisdiction where you believe a warrant may exist. You will see a status code in red text that says: “Case is delinquent”. Instead of trying to gather information on outstanding warrants by yourself, you can hire an attorney to do this for you. A missed payment or a failure to appear in court can result in the issuance of an arrest warrant. If you fail to appear in court, the judge may issue a warrant for your arrest. If you learn that there is a warrant out for your arrest, it may be best to consult an attorney before you contact the authorities. If you cooperate with the authorities and comply with your warrant, they may be less likely to impose severe penalties.
