FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions

We often hear a lot of questions involving the topics below:

Key words: warrant, warrent, arrest warrant, active warrant, jail, prison, inmate, arrest, arrested, arrests, court documents, pleadings, pleading, order, orders, divorce, decree, decrees, service contact, service contacts, what states, states, plea agreement

Common questions regarding warrants:

"Do I have any outstanding warrants?"

"Does [enter friend's name] have any arrest warrants?"

"Does your website show warrants?"

Please keep in mind: Not all warrants will be found in public case records! A warrant is generally considered public record. However, in some situations the Court may choose to make the warrant confidential (hidden) until it is served.

If you are concerned that there might be a warrant for you or a person you care about, please don't depend on searching public records to find out about it. A warrant is a serious situation and you should seek competent legal counsel to avoid making a bad situation worse.

If the information is public, you will find it on Doxpop.

To find a warrant on Doxpop:

  1. You will need to login or sign up for an account.
  2. Search on the person's name.
  3. If you find a case you're interested in, just click the case number on the left.
  4. You will need to scan the minute entries for the Court's entry granting or ordering a warrant. The newest entries are at the top of the minute list.

If you expect that charges will be filed against a person and wish to know when this occurs, we suggest setting a search watch on the person's name. Click on the following link to learn how to set a search watch on a name.

We do not have arrest records on our site. However...

  • Once the court has created a case based on the arrest, then you should be able to find this information on Doxpop.
  • Just because someone has been arrested, that does not mean a court case will be created.
  • You can set a search watch on a person's name to see if a case will be created. Click on the following link to learn how to set a search watch on a name.
    • County Jail Inmates: If you are wanting to find information on an inmate at a County jail, you will need to contact that County's jail (or the County's Sheriff's Department) for more information.

    • Prison Inmates: The State of Indiana does offer a site to search for an inmate. You can find that information at https://www.in.gov/apps/indcorrection/ofs/ofs

    Though we have asked MANY times over MANY years, the State of Indiana has not given Doxpop permission to make court documents available to our customers.

    Currently, Doxpop only operates in Indiana and 2 counties in Michigan.

    We have recorded documents for Bay, and Iosco Counties in Michigan.

    On our blog, you can find a list of States with links directed to learn more about their court information and laws.

    We are unable to provide court documents at this time.
