In Nevada, you can find out whether or not you have outstanding warrants in your name by searching online, or calling by phone, but it is always recommended to hire a lawyer if you choose to call by phone. If there is a chance you have an active warrant, it is not wise to call, as you risk your information and location being tracked by law enforcement or authorities. If you or your loved one has an active warrant, the best option is to consult with a lawyer you can trust and who has experience in handling these situations.
When a crime is committed without law enforcement present to see it happen, officers must obtain an arrest warrant prior to arresting, or attempting to arrest, the suspect. Having an active warrant, it is important to have a trusted legal partner with the knowledge to help you and work with you through the process, whether you are researching if an active warrant is in your name or if you need ongoing legal assistance and guidance.

Why do I have a warrant in my name?
Many factors may play a role in the issuance of a warrant:
- Someone commits a crime, without law enforcement present to observe the crime, and the officer requests that a judge issue a warrant following the presentation of probable cause using evidence
- A District Attorney files a complaint in your name
- A grand jury indicts you
When determining if there is an active warrant in your or a loved one’s name, it can be terrifying and debilitating. Prioritizing an appearance in court with your trusted lawyer, prior to being arrested, is wise and your lawyer will help you navigate and guide you through the process based on your circumstances. The action of appearing in court, with your lawyer, may be pleasing to the judge, as they are often impressed when a suspect comes to court with an active warrant, and this may often result in reduced charges or fines.
Law enforcement in Las Vegas may arrest those with active warrants at any time, especially if they are stopped for another violation. Those with active warrants should turn to a trusted lawyer as soon as possible, as they will help you fight for the best possible outcome for your situation. In many misdemeanor cases, law enforcement seldom searches for suspects, but will arrest them if they run into them during another stop.
