Arrest records are public records - They are there for you to use
Until you try out a public records investigation site you won’t believe how easy it is to find arrest records, criminal records, arrest warrants and many other things about people very easily. If you don’t take advantage of this wealth of information that’s available to you whenever you meet someone new or even deal with someone you know already then you are missing an opportunity to protect yourself. You can’t afford not to be careful about your friends, the people that surround you at work, your dates, people who do work for you. Even the casual acquaintance could be a risk to you. Anyone you know or meet could have a criminal record or there might be an arrest warrant out on them for something.
Before you hire someone to do some work for you make sure that you check to see if there are any arrest records or criminal records associated with the person. If you are hiring for your employer then you have a duty to the organization that you work for too. If you have found a new love and are thinking about getting more involved with them then you owe it to yourself to make sure that you understand this person’s background. Finding the truth before you get in too deep could save your a lot of pain down the line.
But wait - An arrest record does not make someone a criminal
You should be careful not to make too many assumptions until you know the whole truth. Just because someone has been arrested at some point in their life doesn’t mean that they are a criminal. People get arrest warrants for all sorts of things and thousands of people get arrested every day. Arrest warrants are usually out of your control and getting arrested because the police think that you might have done something wrong does not make you a criminal. Be careful not to jump to conclusions too quickly. Find out all the facts first.
Having said all that, everyone that gets convicted had to be arrested in the first place. So if you find out that someone has an arrest record then you have a good reason to investigate further. It could have been nothing, just a mistake even. But it might have been something more.
National searches for arrest records
You can, if you have the time and patience, do a nationwide search for arrest records by making an enquiry at every court in the country. Given that there are literally thousands of courts, this is a practical impossibility. So how do you look up someone’s arrest records?
What can you do if you can’t check out every court in the country? The best that you can do is to take reasonable care when you search someone’s background. You must try as hard as you reasonably can to find the records that you need.
Checking with an arrest records public web site is a simple and easy thing to do. Public records databases can be found online and they offer you their arrest records and other data in an easily searchable format. The information in these databases has been collected over many years from all sorts of publicly available sources. Online and offline sources are used and assimilated and added to daily. You can do an investigation using these web sites because of the public records they contain and you can do a nationwide warrant or record search. Sometimes the public records site may not be as up to date as the records in the actual courts but it’s not bad and it does give you the opportunity to to check in many different areas at once and do it very quickly.
If you do find something on the public records site that gives you cause for concern then you might want to do a more targeted search by using the courts themselves. Find out where the person has lived and worked over the past 7 years. When you know that information you can apply in just the courts in the areas where the person spent most of their time.
You can never be absolutely certain that someone doesn’t have an arrest record but you can use these guidelines to satisfy yourself that you have taken all reasonable precautions.

Finding the right partner nowadays is a difficult enough task at the best of times but how do you know that your new love is being honest with you? Whether you just met or you’ve known him or her for years they could have skeletons in their cupboard that they don’t want to you to know about. Some of these skeletons could be very important to you so it’s worth doing a little digging. For instance, make sure that you know how to find out if someone is married.
Ask them if they are married
The obvious first step is to simply ask them whether they are married or have been in the past. If they are honest they will tell you the truth and the skeletons can be left behind. But how do you know that they are being honest with you?
Pay careful attention to what they say and look for discrepancies. It’s very difficult to keep up a complicated lie and mistakes can easily creep into the story. Do the dates in his story make sense? Does he go away on mysterious business trips etc? You only need to find one thing that you absolutely know is a lie to cast a cloak of doubt on everything else they’ve told you. If this happens then confront them immediately and walk away if you don’t get a satisfactory reply.
Do some undercover work
If you have an idea where someone might have been married then you can write to the local offices in that area and ask for marriage records. But what if you don’t know where they came from? Even if you do there’s no guarantee that that’s where they got married so how do you find out if someone is married when you don’t have any idea where they might have done it?
Find out if someone is married the easy way
Until very recently the means to search for information such as whether you are married or not was reserved solely for the law enforcement agencies. Through the power of the Internet these same databases are now available to everyone and made easily accessible through very affordable software. Not only can you find out whether they are married but whether they have a criminal record or have been arrested, when and where they were born, whether they have been declared bankrupt and many, many other background checks. A small investment to gain access to all this information can save you from making a big mistake.

How To Find Out If Someone Is Married
The information below is not legal advice. Be sure to contact a local criminal defense attorney or attorney referral service to be referred to a croiminal defense attorney in your area.
If you are a law-abiding citizen, your chances of being arrested are slight. It is important, though, that you know “Your Rights If Arrested.” An informed and alert individual is the best guarantee that your rights will be upheld during a criminal or DUI arrest.
The basic rights of a citizen under arrest are stated in the Fifth, Sixth and Eighth Amendments of the “Bill of Rights” of the United States Constitution.
– “No person . . . shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty or property, without due process of law . . .” (Fifth Amendment).
– “In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury . . . and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor; and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.” (Sixth Amendment).
– “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor shall cruel and unusual punishments be inflicted.” (Eighth Amendment).
Since the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, the states have also had to guarantee these rights. This amendment provides: “No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of the citizens of the United States . . .”
Many of the provisions found in the “Bill of Rights” of the U.S. Constitution also appear in the “Bill of Rights” of the Illinois Constitution. The following discussion is based upon both constitutions and upon other laws governing the citizens of this state.
WHO CAN MAKE A CRIMINAL ARREST:
Any law enforcement officer such as a policeman, sheriff, deputy sheriff or state trooper can make a lawful arrest. The arrest may be made with a warrant or, under certain circumstances, without a warrant.
A warrant is an order describing the person to be arrested and the charge made; it is issued by a magistrate or judge upon the complaint of someone. It directs all law enforcement officers of the state or, in some cases, authorizes a private person by name to arrest the person named in the complaint. The arrested person is to be brought before the Court issuing the warrant or, if that is not possible, before the most accessible Court in the same county.
A law enforcement officer must have a warrant for your arrest unless one of the following circumstances exists:
* The law enforcement officer has reasonable ground to believe that a warrant for your arrest has been issued in this state or in another jurisdiction.
* You committed or attempted to commit a crime in the presence of the officer.
* The officer has reasonable ground to believe both that a crime has been committed and that you are the person who committed it.
CITIZEN’S CRIMINAL ARREST:
A private citizen may make an arrest under certain circumstances. The law permits a citizen to detain, or place under arrest a person who commits or attempts to commit a criminal offense in his presence other than an ordinance violation. All the person making the arrest has to do is prevent the accused from leaving. He may take the person by the arm and say something like, “Stop. I’m holding you for the police.”
WHAT NOT TO DO IF FOR A CRIMINAL ACT:
Do not resist a law enforcement officer who attempts to arrest you - even if you are innocent. The fact that you are innocent will not make the arrest illegal if the officer’s action conformed to the requirements of a legal arrest as stated above.
If the arrest is legal and you resist, you may be guilty of the crime of resisting lawful arrest. If the arrest is illegal, you are entitled to bring an action against the law enforcement officer for false arrest.
It is best not to resist a citizen’s arrest, although you can’t be prosecuted for resisting arrest. You may be found guilty of assault and battery.
The person making a citizen’s arrest cannot be liable for damages for false arrest if he had reasonable ground for believing a crime had taken place and you are the person who committed it.
Do not resist a law officer’s attempt to search or “frisk” you. It is legal for an arresting officer to search your person and the area in your immediate presence.
Even if he does not arrest you, an officer - after identifying himself - may stop you in any public place if he has reason to believe that you have committed, are committing or are about to commit a crime. He may demand your name and address and an explanation of your actions. If he reasonably suspects that he or another is in danger of being attacked, he may search you for weapons.
YOUR RIGHTS AFTER ARREST
The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that as soon as you are taken into custody you must be informed of the following:
1. You have a Constitutional right to remain silent.
2. Anything you say can be held against you.
3. You have the right to legal counsel and that if you cannot afford a lawyer, one will be appointed for you.
4. If you choose, you may have a lawyer present during interrogation.
In addition to advising you of your rights, the arresting authorities must respect your rights. For example, you cannot legally be required or forced by a police officer or any one else to talk, to answer questions, or sign any papers. If by threats, by persistent questioning or other means of coercion, you are forced to give incriminating information, you can prevent its use against you in court.
Within a reasonable time after you have been taken into custody, you have a right to make a reasonable number of telephone calls or otherwise communicate with an attorney of your choice and a member of your family. If you are transferred to a new place of custody, this right of communication is renewed. If you are not a U.S. citizen, you must be informed without delay of your right to contact your local consulate or embassy. Consular officials may visit you, help you arrange for legal representation, and contact your family.
You have a right to an itemized receipt for all money and property taken from your person after you are taken into custody.
You have a right to be “booked” within a reasonable period of time. “Booking” is the entry of a charge against you in a record called the “arrest book” or “police blotter.”
Should your detention go beyond a reasonable period of time without booking (more than several hours or perhaps overnight), your attorney may go to a judge and obtain a writ of habeas corpus. This is a Court order instructing the police to bring you before the Court so that a judge may decide whether you are being held lawfully.
OBTAINING RELEASE ON BAIL
You have a right to apply for and post bail as a means of obtaining your release from custody. The Court will normally set bail, even with a charge of murder or other serious crimes, unless the proof is evident or the presumption is great that the person is guilty of the crime.
Bail is the money or other security you deposit with the Court as an assurance that you will appear for trial. The Court will accept property (real estate) as bail provided certain detailed conditions are fulfilled.
YOU MAY WANT TO CONTACT A CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY TO DISCUSS:
If there is a warrant for your arrest, the amount of bail will be stated on the warrant. For certain minor offenses the amount of bail is fixed by a judge and you have a right to be brought before a judge for that purpose at the next regular Court session. Or, you may be released on your own recognizance - that is, your own word that you will keep your date in Court.
YOUR RIGHTS IN COURT
You have a right to a reasonable time to prepare a defense before being tried in Court. Whether or not you declined your right to be represented by counsel during police interrogation, you have the right to be represented by counsel in Court. You are entitled to a reasonable time to obtain a lawyer of your own choosing. If you want a lawyer and cannot afford one, the Court must appoint one to defend you.
You are entitled to know the charge against you and to have, without cost, a copy of the formal paper that contains the charge.
CONTACT A CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY TO DISCUSS YOUR RIGHTS:
You are entitled to plead “not guilty.” If you do so you will be tried by an impartial jury unless you specifically waive your right to a jury trial.
You are not required to testify if you do not wish to do so. If you do not testify, neither the judge nor the jury can consider your silence as evidence of guilt. In the eyes of the law you are innocent unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt by the evidence presented in Court.
If you are not a U.S. citizen, the judge must inform you, before accepting a guilty plea, that a criminal conviction could result in immigration consequences, including immigration detention (custody) and deportation from the United States.
How you plead and whether you testify are vitally important questions and you should have the advice of a criminal defense attorney/ lawyer. An attorney referral service can be a good source for helpin you loocate a criminal defense attorney quickly.
If you have questions about the application of the law in a particular case, consult a criminal defense lawyer. The law is constantly changing.

The criminal justice system is evolving with time. Gone are the days when it simply focused on long prison sentences as the only way to deal with crime. Public opinion is changing and so should the criminal justice system. There is more emphasis on attacking underlying causes and not just surface issues. More and more experts agree that crime prevention is the way to go in this situation. They assert that prison sentences, especially for non-violent offenders, only deal with the problem temporarily. They also believe that crime prevention should be the centrepiece of the criminal justice system. (Pfeiffer, p 55, 2003)
Crime prevention should be the focus of the criminal justice system because it has overwhelming public support
A Research conducted by the Heart Research Associates Inc. on the perception of the public on crime prevention found that majority of the people believed in a more pro-active rather than reactive approach. This research was conducted in the year 2002. But ten years ago, when the public was asked about what they thought about crime prevention, 42% said the criminal justice system should focus on punitive action while 48% supported crime prevention. These statistics have changed drastically with time. In 2002, when a similar research was conducted by the same research company, it was found that 65% of the public believe in dealing with root causes while 32% wanted more severe measures to take precedence in the criminal justice system. The survey also indicated the following preferences.

the Criminal Justice System; Journal for Open Society Institute
Crime prevention deals with root causes
It should be noted that most of the time, there are cases in which people break the law because they have no where else to turn to. Such people normally come from deteriorating neighbourhoods. They feel that there is not much that can be done about their situation and they opt to choose crime as their only means for survival. Most of these criminals normally have very low educational backgrounds. Consequently, their options in the formal employment sector are quite limited. They need to earn a source of livelihood and still have to meet their daily needs. However, the public only offers them temporary jobs that do not pay as much. Some individuals may feel the need to deal with this lack of necessities through crime. Overly, the underlying problem is education, if the government was to invest in education of such criminals then there would be no need to commit crimes and all the other issues will fall into place. (Maguire, p 207-265, 2000)
Most criminals commit their crimes because their neighbourhoods make it easy for them to do so. In most Cities, there are certain localities that have been ignored by the governing authorities of the day to such an extent that their buildings and other infrastructural facilities are simply deplorable. It is therefore easier for criminals to break into such systems and take what they would want without to much struggle. If some investments had been made into those neighbourhoods, then there would be better facilities and better security for its residents thus discouraging crime.
Certain criminals do not have a sense of moral values. Their environment has served a fertile ground for moral deterioration. They see no benefit in caring about what other people around them may feel as a result of their actions. Consequently, most of these criminals end up committing their crimes because they do not know what is expected from them from society. Crime prevention as a strategy for crime prevention could deal with this by targeting youth offenders. Most of them could be placed in community prevention centres where they could get taught a number of societal norms. (Kenney, p23, 1998)
Many of the neighbourhoods that some of these youth come from are usually associated with low levels of family support. Some offenders may be tempted to commit crimes because they feel that they have nothing to loose. They do not feel loved and cared for and consequently have low self esteem. According to them, crime is a way of letting out some of their pent up anger and frustrations. It should be possible to prevent crimes of this nature if youth were targeted. The reason why it is useful to target the youth is because they are not yet that far gone; they are still at a point when they can be moulded and transformed. At their age, they have not hardened already. Such youth can be taught fundamental truths in and their psychological problems can be addressed adequately in community centres.
Since the issue of employment contributes to many criminal cases, crime prevention strategies can deal with that issue and eliminate the need to commit crimes due to that reason. This can be achieved through the process of instilling potential offenders with job skills. Consequently, such people will have no need to resort to crime as a means of earning a living since they have other alternatives available
Failure in past approaches
Crime prevention should take precedence within the criminal justice system because the punitive approach has failed. Most psychologists argue that when criminals are simply arrested and taken into prisons for a certain period of time, they may not feel the need to reform. They actually claim that this serves to reinforce certain criminal activities. This is because they get to interact with fellow criminal and even learn more tricks to the trade and by the time they leave their prison cells, they are worse off than when they came in. What this means is that the criminal justice system is just going around in circles; criminals commit crimes, stay in prison, then go back to where they started from. When criminals go back to their neighbourhood, the very reason why they committed their crimes in the first place still exists. They will still be faced with family problems, lack of employment and other social evils. These circumstances will propel them into crime and they will end up going back to prison. This is the reason why drug related cases still continue. Psychologists believe that criminals perform criminal behaviour because of these social pressures and they need to be addressed if the criminal justice system hopes to be effective in the future. The ultimate solution would therefore be crime prevention. (Austin, p 34, 2001)
Crime prevention would be quite favourable in drug related cases instead of punitive actions. For example, those caught should be placed in mandatory drug treatment centres. They could also be subjected to community service instead of locking them up in prison cells. There was some sort of disparity in the way the criminal justice system has been handling perpetrators. A person who has committed a burglary and another who has been caught using drugs are given more or less the same treatment through prison sentencing. This is not a fair or effective way of going about the crime problem.
It should also be noted that there may be certain individuals who lack the ability to move on with their lives because the way the criminal justice system has been in the past is that it condemns and segregates offenders. For expel, when one has been convicted to serve a prison term and they complete their term, they are not allowed to drive a car even if they have a driving licence. Besides this, they are not allowed to own houses or get certain jobs. What this does is that it frustrates them the more. Such individuals have no room to have fresh start because most of them lack public goodwill. What this does is that it encourages them to continue with a life of crime because they feel that society is already biased towards them. One can therefore conclude that the criminal justice system has not been very effective in the process of dealing with future crime incidences. Crime prevention is the only alternative to this endless cycle of crime. (Oxford Handbook of Criminology, p13, 2003)
Nipping crime at the bud
Many experts have argued that crime prevention will be more successful since most hard core criminals started out as youthful vandals who were shown the right direction. Some people have argued that the countries that have implemented crime prevention strategies have been very effective in crime stoppage. A case in point is the battle against alcohol and drug abuse in Sweden. The campaign was started by psychologist and criminologist Nils Bejerot. He believed that the drug control system used in Sweden before his reforms was quite inadequate. He asserted that if the new carriers of the drug taking habit were dealt with before hand, then there would be chances of preventing them from becoming ambassadors for the drug taking problem. He conducted an experiment in the year 1965 at Stockholm.
This psychiatrist suggested that those who had been caught by police using small amounts of drugs should be placed in treatment program that is mandatory in nature. This would go a long way in ensuring that all the future cases of drug dealing were taken care of. In line with the program, local authorities should conduct follow ups to ensure that those particular candidates stay committed to the prevention program. This has gone a long way in eliminating drug abuse cases in Sweden. Statistics testify to the effectiveness of this strategy. In Sweden only one in 1,400 may be imprisoned for possession of illegal drugs. This is such an achievement given the fact that other countries like the United States arrest about one in very 136 people for the possession of illegal drugs. It was also found that due to crime prevention in Sweden, there are much fewer chances of getting students with drugs in comparison to the seventies. Statistics have also shown that in Sweden there are less chances of drug abuse than in the entire continent of Europe. This also applies to cases of drug abuse recently and five years ago. Their crime prevention strategy has received more enforcement from the criminal justice system over the past years ago and this corresponds to less cases. Sweden does not apply its drug policy to new offenders only, it also has a follow up program for convicted offenders.
Accidents that occur due to alcohol abuse or drunk driving are quite common in countries that have not implemented certain crime prevention strategies. Local authorities should go out of their way to ensure that crimes resulting from alcohol intake are eliminated. This can be achieved by introduction of breath-testers. Drivers who exceed allowable limits should be prevented from driving by placing them into rehabilitation centres. Such a proactive approach will ensure that there will be limited cases in the future. (Cox & Wade, p 105, 1998)
Gang violence can also be prevented through the use of the overall community. The police can work hand in hand with local residents to monitor the activities of these gangs and these collaborative efforts will help police during the prevention of such kinds of offences.
There should be more emphasis on the youth in order to ensure that future crimes are not committed. Crime prevention efforts need to be directed to the youth because they account for about twenty percent of all the cases reported to the police. It was also found that those who happened to be caught once were less likely to get caught again. However, there are cases of persistent offenders that would be arrested more than once. A research conducted among these repeat offenders found that there were certain characteristics common to most of these offenders. They are as follows;
The research also identified the fact that these behavioural traits could be prevented by a strategy called early intervention. Most of these youth had potential o become worse but with the right approach more could be done to ensure that this did not continue again. Crime prevention among the youth can be made in such a way that there are coordinated efforts towards dealing with youth offenders. First of all, there can be creation of bodies to coordinate work done towards these efforts. On top of this, there should be greater involvement of other stakeholders. The police should cooperate with the departments of children and youth affairs.
Early intervention needs to be conducted in cases where families seem particularly vulnerable to future crimes. Such families are normally characterised by the traits that were listed above. These are efforts that can be conducted by the policing unit in conjunction with other local authorities. However, there may be instances when some youth are at higher risks than others. Those at higher risks need to be placed under closer and more severe programs.
Prevention of crime needs to be done through the involvement of families too. In case youth offenders have been caught, their family members need to be consulted on what they feel could be the best methods to use when tackling their child. This can be achieved through the conduction of conferences that involve law enforcement officers, social workers and the parents. This will help in unveiling some of the underlying problems and will also help in the customisation of solutions to suite specific cases. (Sherman, p 54, 1997)
Crime prevention should take the greatest precedence in the criminal justice system because it has overwhelming public support. A survey asking people what the law enforcement authorities need to prioritise indicated that there was a need to place more emphasis on crime prevention rather than other strategies. The second reason why crime prevention should take up priority in the criminal justice system is the fact that most crimes are committed as a result of certain social problems. Crime prevention identifies those problems and deals with them thereby eliminating future cases of crime. It should also be noted that past systems have not been effective in the criminal justice system. They have only enforced criminal behaviour; crime prevention is a better approach because it tackles the problem from the inside out. Lastly, countries that have prioritised crime prevention have shown statistically, that this is an effective method; their crime rates have reduced. With all this backing, crime prevention should be made top priority.

You’ve just met someone fresh, or you’ve just found out that your son or daughter is going to get married to someone that you don’t know very well. Maybe you need to hire a carer for your brood, or you have a new boarder for a house that you own. These individuals all appear great, but you can never know for sure what lies under the surface. It’s time for you to check out arrest records public and free information that is available to you.
Knowing if this new character in your life is doing nicely is significant. Sad as it might be, there are folks who may not have such a wonderful past and that might make a big difference to you. You might imagine that it’s not feasible to get background information on others. It is, and it’s not difficult either. You can find out about nearly anyone’s arrest records - and they can seek and find out if you have an arrest record, too - for free. Click here to check warrants for arrest

In most cases, if someone has been arrested for something, whether it’s a serious offense or not, the record of that arrest is open for you and anybody else to view. If you are acquainted with where to look for free public arrest records, they can turn out to be a massive help when you’re trying to make valuable personal and business decisions. Arrest records public and free can come from many different sources.
Your district police department can provide you with arrest records, and so can your county and state police organizations, as well as other law enforcement agencies. Each law enforcement agency will have a different system for you to search out arrest records, but because these records are public, you do have a right to use to them.
Another nice place to look for free public arrest records is by using services that concentrate on providing this sort of information to you. You can access arrest records, court records, employment and property ownership records, and many other types of information.
A company that specializes in searching for and providing you with this sort of information will use computer and Internet technology to explore huge databases that can contain information on practically anyone you want to know about.

There seems to be a growing culture amongst law enforcement agencies to collect DNA from everyone that they can. This is being made possible in more and more areas by laws which allow DNA to be taken and stored from anyone who gets arrested. If you think that you might have an active arrest warrant somewhere then you would be wise to check and if you have one get it dealt with as soon as you can. If you don’t get arrested then you won’t be forced to donate your DNA.
“Why is this such a big deal?” I hear you ask. Isn’t it a good thing that DNA information is available to the police so that they can identify more suspects in crimes? On the face of it you would be right. Using DNA matching techniques investigators are able to eliminate suspects where the DNA does not match. They can also search the ever growing database of DNA samples to find suspects that would otherwise go undetected even when decades have passed since the crime was committed.
When used responsibly by professional investigators, DNA matching can be a very powerful ally to law enforcement but can you trust this kind of technological power to the people who run our justice systems? A recent case in the UK would suggest that you can not. A man was convicted for a rape 16 years before when the only real evidence presented was a DNA match. While the DNA made the defendant a suspect it certainly did not prove guilt and yet the jury saw fit to convict.
So my advice is to go out of your way to avoid getting yourself arrested. One way to help you do this and keep your DNA to yourself is to regularly check your warrants for arrest and deal with them before the police get around to acting on it.

Check out the street before you move in
Getting to know the people who live in your street can be a very rewarding thing to do. You can find friends, build a community relationship and perhaps even more important, find out who you should stay away from.
If you are about to move into an area or you are just thinking about purchasing a property then it would be a very good idea to check out the neighborhood and do a little background checking on the people who live in the street. Isn’t it just as important to choose who you want to live close to as it is to choose a location?
How do I find who lives on a street
There is still the old fashioned way of finding out who lives in your street. Get out there and knock on doors. It is still arguably the best way to do it because not only do you find out who your neighbors are, you can strike up a relationship with them at the same time. Just be prepared for it to take some time.
Not very long ago you wouldn’t have had any choice. You had to go and meet people if you wanted to learn who they are. You no longer have to do that if you don’t want to. You can use a brand new invention called the Internet instead. Is there anything that you can’t do on the Internet today? You can do it anytime from anywhere and no one even needs to know. This makes it easy to find out who lives in the area before you even visit the place.
Information you can get from a public records background check often includes a list of possible neighbors for the person you are looking up. By doing background checks on all the neighbors that you find and all the neighbors that are listed with those neighbors, you can quickly put together a list of names of people who live on your street.
The article How Do I Find Who Lives On A Street will show you exactly how you can use a public records web site to find people living in your street.
Do you background check the people that you come in contact with? You should. Especially if you are dating or having them do work for you or trusting them in some other way. Don’t be put off by thinking that background investigations have to be expensive either. I want to tell you how you can do unlimited absolutely free background checks on as many people as you want to.
If you don’t check what someone tells you or you take them at face value then you can never be sure that they are worthy of your trust. Most people are trustworthy of course but they are not the ones that you need to worry about. A small number of people will have intent to rip you off in some way so it’s a good idea to take some precautions.
The simplest precaution you can take is to do an online background check on them to check for criminal records, arrest warrants, sex offenders, bankruptcies and generally check out their story. I used to recommend a Court records web site for doing such background investigations. It was and still is a very fast, efficient and confidential service that delivers on it’s promise.
So why don’t I use that site anymore? Well each direct search that you do costs a small amount of money which is great, so long as you don’t have many searches to do. The trouble is, I generally end up doing more searches than I planned to. By the time I’ve made a few mistakes with peoples names and got sidetracked looking up stuff on relatives and neighbors etc. all the small fees have added up to a sizeable amount.
These days I think that you should be considering a membership site for your investigations. The site I now recommend is called Inteligator. It gives you practically the same facilities as the pay per search site but it can work out a lot cheaper. It costs you less because once you have subscribed you can do absolutely free background checks.
You can do an unlimited number of free background searches and if you take advantage of the very low cost trial offer, I think that it’s less than 5 bucks, it can be a very cost effective solution. In fact you can’t afford not to do it. It’s a very small price to pay for peace of mind. Click here to try out Inteligator - Do it now.
For more information on how Inteligator works see this review where I compare the 2 web sites Absolutely Free Background Checks - Court Records or Inteligator
Has your marriage gone stale? Has the magic of the early days of your relationship all but disappeared? You are not alone - This happens to almost every couple that have a relationship. It’s normal human behaviour and you have no reason to think that there is anything wrong with you or your wife. Most people never realize this and the relationship often ends in divorce or they stay together unhappily ever after. It doesn’t have to be this way. Getting your wife to fall in love with you again is not impossible if you follow some good advice.
In the beginning of most, if not all relationships, everything is fresh and exciting. You go on dates and do new and interesting things together. You have fun together. This period generally lasts a few weeks or months but rarely much longer. After a while you become used to each other and you start taking your wife for granted. This leads to boredom and discontent with life. You need to recapture the excitement of the early days if you’re going to turn things around.
How can she love me again? Have fun and find out
The solution to the problem of how to get my wife to love me again seems obvious doesn’t it? You need to start having fun together again like you did at the beginning but don’t rush into anything. Take it easy and start to find things that you can organize for the two of you to do together again. If you enjoyed eating out then do it. If you liked going to the cinema together then start going again. Make a point of spending at least one night a week doing things that you both enjoy and make a date of it, just like when you started out.
Making your wife want you again is something that will take time and you will have to work at it if you are going to achieve your aim. When you’ve gotten to the point where she’s fallen for you again you must be careful not to slip back into your old ways or you will just drift apart again. Keep your relationship alive and exciting and never take your wife for granted.
Warrants for arrest are something that you don’t want but sometimes it’s difficult to avoid getting one. When you do get a warrant it’s in your interest to get something done about it as soon as possible so you need to do arrest warrants searches regularly. If you do an arrest warrant check on yourself at least once a month then you should have time to deal with any that crop up before you get arrested.
If your warrant search doesn’t turn up any active results then you will have the peace of mind that will let you sleep easy. Remember that even the most law abiding people can accidentally commit a motoring offence or even get their identity stolen by a criminal who goes on a crime-spree in your name.
The best way to stay on top of this problem is to subscribe to a public records background service. By paying a monthly membership fee you can do as many free arrest warrant searches as you want. You can do them any time you want and on any one you want.
There are plenty of web sites where you can go to get a background check done on someone and generally this will include information about any criminal record that they might have. But what do you actually get when you join one of these sites? How can you find out what shows up on a criminal background check?
The web site that I’ve been using gathers public records from hundreds of different sources including court records, arrest records, criminal records, prison records and more. You don’t just get someone’s criminal record when you do a criminal background check, you get a whole lot more on top.
To make it easier for you to see what information you might be able to get I’ve secretly copied a bunch of sample background check reports from the Court Records web site. They show you the kinds of reports that you can expect to get before you decide to give the site a try. Click here to see the sample reports.
Now don’t go expecting that all of the information in the samples will be available for the person you are checking out. It just isn’t possible to show everything about everyone but I can say that I was very pleased with the information that I found and some of it came as a bit of a surprise. Give it a try - you might get a surprise too.
Do you have any outstanding arrest warrants? Find out right now
The police don’t have to prove that you’ve committed a crime - they only have to think that you have before applying for an arrest warrant from a Judge. The judge will want to see some evidence to support the police suspicions but that’s all. Most people think that you must do something illegal before you get an arrest warrant but that’s not strictly true. The police could come for you at any time, whether or not you’re a criminal. Click here for an easy way to check for arrest warrants.
Have you forgotten to go to court when you should have done? Did you forget to send proof that you did that community service to the court? If you have then the court may have issued a bench warrant for your arrest. If you have any kind of outstanding active warrant then the police will be after you sooner or later.
If you don’t know what a Bench Warrant is then read this: What Is An Arrest Warrant?
Don’t ignore an arrest warrant
If the cops have to come and arrest you then your record will show that the police had to chase you down to serve the warrant on you. this won’t look good for you when you get to court. The judge is human after all so he or she will be influenced by the fact that you didn’t come into court voluntarily. You can’t afford to ignore an arrest warrant even if you don’t know that you have one.
It’s not as uncommon as you might think for there to be warrants that you don’t know about. It happens quite a lot. Did you fail to pay a fine or did you shoot through a speed trap? Perhaps you’ve gotten your identity stolen and someone has been committed some crimes for you. Just think about that for a moment, it is possible to get arrested for something someone else did while they were impersonating you.
It’s so much better if you give yourself up instead of waiting to get arrested
What do you think that the judge will think? Will he or she be inclined to treat you better if your record shows that you voluntarily handed yourself in as soon as you found out that you had an arrest warrant? I’m betting that this would be true even with the most impartial judges. It’s just human nature after all.
Check yourself out for active arrest warrants, engage a lawyer and give yourself up as soon as possible if you have one.
Find out if you have warrants of arrest in less than 10 minutes
There is a very simple and effective way to check for warrants. You can now use an online web site that specializes in public records. It collects and organizes billions of records from many different databases. You can search for your own arrest warrants or warrants on anyone else you might want to check out.
Don’t ever ask a cop if there’s an arrest warrant out on you
If a police officer finds a warrant of arrest for you then he is likely arrest you right there. The last thing you want to do if you think that you might have a warrant, is to ask a cop to look it up for you. If you get arrested then you’ve blown what chance you might have had to do something about it before you get arrested.
Perhaps you forgot to pay a fine? Did you even know that you had a fine? Have you been driving too fast and picked up a ticket? You might have forgotten to go to court or failed to do some community service. You might have had your identity stolen and someone else has committed a crime while impersonating you.
Are you a victim of criminal identity theft?
If someone robs you of your identity it’s called identity theft. If someone steals your identity and then commits a crime pretending to be you then it’s called criminal identity theft. If this has happened to you then you could have arrest warrants in states all over the country for offences you didn’t commit and you won’t have any idea that they even exist. This is not a good place to be in and it’s completely out of your control.
Getting your identity stolen is a terrible thing to happen to you. Victims will tell you that the longer it goes unnoticed then the worse your experience will be. Criminal identity thieves can suck your savings dry, obtain documents and commit many crimes in your name without you knowing a thing unless you’re constantly on the look out for signs that something might be wrong. Checking for any arrest warrants is one thing that you can do to help discover that your identity has been stolen.
Enquire at courthouses
If you have an idea of where your warrants might have been issued then you can go to the courthouse and enquire about them. If you have no idea where the warrants could be then you have a problem because you won’t know which courthouse to go to. You can’t try them all can you? If you’ve had your identity stolen then you might have warrants all over the place.
Why not use an online public records database instead
Luckily there are specialist web sites on the Internet that are very good at finding background information such as active arrest warrants. They get their data from thousands of different public and private records databases and then make them all available to you at the click of a button. It doesn’t come any easier than this.

The fatal flaw with advice that you get from the average marriage guidance councilor is that it involves a lot of effort from both you and your partner. This would be ok if you both want to fix the relationship and stop your break up but what if your partner isn’t interested in trying to save your marriage? You’re not likely to get very good results if this is the case but what if there was a way to get your ex back even if your your spouse or partner doesn’t want to come back?
New relationships are great to start with aren’t they?
Relationships can be amazing to start with. You were both fresh and alive to each other and you were discovering how much fun you can have together. But after a time, you get too comfortable with each other and if you don’t keep up the excitement and the interest levels high then there’s a danger that you can grow apart. Sooner or later you or your partner decides that you’ve had enough and walks.
Please don’t make the same mistake that most people make
When your partner walks it’s like a wake up call. You realize what’s happened, realize that it’s been happening for months or even years without you even noticing what was going on. Panic takes over at the thought that you are losing your loved one and the pleading starts. You pour out your heart and promise to change.
Stop right there because pleading won’t solve anything
Pleading with your partner is the last thing you should do. Your partner won’t change her mind if you do that, you’ll just make things worse. Don’t make any rash promises that you can’t keep because she won’t believe you anyway. It’s hard I know but you must step back from the situation and begin to get on with your own life. Showing her that you are strong enough to live without her will actually draw her closer to you. It’s a strange concept I know but it’s true.
Get yourself a life - you’ll be surprised at what happens
When my long-standing relationship was going pear shaped some time ago we had just drifted apart and I’d tried really hard for a long time to stop my partner from moving out. Nothing I did worked and I finally gave up when I realized that I was being stupid. I’d be much better off finding a new life than trying to hold on to one that was just going to go nowhere.
I had the surprise of my life at what happened next. I stopped pleading with her and I told her that I’d accepted that it was over and that we should break up. I thought that was what she wanted but perhaps I was wrong? Suddenly it was me who was being pleaded with. I was the one breaking up the relationship not her and she wanted to get it back. Can you believe it?
Is There Hope To Save A Marriage? Yes you bet there is…
I’m sorry to say that things had gone too far for me by this point and my ex’s screams just pushed me further away. I can’t help but wonder what might have happened had I been aware of this secret a lot earlier. Would we sill be together and happily married? If you understand this secret of human relationships you could stop your divorce and save your marriage.
It wasn’t until I discovered a web site that lets you do absolutely free background checks that I realized how much fun it can be finding information about people. I joined this web site recently and I’ve been looking up all my old friends that I haven’t seen for years. That was great - you can actually find people with this site but you don’t have to stop there.
You won’t be able to resist doing background checks and criminal records checks on all of your neighbors just to make sure that they are all that you think they are. You would be doing yourself a disservice if you didn’t check out people that you hire to do work for you and of course, you absolutely must do a full background check on all of your dates. How will you ever know that they are telling you the truth otherwise. They could be married already.
Why don’t you try out some free background searches right now and see for yourself how absorbing it can be to have so much information at your fingertips. As soon as you’ve paid the small subscription you will be able to do an unlimited number of background checks and free public records searches for no extra cost.
If you don’t need the flexibility of unlimited free searches you might want to check out this article that compares two great investigation web sites. It might change your mind when you read it.
Using the immense power of Cyberspace to find people and birthdays
You don’t mean to forget people - it just happens. It happens to you, it happens to me, it happens to everyone. Like all of us you have people that you once loved and cared for who are no longer part of your life even though you promised that you would never lose touch.
Where are they now you might ask? Years later you start to wish that you had kept in touch. If only you had made a point of making sure you always had their address or phone number even if you never used it. Well don’t worry because technology has come to your rescue. Locating someone from the past like this would have been very difficult a few years ago but now with the Internet and some well developed databases you can find your old friends more often than not. The secret to how to find people can be found in some very sophisticated and large public records databases.
Perhaps you haven’t lost touch completely with someone but you want to make contact again after a long time of silence. Sending them a gift on their birthday is a perfect way to do this but you need to know when their birthdate is if this is what you are going to do. The public records databases can help you with this too - find someone’s data of birth from a background check You may never have to admit to forgetting a birthday again.
The Internet is awesome and it’s getting more powerful every single day
Things that would have seemed impossible only a short time ago are being made routine by advances in Internet technology and one of the more impressive developments has been to put free public records within your reach. You are now able to do background searches on people and find out all kinds of stuff such as their address, phone numbers, birth dates, married status, criminal records, arrest warrants and other background information. You can even find out who their neighbors are.
If you want to find someone from your past or simply find out a birth date for someone that you see all the time then all you have to do is put their name into a box on the right web site and see what information you can find.
Staying together with your spouse for the sake of the children or just in the hope that your relationship gets better, rarely works if you’re trying to save your marriage and avoid divorce. Sooner or later you will end up splitting up so is there another way that might be more effective?
Everyone tells you that you should talk to your partner, listen to what they are telling you then change your behaviour to put right all of your faults. If both of you really work at doing this then your marriage will be solved right? Well probably not.
What if your spouse doesn’t want to save your marriage?
Conventional advice is only likely to work if both you and your partner really want to avoid divorce. Unfortunately this isn’t often the case. More often than not one of you wants to save the relationship but the other one just wants to get out as soon as they can. You can’t hope to work together towards a reconciliation under these circumstances because it simply won’t work.
Pleading and promising to change isn’t going to work either because this just makes you look weak and needy and quite frankly, pathetic. All you will succeed in doing is pushing your partner away quicker than if you did nothing.
How to save your marriage by having a good time
Instead of trying to push yourself onto your partner and killing your relationship by smothering it you could try separation instead. At first sight this sounds like an odd thing to do. How do you end up staying together by separating? Well believe it or not it can work and it might save your marriage even if your spouse doesn’t want it to.
Separating does two things. Straight away your partner will start to realize exactly what she or he will be missing if your relationship ends. If you’ve always been a loving partner and good provider then these qualities in you will be missed immediately. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side is it?
When your spouse sees you having a good time without her she may start to remember why you got together in the first place. This is where you have to concentrate on saving your marriage by just being yourself away from you spouse and make sure that she knows what you’re doing. The more she sees you enjoying yourself and not needing her the more attractive you will become to her. You might even find that your spouse starts trying to save your marriage all by herself, even if she didn’t want to in the first place.
You don’t have to move out
You don’t actually need to be apart physically to have a separation. In fact it helps if you don’t because it will be easier for your spouse to see you being yourself. Tell your partner that you know that she wants a divorce and that you are going to start living your life the way you want to. Let her see you coming home late from the office and starting to date new people. You can even discuss your dates with her and ask her advice on how you can make a good impression. This is sure to get her thinking.
The results from this strategy might surprise you. Lets face it, your marriage was going to end in divorce anyway right, so what have you got to lose? By showing your partner that you don’t need them you will be making yourself more attractive to them and maybe they will start to reconsider what it is that they really want.
There are many ways that you can find out whether you have an arrest warrant including asking a police officer. That is if you don’t mind getting arrested on the spot when the officer finds one. You can go and ask at the courthouse but you might have a warrant somewhere else. You can’t visit them all can you? The easiest and quickest way to search for your warrants for arrest is to use an online public records database.

The Inteligator web site is perfect for this because you don’t have to pay for each and every warrant search you do. Instead you pay a small monthly fee which allows you to do as many arrest warrant searches, background checks, criminal records checks and other searches as you want to. You can check out as many people as you want to as often as you want to.

You can use the same databases as used by law enforcement agencies
Did you know that you are now able to use the same databases that are used by law enforcement agencies to find out information about people? Yes it’s true, you can use them to look up background information on almost anyone you want. If you want to learn how to find out if someone is married then read on…
First I’ll tell you how you can tell if you’re being lied to by someone about their married status, then I’ll give you a fast and efficient way of finding out if they are married.
First thing to do is ask if they are married
This is a perfectly reasonable question so don’t be afraid to ask it. If the person is being honest with you then they won’t hesitate to answer. If they are your new boyfriend or girlfriend then it’s very important that you get them to answer the question.
You should ask them as many questions as you can think of to get a picture of who they are, where they came from and what their background is.
Whenever you meet or chat on the phone or instant messenger or email you can ask more questions. If you listen carefully to the answers then over a period of time, you will build a picture of your new friend or potential partner. If you keep this up for a few weeks then you will be in a very good position to tell if you’re being lied to or not.
You see it’s very difficult to keep up a lie over a long period of time. If at any time you get the feeling that what your boyfriend or girlfriend is telling you doesn’t match with something they told you previously then you may have been lied to.
If someone can lie to you about anything then they may have lied to you about being married. Even if they didn’t lie about their married status you still can’t trust them. You only have to detect one lie and that’s it - you can’t trust anything they say. Consider walking away if this happens.
How to find out if someone is married the easy way
If you suspect that your new lover is lying to you about not being married or if you can’t wait for them to slip up in conversation then why don’t you find out if they’re married the easy way.
The Internet makes it so easy for you to search for background information including marriage records. You can search for information on just about anyone you want anytime you want. You can do it in just a few short minutes and you don’t even have to leave your home to do it.
