When an individual on whose name an arrest warrant has been issued has not been arrested by law enforcement officers, then the arrest warrant on that individuals name becomes an outstanding arrest warrant in some time. Multiple reasons can cause a NC active warrant to change into an outstanding warrant. Sometimes when the suspect realizes of the warrant issued on his or her name, he or she may try to hide from the police in an attempt to avoid getting arrested. While this is not successful most of the times, at times the suspect does get smarter and successfully avoids getting arrested. In such a scenario the active warrant would turn into an outstanding warrant.

Warrants turn outstanding even the police is too busy serving high priority warrants and do not get time to serve the low priority ones. And in such cases sometimes even the person on whose name the warrant has been issued also would not know that a warrant has been issued, therefore due to lack of initiative from the police’s side and from the person who should be arrested, the active warrant turns into an outstanding warrant over a period of time.

A warrant in North Carolina is issued after a sitting judge has been provided with sufficient proof for the requirement of an arrest warrant. Once the reason is accurately determined by the judge, he or she will issue the warrant. A police official is typically assigned the case, who will attempt to arrest the suspect.

If you think that there might be an arrest warrant on your name, then you can get this checked by getting in touch with the local sheriffs office. A warrant will not be removed from files, till the person on the warrant is arrested or is no more.

If you have a warrant on your name, then getting it settled should be your number one priority. Warrants will show up if a background check is done, therefore it can reflect poorly on you when you apply for a job and a background check is done on you. You could even get arrested when stopped for a routine check by a law enforcement officer. Warrants of low priority, like the ones for the non payment of the traffic bill can be settled with the payment of a nominal fee. Paying the fee is certainly a better option than getting arrested.

In order to settle a warrant you will need to visit your local sheriffs office, this could directly mean getting arrested but will ultimately lead to the settlement of the warrant. At this point you can certainly get the help of a lawyer, who will be better equipped to protect you legally.
