Courts Will Not Notify You by Text, Phone or Email of an Outstanding Warrant

Neither our local courts nor our Federal Courts will notify you by text or email of an outstanding warrant. If a warrant has been issued for your arrest, you may be notified by U.S mail and given the opportunity to turn yourself in to the jurisdiction holding the warrant. At no time will you be asked to wire money, or pay a bond or fine through the internet. If you should get a call, text or email from someone representing themselves as an officer, know that no police department will ever contact you to pay a fine over the phone or through western union.


Should you receive an email or text advising you that you have a warrant, DO NOT open the email and NEVER respond to any email or text questions. If you are uncomfortable about the correspondence and think you may have an outstanding warrant, contact the police or court agency directly to clear up matters.


It is easy to check by using the case search on our website.  

If you do find that you have an outstanding warrant you can:

  • Use our Online Warrant Review Application
  • Call the court for Walk-in Times
  • Post a bond if one has been set on your case at any of our 14A locations
  • Turn yourself into the Washtenaw County Jail
