    Apr 19, 2017

    The Georgia Superior court clerks' cooperative authority's website provides the general public with a free search. The lookup is based on a name search. The search includes separate instructions regarding how to enter individuals' name, which means the search is not always an individual, as opposed to an entity. Searching the owners' names can help with a more comprehensive search. You can also conduct a business entity search through the Office of the Georgia Secretary of State, corporation division and see the listed officers' names, which is also an open public search.

    The case may still be available at the courthouse. You can check by going there, I'm not sure how in depth online filing searches will be. You will need to dig it up like an investigator, if there's no filing at the courthouse, you can request arrest report directly from the police department, considering you know which department made the arrest.

  • Question: How to find out if you have a warrant supeona etc
    By mema
    Jun 18, 2016

    Through searching courts, these (Warrant Supeona Etc) are generally issued by judges. There are certain police departments which will show warrants on one of their webpages, but they tend to be issued by the judges. These records are mostly on the county level, since most criminal cases arise from county court. Georgia's state website has a page titled "Learning about Warrants", it says what you can do and your right when it comes to requesting warrant information.

  • Question: How do I find out if my babies father is in jail?
    By Katie
    Mar 08, 2016

    There are different inmate searches, at various levels, state or more local such as counties. The Georgia department of corrections is a state prison and of inmates sentenced to serve time in one of their institutions, while the county jails and their inmates can be searched within county law enforcement. If you've been arrested, lets say somewhere in Atlanta, you can openly search and check the Fulton county sheriff's online inmate/in custody list. Hard to say where without knowing location of the arrest.
