    The details for the "Internet Criminal History Access Tool (ICHAT)" (if that's the one that was used) can be accessed with the "Michigan Criminal Records" link above. That search is conducted by the Michigan state patrol, and only informs about their own service, not what other services do.

    What do you already know, first, last and full middle name? Past residences? Date of death? Any known relatives? Without offering any personal information, you can mention what you have, even information you don't believe is helpful. There are too many places, even the free ones, where you can just simply type in the name and see, but there are too many of them, so you will need to narrow it down by location. The location can then give you names of relatives to expand your search.

    Depends on where you need to look, for Wayne County, their sheriff department has an open public search of warrants, Lansing and Midland release a list (as opposed to a data search form). If you are not sure, try as many of the public ones as possible. Active warrants or outstanding warrants (they basically mean the same thing) are issued by the courts/judges, and they have a copy of it also.

    Check the laws on your own, specially when they're such a drastic difference from state to state. Michigan Seller Disclosure Act 92 of 1993 addresses disclosure of the property's physical condition. There are some laws that covers real estate agents, and other types transfers such as probate and others do not fall under the same statutes.

    You will need to know where the arrest occurred unless it was by the Michigan state police. Then, each county of city police department will have a process for the public to request a police arrest report.

    There are sites that have been popping up showing arrests and mug shots online. They look similar to police arrest logs or booking lists, but they're not under the control of law enforcement. Law enforcement is generally the source of the information, published by their individual websites, so they will have the most up to date information. If you already know the area, you can directly go to the department which made the arrest and check their jail/inmate page. There are 83 counties in Michigan, if you don't know the area, you can do a people search to narrow the area. You have to keep in mind that searching for address finds only that, which tell you where the person lived, not where they were arrested. Checking all sources is good, as long as you are aware of how current the information is, and not to unknowingly rely on a single site, specially private sites that aren't updated or government county/city sites that are limited to their area.

    Arrest records, more commonly known as arrest reports are requested by persons other than law enforcement regularly. Common requestors are defense attorneys, prosecutors' offices, the individual arrested and others that qualify by being related to the arrest/case/report. There are policies imposed by departments that can keep some from requesting arrest reports. you can see these requirements on the individual police department's websites. An arrest report is a document produced by the arresting officer. A record of arrest can be found in many places such as databases that show persons currently in jail. These are inmate searches, also names jail lists, arrest logs and other similar terms.

    Arrest records are generally provided by the arresting police or sheriffs department. The state of Michigan’s state police provides background checks which uses a repository of arrests, charges and convictions involving serious crimes. There are other ways to look up recently arrested persons by check individual agencies throughout the state. Arrestee searches are found under terms such as inmates, jail, booking log, prison, custody and offender. These lists can be found within police/sheriff department webpages. If anyone has used the state police’s criminal history records search, please share with others about the satisfaction of the results, accuracy and whether it was worth the cost.

    With common names, such as the one mentioned, searching becomes more difficult when compared to more unique names. Searches with common names can be helped with additional information such as past city of residence, date of birth or approximate and small details. Also, with a name that seems shortened, it would be best to mention whether that is actually the full legal name or it is a nickname which would not show up in public records. Any information can be helpful, even when they seem to be useless at the time.

    The more information that is detailed, the better the search can be conducted and be successful. Even when there is little information, small factors such as the area where any trace can be found or mentioned as a possibility of accuracy should be mentioned. Many public records are free to search, however, takes work to look in the many different places where that open information can be found. Approximate age is very helpful, many free sites offer approximate ages.

    Juvenile records are not under the same guidelines as records of persons 18 and over. Therefore the fact that the subject can be either, the answer would be different. Other factors which matter are whether it is criminal or civil, the court’s venue or area or the trial, was there a trial, was there legal counsel, a guardian, public defender or private practice attorney representing. There are many bits and pieces of information which are greatly helpful that do not disclose personal information.
