    Hello Rae. If you recall the county where the police report would have been filed, you could start there. As the victim, you should be able to access that file.

    Texas is one of the easier states where marriage records can be obtained by the public. The Texas Health and Human services provides a webpage where you can request marriage, also divorce records, online or by mail. There's also a downloadable online index of divorces which is open to the public. Look for "How to Purchase a Birth, Death, Marriage License Application, and Report of Divorce Index" on the left menu.

    By Angela

    The court where the criminal cases were heard would have the case file, unless it's sealed by a judge. You can either go to the court house in person, or have an attorney service (similar to a delivery service which specializes in court documents) do it for you. There are other options with private services and investigators.

    By Kerri
    Mar 05, 2017

    You can look up warrants in certain County Sheriff's warrant search pages, ie Travis, Orange county or cities such as Vidor. Many warrants are county level, so there are some which will be easy to search and others will take more work to find. Depending on the county. The Texas department of safety has a warrant search web-page, however, the search requires Texas driver's license number and the date of birth.

    By Car
    Nov 06, 2016

    There are a couple of ways you can look up criminal using public records. One is the Texas Department of Public Safety's Computerized Criminal History System (CCH). You can do this search online. What you can get using this search is outlined prior to making the request. The link above "Texas Criminal Records:" takes you to that webpage. Another method of looking up criminal history is by accessing criminal court's case filings, either online when available or by going to the courthouse. Depending on how deep you want to look, case files can give you a lot more information as opposed to a report of convictions. Unfortunately, these courts are generally at county level, and with so many counties in Texas, you will need to somehow narrow the search. If you want to be thorough, you can do both, the convictions report from the TX DPS can tell you where the convictions are, then you can go to that county's court and pull up the entire case. If you hired a private investigator, this is most likely what they would be doing, trying everything available.

    When you do your own search, you can see court records, marriage verification letters to property records, which shows homeowners, the spouse is often included when there is one. Where you start depends on how much you already know? Whether you know the county the marriage took place or the address, many name searches show relatives living at the same address! Some areas are easier to view marriage records than others. If you do not know the location of the marriage, the state of Texas provides a public service to request marriage verifications.

    If you're fortunate, it's in a county such as Bexar, Denton and others which, using their website, puts the property information up online for public view. Look for tax assessors office webpages. I was able to find these searches for the two counties quickly using the search term "free texas property owner search".

    If there was a prosecution and conviction, it would be the same as looking for a criminal record, which is public and should be available. If you know the court/county, then you can search their court records, check that county’s courthouse website for electronic case search. Using Dallas county as an example, the county district clerks site has an online. If that's the county, there's a tab above "Records", the drop down will have a hyperlink "Online Records Search", that will take you to a page with a hyperlink "Dallas County Felony and Misdemeanor Courts Case Information". Thereafter, you will be able to conduct a free criminal records search.

  • Question: How do I find out what's on my arrest record for free.
    By Jim
    May 23, 2016

    Depending on where or which department made the report. Police/sheriffs departments have websites, some of which waive the first copy to the person(s) involved. Defense attorneys often request the arrest reports and keep copies in their files. That's how to get official arrest/reports, however, if you just want to view any records of arrest, you can view lists of them by going through many of Texas' sheriffs department websites and look at booked individuals. You may see that the webpage will mention "recent arrests", their search can go back months or even over a year. Another method is looking through periodicals, such as news wires and press releases from multiple sources, either government agencies or private entities.

    By anonymous
    May 10, 2016

    Taking others’ legal advice without being certain as to who they are or what their qualifications are is not a wise approach. The Texas constitution and statutes are online openly and freely to the public. Start there by selecting the property codes, then there will be categories such as “Residential Tenancies” and more. You can spend as much time on there looking as you need. Another approach is going to look up tenant rights directly on the state’s attorney general’s website. Look under tenant rights and you’ll be able to navigate to many answers. Even when your answer seems to be an obvious one, you should look it up yourself. Also, look up the difference between civil and criminal negligence.

    Periodicals, local papers (online or otherwise) will have many of these incidents reported. Another idea would be to do a reverse address search to find out who lived there previously. Once you have a list of names, you can check for past criminal activity under the individuals which lived there.

    Because they don't check to see if people getting married are legally divorced. That would take a lot of time. You need to file for divorce and report him to the police for bigamy.

    Someone I know was married back in 2001, filed for a divorce in 2012, and found out in 2014 that her husband was married to another woman that he didn't divorce until 2006. My friend is still waiting for her divorce to be finalized. She was told they can't go after him for bigamy because of statute of limitations. I called the sheriff's dept. and they said to contact a lawyer. This should have never happened in the first place. This system is broken. There should be a database in place that alerts the clerk or prevents the clerk from issuing a license until a divorce can be verified. It is not that difficult especially if it occurs in the same state.
