The court-clerk may know or you could contact the police. Generally speaking, if there is an active warrant, a quick check record by a court-clerk should work. Some courts have records available online. It may be worth it to try that route as well. If you suspect you have an active warrant, I recommend retaining a lawyer and turning yourself in.

Go to the county in which you believe you have an active warrant. Go to the criminal courts building. Show clerk ID ask if you have any warrants. They will print out sheet if you do. You need to check in separate places for criminal and traffic warrants.

    You should turn yourself into the sheriff, and they will run you in the database to determine if there is a warrant, and where it is from, and how much bail is necessary for your release from custody. Or, you can hire a lawyer to check into this for you, or at least, accompany you when you turn yourself in.
