    Default Misdemeanor Warrant And Interstate or International Travel

    Hey everyone, I have a misdemeanor warrant in ohio but I live/work in another state far away. My question is can they tell in states such as Alaska or Hawaii? And my other question is can i leave the country and come back in without a problem from a different state then where the warrant is? Im going to be taking care of this problem but cant do it till later this year. Any help would be great. Thanks

    Q: My question is can they tell in states such as Alaska or Hawaii?

    A: Yes.


    Q: And my other question is can i leave the country and come back in without a problem from a different state then where the warrant is?

    A: It depends on whether you get caught when you're crossing the border. I wouldn't chance it but you may have other ideas. Also, the country you are going into may not let you in.

    A misdemeanor warrant is not likely to create problems while flying, particularly if you're not flying into or out of the jurisdiction which issued the warrant, but in today's age nobody can promise you that nothing will happen. If you can afford to travel to Alaska and Hawaii, I doubt that you have a good excuse for not taking care of the misdemeanor warrant.

    I dont travel there for fun I work there. What would happen if I arrived in Singapore and they wouldnt let me in? This is all for work and not pleasure.

    Thanks everyone. Im going to take care of this but just cant at the moment becuase of work. I will be going to ohio at the end of the year to do so. I guess I never thought a misdemeanor warrent would show up overseas when they swipe your passport.

    to clear things up the warrant is in Ohio but I live in hawaii. If I fly around hawaii or from hawaii to asia, would they arrest me and ship me back to ohio?

    US law: Misdemeanor warrants are not extraditable.


    There are still plenty of other nasty things they can do to you. Put a hold on your income tax refund, not allow you to get a driver's license, revoking any professional licenses you have, etc.

    Stuff like that....

    I guess im just confused. If they look at your social once the warrant is issued, they can see where your paychecks are coming from so they would know where you are. So does that mean everyone who has an outstanding warrant works under the table?

    Yes, you are confused.

    I never said anywhere that 100% of the laws are 100% enforced 100% of the time.
