Does a warrant follow you if you change your name?

I thought I had a warrant for non-payment of some fines from a few years ago. It was under my maiden name. I got married and changed my last name. Then I got pulled over. They said I didn't have one (I told him when he pulled me over I thought I did, and he checked and said no, I dont). Now I got divorced and went back to my maiden name. If I still had this warrant, would it have shown up under my married name as well, or is it just by last name? So if it follows me, yet they said I didn't have one under the changed name, does that imply that the warrant is gone?

It will follow you. A warrant is listed under your name, social security number, license number and whatever other identifying number you have, along with a plethora of physical descriptors. Some jurisdictions enter warrants differently, depending on whether they are a misdemeanor or felony. Just call the police department where you think there is a warrant out for you (the ones who issued you the fines) and turn yourself in.

You can call the jurisdiction in which you may or may not have a warrant and they will tell you if you do.

It depends on what the fines were for. Is it a warrant for your arrest? Basically, your social security number doesn't change.

Yes, it follows you.
