A Atlanta warrant is a legal document that authorizes law enforcement agents to arrest and search individuals or property.
A court will usually issue a warrant based on probable cause that a crime has been committed.
Arrest warrants and search warrants are two kinds of warrants. Arrest warrants are used to capture people suspected of committing crimes, whereas search warrants are used to enable searches of people’s homes or companies for evidence of a crime.
Warrants must be explicit in terms of who or what is being searched or seized, and they must be supported by probable cause. Probable cause is a legal criterion that requires law enforcement officials to have reasonable reasons to suspect that a search will yield evidence of a crime.

Order to Search
Probable cause is a criterion courts use to decide whether there is sufficient evidence to establish a search warrant. It is founded on a reasonable belief that a crime has been committed, substantiated by evidence or circumstances.
When there is good reason to think that a crime has been committed and that evidence of the crime is likely to be located at a certain place, a Atlanta court will issue a search warrant.
