There should be a date on the warrant that says when it was signed by the judge, however, the police do not necessarily have to act on it that day.
You should hire a criminal defense lawyer if a search warrant was issued against your property. Please visit our web site and call or email us with any questions.

It may have an exact time and date it was filed, but it will only have the date it was signed. An attorney may be able to ascertain the time it was signed through questioning in a deposition or investigation.

The date is easy the exact time of day takes some extrapolation. It sounds like the first SW was replaced. If the first warrant was served start then and sometime between the next arrival of the warrant and the first service the new one had to have been signed.

they were both signed but we believe that the second one was brought after the search.
