County Criminal Record Search
The County Criminal Record Search is a very effective means of determining if an Applicant has a criminal record. Law enforcement officials report charges resulting from arrests on felony, misdemeanor and other offenses at the county court level. The County Criminal Record Search is conducted in counties where the Applicant is most likely to have any information filed, such as current and former counties of residency. easyBackgrounds uses researchers for this criminal background check that work directly with the court, either by going directly to the courthouse or utilizing the courts electronic access system where available. The standard search covers a 7 year period from the date of the request. Court fees may apply and vary by location. Results from this criminal record check are typically returned in 1 to 3 business days.
Statewide Criminal Record Search
This criminal record check is usually used to obtain information from the states that do not offer Instant Criminal Record searches, or in cases where the data source for the Instant Criminal Record search is not sufficient. Statewide criminal background checks are a popular item and we recommend them as a supplement to the County Criminal Record search, casting a wider net of research. Information kept by individual states varies widely; clients can view criminal record data and a description of what each state maintains in its records. This criminal record search is generally completed on a next-day basis.
Federal Criminal Record Search
Violations of Federal law are recorded in US Federal District Courts. The number of districts in each state varies, but each state has at least one. While there are fewer violations of Federal laws, they generally involve very serious offenses such as embezzlement, robbery, drug trafficking and kidnapping. Records can be searched by name only and results may reveal records which require further research to confirm the identity of the parties involved. Federal Criminal Record searches are generally returned within 24 hours.
Nationwide Sex Offender Records
This search checks names against National Sex Offender Registry lists and other sources that include data from 50 States and Washington, DC. This is a Name Search, however, every effort will be made to obtain at least two identifiers before reporting records found by our researchers. Photos may be available for further identification
International Criminal Records
International criminal records are available from most countries and vary widely in expense. When placing an order, pricing will show up as “Call”, indicating you should contact us before placing your order. We will provide a price for the country to be searched and advise of any specific release forms or other identifiers that may be required.
National Criminal Records Indicator
A National Criminal Records Indicator search (sometimes called a ‘Nationwide Criminal Record Search’) is a great way to expand the scope and quality of your background check. This search takes your screening outside the candidate’s region of residency, providing a more comprehensive report. In accordance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) Section 613, records are verified for accuracy before being reported. Read Descriptions and disclaimers here
