What information are you looking for?
You want to make sure that you have a thorough background check that tells you everything that you need to know – which is why it can be frustrating to have so many different options available to you. We have a list of different features that you can search for, which will make it easier to find the right option to suit your needs.
Criminal Background Check
This is the ‘traditional ‘ background check where you are going to find criminal offenses, including probations, misdemeanors, and felonies. You can find information on a national, regional, and state level and you should opt for this type of search if you know their exact date of birth and the exact spelling of their name.
The Advanced Background Check
In order to search for known aliases, you will have to use the person’s social security number. This is a great search tool if you believe that the person has other aliases, nicknames, previously married names, and maiden names. Because these are based on the person’s social security number you will not have to include the different variants.
The Advanced Plus Background Check
You can retrieve county records from a courthouse and scan all databases by social security number. This is going to require you to wait a bit longer, but will offer a single search for all available criminal check services. This is also going to help you narrow down your further options.
When To Run What
Are you unsure what the difference is between a county, state, regional and national background check? We will break down the information for you.
- County – As the name suggestions, this is going to find the information in a specific county. Perhaps the county that you need information from limits its information to on-site access. This is going to give you the latest and most relevant on someone.
- State – You are going to get the information from a single state. If the person you are looking up information for has only lived in a single state, this is a great option.
- Regional – This is going narrow a search down to a single region. Perhaps the person has lived in the same region, but lived across several different states. The options include the Eastern, Midwestern, Southern, and Western United States.
- National – If the person that you need information on has lived across the country, this is the best option to search for.
If you want to make sure that you have the latest information and know the recent residences of the person you are looking for, it is a good idea to run a number of different searches and find out information that way. We can help you narrow down the best type of search for the type of information that you require.
