Database Searches

The backgroundchecks.com self-order feature takes advantage of their easy to use web-based platform and allows organizations to delegate some of the background check ordering process to their candidates by inviting them to enter their own information to initiate the background check and, where legal, to pay for the check themselves. The application is optimized for use on mobile devices facilitating the candidates’ ability to open the email-based invitations on their smart phone or tablet and immediately complete the remaining steps for ordering their background check, thus reducing the time required to get the check underway, reducing your labor cost, and reducing the possibility of data entry errors.

 

First: Choose one type of multi-jurisdictional search to start your background check:


US OneSEARCH

LifeWay Price: $10.00 - 58% Savings

Instant Report - Verification required in CA, CT, ME, MN and IN


With one search, you can comb more than 550 million criminal records from counties, department of corrections (DOC), administrative office of courts (AOC), and offender registries from all 50 states, plus Washington DC, Guam, and Puerto Rico. Also included are national and international terrorism sources and more than 10 million photos. A US OneSEARCH check provides the data you want, the quality you demand and the updates that ensure you get the best possible information.

US OneVERIFY

LifeWay Price: $12.00 - 54% savings
1-3 Days (Instant Results on Clears)

With a US OneVERIFY check, we will not only search more than 550 million criminal records from counties, departments of corrections (DOC), administrative Office of courts (AOC) and offender registries from all 50 states, plus Washington DC, Guam, and Puerto Rico, but we will also verify criminal matches directly at the source before reporting them, updating the record to match currently available public records, completing incomplete records, and allowing reporting of records that become legally reportable based only on the updated and complete record.

Is the US OneVERIFY still instant?- Yes and no. A criminal record search using our US OneVERIFY search option, will still return clear results back instantly, but when we discover criminal records that are a possible match, the system automatically changes the status to ‘in progress’ while our quality assurance department verifies each hit with the respective source. Depending on the number of hits and the response time from each search this can take a few days. Our average turnaround time for a verified search that initially has hits, is 1-3 business days.

DISCLAIMER: US OneSEARCH & US AliasSEARCH are only as accurate as the state, local or federal agencies reporting the data. The information can be updated as frequently as daily or as infrequently as semi-annually. In addition, some states and counties do not provide updates or make their records unavailable for computerized searches. Therefore, in order to receive the most recent information on a hit we recommend you purchase the UsOneVerify or US AliasVERIFY search.

 

 

Next: Supplement with direct searches at specific courts

 

We'll help you choose the most appropriate courthouses. As soon as you enter the subject's social security number we will in real time and at no charge to you run a name and address history search behind the scenes and recommend what county, state, and federal jurisdictions you should consider ordering based on the last seven years of your subject's address history.


County Criminal History Search

LifeWay Price: $10.00 - 17% savings
1-3 Days Report (additional court fees may apply)

Most felony and misdemeanor cases are filed in county courts, so county criminal record searches are one of the most powerful sources for uncovering criminal records. County criminal searches return information from the court records in which the conviction is recorded. A report covering county criminal records may include information regarding the degree of the offense, offense dates, case numbers, filing dates, defendants, counts, trial dates, verdicts, disposition, disposition dates, and sentencing information.

State Criminal History Search

LifeWay Price: $10.00
1-3 Days Report (additional court fees may apply)

A statewide search may yield information from multiple counties in a given state that report to a repository, useful for discovering crimes outside of the immediate area in which the subject lives or works. backgroundchecks.com can currently process record searches for 30 states in house through the state’s electronic access systems, including states like Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Florida, and South Carolina. For another 14 states, we submit requests to the state for fulfillment. And another 6 states have restrictions that prevent us from completing searches: These are California, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Nevada, Ohio and West Virginia.

Federal Criminal History Search

LifeWay Price: $11.00 - 27% savings
1-3 Days Report (additional court fees may apply)

A federal criminal search is conducted by ordering individual US District Court indices in much the same way as a county criminal history. You can specify which district you want to search and we retrieve records from that district. Alternatively, our auto development process can instantly recommend the federal jurisdictions. The recommendations are derived from a social security number based name and address history we run and present in real-time at no cost to you while you are entering the subject’s information on the order screen.
