This is one of the most important tools for uncovering criminal records available, because law enforcement must report charges resulting from arrests on felonies, misdemeanors and other offenses. The County Criminal search is conducted at the county level where an applicant is most likely to have any information filed. We are one of few investigation companies using actual “live” researchers who hand-pick information from courthouses in every county in the United States.

Some mandated court fees may apply. We do not pad these fees. We simply pass them on to the client. Some counties are still “clerk assisted” in handling information and this may extend the turnaround time.

Even if court records may be provided by a court, they may not be reportable by or able to be considered by the End-User of the report, due to a variety of federal and state laws and regulations.

Common identifiers that are returned on county court records are name and Date Of Birth (DOB). Other identifiers may be available, such as Social Security Number (SSN), address, Driver’s License Number (DLN), etc. Personal identifiers may vary from county to county. More and more counties are placing restrictions on the personal identifiers they will return.

A SSN is NOT the primary identifier when conducting a criminal search. A Name and DOB are the primary identifiers. County Criminal records are NOT always reported to the state and federal jurisdiction once adjudicated. County Criminal records will NOT automatically appear on Instant Criminal searches.

Federal Criminal records are searched by the state of the applicant. Cases are typically related to homicide, kidnapping, drug trafficking, interstate transportation of stolen goods, bank robbery, immigration, firearm or explosive charges, certain sex offenses, and crimes aboard an aircraft.

If available, we will be able to provide/upload the contents of the Federal Criminal file to you at no additional cost. Federal Criminal charges are NOT found in the county and state repositories. Typically, the results are name-only matches, with very few other identifiers. Validation of the record can be time-consuming and there is no guarantee that pulling the file will result in additional verifiers. The word “Federal” does NOT mean national coverage.

A sex offender is typically an individual who has been convicted of a violent sexual crime such as rape, or someone who has committed a sexual offense against a child or another person. Details in the report usually include: identifiers, registered address, aliases, case numbers, charge(s), conviction details, and period of incarceration.

All 50 states are available. However, only 44 of these states include offender pictures. Please keep in mind that these databases are updated at the discretion of the state and some of the information may be reported directly from the offender. Additionally, some states prohibit the searching of sex offender databases for employment purposes. NV is one of those states.

A Nationwide Wants & Warrants search provides a wide scope of various states, counties, and law enforcement agencies revealing if a person has an outstanding warrant. If this is obtained via Georgia, these are only extraditable offenses. Not all law enforcement agencies participate in the database. However, reporting is the sole responsibility of the state and agency in charge of the pending warrant.

This search should not be used by itself. All warrants should be followed up with a County Criminal search to confirm the information. This search requires a release of authorization up front.

Does NOT contain information on all warrants currently active. This search does NOT contain information on every city, county, and state in the country. Information may NOT be complete, accurate and does need further investigation. This is NOT a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) check or finger print check.’s international criminal research is conducted using the best available source of information in a given country; typically a court, police agency or prosecutorial office.

Research is conducted either directly with public officials or utilizing agents in the country being searched. These agents, which in many instances are private investigators or equivalents, use their contacts to provide a search that utilizes the best source of information for that town, city or country.

Searches are usually limited to felonies or serious matters in the court of jurisdiction nearest to the applicant’s residence.

While best efforts are employed, cannot guarantee the completeness or accuracy of these searches. Due to changing business and political climates, availability and prices are subject to change without notice. Please contact 1-888-GOBACK-1 ext. 80 | for further country specific details and pricing.
