How Long Do Background Checks Take?

Most background checks take around 24-48 hours. Why? You're not just paying for a "instant database search", we are paying our network of 200+ court runners to go and search for your records. Reasons for Delays: 1. Remote Counties 2. Clerk Assisted Search (Must wait on the clerk to confirm IDs or other information) 3. Weather or other unexpected occurrences.

Why Order a Social Security Background Check vs A Typical Online People Search Background Check?

A social security number background check provides a 80% more accurate records than typical people search sites like BeenVerified. When a social security number search is conducted, the search goes through credit bureau data (Don't worry, your credit is NEVER hit) and provides us every spot your applicant (or yourself) has ever lived, been arrested, went to school and much more. From this personal information, we can pinpoint exactly where to send court researchers to run a background check. Whereas, people searches do not utilize the social security number and cannot legally conduct employment or tenant screening, as people search sites are not FCRA complaint.
