When you consider searching for any form of public court records, normally a persons first thoughts are criminal records, or better yet, criminal records that are free to the public. Although the sound of trying to achieve this task or satisfying your curiosity for free would probably appeal to most anyone’s economical side, sometimes the results you were hoping for leave much to the imagination.

Not to knock any one states judicial records system, but quite frankly trying to get thorough, complete background results on any one particular individual using a manual search approach is at best only going to produce an outcome of basic, more then likely, unsatisfactory results. Let’s not forget, even for the seasoned Googler, (is this a word now too?) this will entail a fair amount of elbow/wrist grease! To suggest that visiting the local state or county repositories won’t produce the results one maybe looking for, depends entirely on the level of information expected. Most of the time, when inquiring in person, repositories require you to fill out and submit forms with a fee attached for each search or result produced (all local and state laws are regulated differently).

Cost’s are often associated when searching and obtaining any results through a local government website as well, such as Florida for instance. So why not use one source to search all states for all types of records, for a one time low price, and have the ability to run as many queries as you would like for the term of your purchase? And don’t forget, we offer Free Manual Search Assistance. Nobody else is really doing this!

Since criminal records are documents compiled and regulated by the public offices and government agencies, the general opinion is that they are available for free. Criminal records are some times difficult to obtain online or off. Usually if you spend enough time (online) you should be able to find sources of criminal records that are mainly free to the public. Including warrants, though finding warrants online can be done it’s not as easy as some would think. Obtaining this type of information from police departments and government agencies is also doable, but you need to usually put your request in writing (occasionally including fingerprints), and you can sometimes wait very extensive periods of time before receiving your information.
(Sometimes years, according to some reports.)


Multitudes of Public Information For Many Uses

Some people are, by accident or intentionally, discovering many other ways to incorporate a comprehensive criminal background check into their research and are quickly becoming one of the most basic things that people do these days.

With the abundance of criminal activity, perpetrators, and slick con-artists these days, it is also noticeable that peoples awareness in protecting themselves has grown to the point of diligently investigating all aspects of their lives. For example: *Neighborhoods – before moving into the neighborhood. *Company Environments – before excepting a position, or entering into a working relationship. *Your Children’s Friends – with whom they hang out with. *Perhaps a boyfriend, girlfriend or even someone you intend to marry. You get the picture…

Today’s technological advancements have catered to the need of searching for these documents in a very easy manor. With the help of various services available today searching through public criminal records, which used to be a daunting task before, has been substantially simplified.

These services are usually reasonably inexpensive and hands down worth the small investment!
