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.
The time it takes to fulfill a criminal search at the state court varies wildly, from one business day to several weeks. Before finalizing the order, you can view a typical turnaround time for each direct court search in our shopping cart. By default, a statewide search covers 7 years of criminal record history, but customers can select from a variety of different time spans (such as 10, 20 or 30 years) when they submit their search, provided state law does not restrict such time spans.
