STATE CRIMINAL HISTORY

Search state for criminal history

Order a search of criminal records in any US state – or in multiple state. State criminal checks provide fast results to questions about someone’s past.

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.arrow down

FAQ

Common questions about State Criminal History

What is the scope and typical turnaround time on a state criminal record search?
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.
 
Do take into account that while our goal is to update our instant database with new counties and new county records regularly, it is possible that a traditional on-premise court house search would provide more up-to-date information and could, for example, show that a criminal record with a pending case status in our instant data base has been recently dismissed.
