Civil Background Checks

Civil searches, where allowed by individual states, stem from criminal background searches to fill in federal and county records. Depending on your company’s needs, these searches may help in reviewing candidate for certain business positions.

Federal Civil

Federal civil searches include records that involve alleged violations of federal statutory or constitutional rights. These civil cases are brought by individuals, businesses or governmental entities regarding monetary damages, request injunctions to stop the allegedly illegal behavior or monetarily pursue other remedies provided by law. Federal civil cases deal with many issues, including interstate commerce, anti-trust activity and violations of federal law.

County Civil (Upper & Lower)

County civil searches provide records related to litigation over state law issues. The data is retrieved directly from the individual counties. The type of filings available can vary from county to county, but generally, every type of civil case is available. This is a manual search of county court records and goes back 7 years.
