How to better understand records that I've received as a result of a background check

The Results Of Your Search.

Once you receive your report with search results, you should consider that some records may not be of your specific searchee. As mentioned previously, many records are searched based on the person's name. Thereafter they can be narrowed with other criterias such as residence address, age, middle name/initial, spouse's name and so on. In some cases most of the criterias may match due to the person you're searching is a Jr., II or III and so on. Many records do not include or show whether the person in the record is Jr., II or III. To help narrow your search in these instances, look for dates and most recent addresses among other information to separate and distinguish the person(s) you are intending to search. It is generally easier to read your report when printed out on paper, particularly if the report is lengthy. Thereafter, review all the information, even if you believe that the record is no value to you. Some records such as the voter registration can show searchee's age, an address not found anywhere else, dates which will tell you when the searchee claims to be at the stated address and so on. You can save your search results, but remember that records and databases are constantly added and updated. Conducting searches on a regular basis can be essential. Check and make sure that there are recent updates for your particular database.

If There Are No Records Found.

There are a few reasons why a background check may not show records. Among many reasons, if the searchee is young records may not have yet been established. Since most records are of adults, a person that is 19 years of age for example will generally not have most of the records you are looking into. Particularly records such as real property ownership, businesses, judgment, liens and so on. Persons that have newly entered the United States such as nannies, care takers just to name a few possible instances can fall in this category. As mentioned previously, searching a new married name, the old maiden name not recently used or failure to search for all possible names and conducting separate background checks for each can yield dismal results. This is not an absolute however, there are cases where an individual that is not relatively young and has been a resident in the United States for a lengthy period can still show no records. You may consider in some of these cases to conduct an International search or expanding your search to cover credit checks. Spelling of name is also crucial. If you are not sure of name's spelling, you can conduct an address reverse search. This is when the researcher enters the address you believe is of the searchee, in most cases a previous address can also be used, thereafter names under the address will appear to verify the name's spelling. Other errors such as the wrong middle initial and other inaccurate information can hinder a proper search. This is not to discourage you from providing all the information you have. Providing as much information as possible can greatly narrow or expand your search. Simply check and review the information before submitting the order, if unsure, inform the researcher or contact customer service.
