3 Myths about Background Checks

You may be wondering what background checks have to do with your court case. Background checks can give the court a more detailed understanding of people involved in your case. Many people believe that the courts already have full background information on anyone involved in a case, or easy access to it, but this is not the case. This is just one of the many myths about background checks. The following article is intended to correct several of the most common of these myths.

Myth #1: All those working in the legal field have access to the national database, which includes all criminal activity.

Truth: In fact, only the FBI has access to this database, and there are some things that it will not include, such as some types of misdemeanors and juvenile offenses.

Myth #2: There are online aggregators that can put together a sufficient background check for me.

Truth: While such services exist, these aggregators often present flawed or insufficient information. Some agencies or governmental groups do not report to them at all, making them incomplete. There is little that can be done to ensure that you have a comprehensive background check other than doing a lot of legwork yourself or hiring a specialist to do so for you.

Myth #3: There are online sites that will perform background checks for free.

Truth: Notwithstanding the issue of quality addressed in myth #2, it is also highly unlikely that you will be able to find a background check that is truly free online. If you do, the standard of quality of the check is likely to be lower than what you may need.
