Multiple and Various Background Checks

A background check is a process a person or company uses to verify that an individual is who they claim to be, and provides an opportunity for someone to check a person's criminal record, education, employment history, and other activities that happened in the past in order to confirm their validity. Whether you're applying for a job, looking for a new apartment, or purchasing a firearm, you may have a need to undergo a background check.

There are several different types of background checks used for different situations. There are no hard and fast rules about how long a background check should take; each piece of the check has its own timeline.

Many of the checks are even returned instantly. Here is a breakdown of the approximate timelines of the many different types of background checks:

A client can request all of these checks or only a limited amount of checks, depending on the need or overall extent of the required check. All background checks are custom ordered, and costs are varied based on request.
