Backgrounds can be conducted for a number of reasons.
For instance, maybe you’d like to know that the person you met on an online dating site (and are planning on meeting for coffee) does not have a record of sexual misconduct.
Or perhaps you need to know if the person that your ex-wife is dating (and has access to your kids) does not have a record of drug abuse or domestic violence. Are you thinking of entrusting the care of your home or pet to someone while you’re away on business?
Backgrounds provide a large amount of information. The media portrays investigators as being able to pull up data with a few keystrokes, but that’s not quite true. Despite having certain databases available, analysis and comparisons must be accomplished before providing results.
Background reports do not contain credit or financial information.
Backgrounds are most often tailored to the case.
