Am I charged if the person I searched upon does not have a criminal record?

You are charged regardless of whether the individual searched upon has a criminal record or not as we are charged for searching public records to confirm this for you. Not all individuals have a criminal record. The point of purchasing a Criminal Check is to check and verify if an individual has a criminal record or not. There are some instances where you may feel a person has a criminal, but the public records database confirms there are no criminal offenses. The following explain some instances where an individual would not have an available criminal record from the public records database:

  • The person has never been convicted of a crime. (An arrest does not create a criminal record. The person must be convicted of a crime to have a criminal record)
  • The criminal records have been expunged
  • The criminal records have not yet been updated in the public records database. (Updates can take several months)
  • The criminal records have been sealed and are no longer public. (ie - Minors criminal offenses are sealed and not a matter of public records)
  • The criminal record is in a different state then the state searched upon
  • criminal offenses are under a different name/d.o.b then the one searched upon
