Frequently Asked Questions

What does a background check consist of?
A Background Check can be basic or very comprehensive, depending on the employer’s requirements. At the very least, it must include a SSN Trace for address history and a search of the County Courts in those jurisdictions for relevant criminal records. A National Criminal Database Search, Federal Criminal Records Check and Sex Offender Search are the add-ons we often recommend.
Depending on the position, other searches may also be conducted; such as verifications of education/employment, financial and credit history, driving records and drug screening.

Diligent Screening offers every type of search currently available in the Industry.

How long does a background check take?
Diligent Screening Services makes every effort to avoid the bottlenecks that lead to delays in turnaround time, and aims to provide results within 24 hours.

Due to our extensive network of dedicated court researchers, in every county in the U.S. Diligent Screening returns over 78% of orders on the same day they’re requested. However, some courts do not offer self-service computers, and require that searches be performed by the clerks themselves, on a first come, first serve basis. The turnaround time for these counties is on average 3 days.

What is a Federal Criminal Records Search?
A Federal Criminal Records Check searches for offenses committed at the Federal level. Including but not limited to, tax evasion, smuggling, kidnapping, and forgery. These records are only found at the US Federal District Courts and do not extend to County Court level.
Does the National Database uncover records from all of the U.S?
No. A criminal records database should only be used as a research tool, and not as standalone background check. Only a portion of counties report to these databases, and the information is often outdated or incomplete. However adding it as a supplement to the SSN Trace and County Criminal searches increase the probability of finding possible convictions. Any possible records found in a database search, are verified at the county court level before being reported to employers, as required by the FCRA.
