Was a restraining order placed against your candidate? If you do a criminal background check only, you may never know. Searching civil records provides additional, vital information you need to make an informed decision. Are you preparing to rent a property? Civil records may also show if a potential tenant was sued for damaging previous rental properties. Civil complaints can also indicate performance issues and applicants with a history of repeated complaints that did not transform into criminal charges.

Rapid Results Background Check Solutions thoroughly searches county court records as well as local and federal civil settlements. This includes areas where the applicant has lived for the past ten years.

Information on a civil records search may reveal:

  • Litigation (whether the applicant was involved as a plaintiff or defendant)
  • Breach of contract
  • Lawsuits
  • Divorce
  • Judgements
  • Restraining orders
  • Bankruptcies
  • Domestic disputes
  • Paternity suits

Whether you are choosing an executive, a contractor, or even a potential tenant, you can do so with confidence when you order a civil record background search.
