Criminal Record

Criminal Record Application Form

Definitions of a Criminal Record and/or a Criminal Background Check can mean that there is a history of being convicted for a crime. Or in the person’s history is a list of previous criminal convictions.

Basically the Criminal Record and the Criminal Background Check are virtually the same. There exist two areas where these records can be acquired. There is the Local level and the Federal level. At the local level this document can be obtained from the county or state level. Likewise each state has their own way of doing things but there are common ways to perform the Criminal Record and/or Criminal Background Check.

One particular requirement in most instances are fingerprints, this is especially true at the Federal level. In some cases there are states that have an exception where the search is made with a name and a date of birth and someone’s social security number.

The Federal level isn’t as liberal in terms of the way things are done; nevertheless, at this level we see the Federal Bureau of Investigations taking over. The F.B.I background check covers the entire United States of America. Depending on the purpose and the country involved sometimes local search can only take you so far. Unfortunately if going the Federal route then planning ahead is of the essence. The F.B.I. can process the request but it takes usually from 8-12 weeks for the search to be completed.

Again, to use the Federal level, fingerprints are a must and a requirement.

We sometimes embark on causes that are important to us. When traveling abroad necessary elements become even more essential. The dynamics change drastically when including another country. When we consider adoption or school issues like attendance or even If one is considering issues pertaining to employment it is important to have documentation that is required. For example the Residents of the United States may be asked to present a Criminal Record or a Criminal Background Check or a “Certificate of Good Conduct” or “Lack of a Criminal Record”. These records are needed to be produced when working on these issues mentioned.

Interestingly enough in the United States law enforcement authorities may not be familiar with such a procedure since it is not commonly requested in the United States. Luckily there are a variety of options available to United States citizens that are seeking to obtain proof of their lack of a criminal record.
