All Background Check Investigation orders must be on individuals that are at least 18 years old.
By placing a Background Check Investigation order through 360 Investigations & Backgrounds, LLC you understand that there are situations where some criminal records may not be available. These situations include, but are not limited to:
1. Records that are sealed by court order. All juvenile records are sealed and there are other cases where a judge can order a record sealed for various reasons. In most jurisdictions, an individual is considered a juvenile until they reach the age of 18.
2. 360 Investigations & Backgrounds, LLC uses multiple resources searching through available digital records nationwide. If a record is available digitally, chances are that we will find it. However, there are still some jurisdictions that do not report offenses digitally. If a jurisdiction does not report the offense digitally, it will not be found or included in our report. Some jurisdictions do not report criminal offenses or will only report felony offenses or offenses that have a Department of Corrections Record.
3. Sometimes, following a conviction (especially a first-time offender), a dismissal, or a not-guilty verdict, a person may be able to have their record expunged. Other times, a person may receive a pardon from a state governor or from the President of the United States. Expunged and pardoned cases are removed from a person’s record and are not available.
Sex Offender Registrations
All states and Washington, DC require that certain convicted sex offenders register in the state in which they are residing. All states report that information digitally and our investigations include searches of those databases. If a person is a registered sex offender, that information will be included in the report that you receive.
