County Criminal Searches

County Criminal Searches determine if a candidate has a felony, misdemeanor or infraction offense within a specific county.

This type of search covers more than 3,300 county courthouses locating records disposed of in superior, upper, lower, and/or municipal level courts. Reports contain legally reportable information, typically including the date of arrest and filing, charges, level of charges, disposition date, final disposition and any applicable sentence or penalty. Application Verification’s Program Specialists conduct strict quality control procedures on each criminal record before it is reported back to our clients.


Credit Reporting

Credit Reports may offer insight into a potential candidate’s reliability by providing a sense of their personal responsibility. Credit Reports include credit information, public filings, account standing with creditors, and previous address history.

Due to strict guidelines controlled by the FCRA on the handling of credit reports, Application Verification provides PEER, with FICO score and without FICO score.

DMV Motor Vehicle Record Checks

Department of Motor Vehicle Checks, also known as Motor Vehicle Records, show a comprehensive overview of a candidate’s driving history. Records highlight driving history over the past 3-7 years and are available in all 50 states and Washington D.C. Reports include all personal identifiers as well as traffic offenses and citations.
