(Included in the Premier Package)
A federal criminal record check is a repository search of federal criminal history records. This search is done by federal jurisdiction. A repository search means a court researcher is sent to the federal district court of your choice to do a manual record search. Our extensive network of court researchers verifies that the correct person is being searched and provides requested information in compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).
We can retrieve information from 189 district courts, 136 bankruptcy courts, and 13 circuit courts of appeals. Each hit produced from a federal criminal history check will provide party name, the court where the case was filed, the case number, the filing date, date of birth (if available), attorney names, docket entries and verdict information.
The United States district courts are the trial courts of the federal court system. Within limits set by Congress and the Constitution, the district courts have jurisdiction to hear nearly all categories of federal cases, including both civil and criminal matters. A federal criminal records search is included in our Premier package, but can be added to any order.
Common federal criminal records can be for crimes related to:
- Drug trafficking
- Drug importation and exportation
- Identity theft
- Child pornography
- Sex offenses
- Weapons, explosives, hijacking
- Crimes against children
- Food stamp fraud
- Obstruction of justice
Average turnaround time federal criminal record searches depend on the individual jurisdiction overseeing the search. On average, the federal criminal record check is typically returned within 24-72 hours. However, some state and local jurisdictions may take longer or charge additional fees to access the records. If that is the case, we will notify you and ask you how you want to proceed.
Federal criminal record searches are available for a 7-year timeframe. As an FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act) compliant company we will not provide any conviction record(s) older than 7 years.
