FBI Background Checks
What is an FBI Background Check?
A compilation of records on file with the FBI obtained through fingerprint submissions.
What kind of information is in my file?
Records related to arrests, federal employment, naturalization, and military service.
How long does it take to process a background check?
Submitting a request directly to the FBI can take 8-12 weeks for processing. In some cases, it takes longer.

Is this expedited process available for everyone?

Our clients’ privacy is our highest priority. Your results will be sent to your email, available as a PDF document and physical tamperproof copies can be sent using standard USPS Mail, USPS Priority Mail, or FedEx overnight delivery.
Is there anything further I should know about my FBI Background Check?
If you have plans to live, work, or attend school in any of these foreign countries, certain documents, including your FBI Background Check results, require an Authentication or Apostille.
