Since 1996, Affirm has performed millions of wholesale county criminal searches for the nation's leading employment screening companies. We also provide many other wholesale services to CRA's.
County Level Criminal Search
This is a criminal record search at the county level. The search includes felonies and county level misdemeanors in most areas. We never use private databases for our county criminal research. All county criminal searches are real-time, accurate, up-to-date searches done in the court's predominantly used index, whether computer terminals or index cards.(Yes, there are still counties that use a manual system!) Our nation-wide network of well seasoned hands-on researchers is the largest of it's kind.
Statewide Criminal Search
This is a criminal record search at the state level. Statewide searches are available in most states. All of our statewide searches are conducted in the widely recognized state repositories or state court systems. These are not private database or department of corrections searches. Information returned varies from state to state. Detailed information about each statewide search that we offer (scope of the search, etc.) is listed in our pricing information.
Federal Criminal Search
This is a criminal search at the federal level. Federal crimes include bank robbery, drug trafficking, embezzlement, crimes that cross state lines and crimes that occur on federal property such as a military base. Pricing for our federal searches are per federal district. There are one to four federal districts per state, depending on the state's size. When ordering, you can specify which districts you want to search or we can look them up for you based on where they lived.
County Court Civil Records
This is a county level search for civil court records. Civil records are generally divided between the upper and the lower courts based on the monetary amount of the claim. Our default search is in the upper court.(The lower court may be searched as well, for an additional fee.) Civil records contain records of lawsuits, small claims, and judgments, and other money related matters.
