Three Common Ways to Search Public Records

February 24th, 2008 by Andreas Xavier in Background checks, Criminal records, Divorce records, Marriage records, Public records. Topics:

In spite of all the controversy and talks about one’s right to privacy, an increasing number of people search public records for various reasons. Background checks, marriage and divorce records, criminal and civil records, phone directories, property records, family history, adoption and birth records, VIN decoders, driving records, unclaimed assets, business records, immigration records, and a thick bundle of other records and files can be obtained in case the need arises.

There are quite a few variants what you can do in order to get access to the information you need. However, all of them fall under three main categories:

1. Search public records in federal and local government agencies.

Depending on the type of the information you need, you can search in courts, schools, churches, public archives, trade associations, etc. The task can be quite tough, especially if you have to search in other states and in a number of establishments. While some records are available for free, many of them are not, and you can end up paying quite a sum, especially if you are compiling a detailed dossier. This way to search public records may be effective, but requires a lot of time, effort, patience and, in some cases, money.

2. Hire a third party.

Call it a detective agency or middleman, the idea is to involve a third party to perform a complete or partial search for you. No doubt, if you deal with a professional you can expect perfect results in a short span of time; however, you should realize that not everybody can afford such services. If you are just curious about your potential date, hiring a professional detective is a way too much for such a minor thing. If you want to perform background check of your employees, the investigation can cost you a fortune.

3. Search public records online.

The fastest (and sometimes cheapest) variant to find any type of public record you are looking for is to use online databases. Though few details are available freely on such websites, a wealth of information is accessible for a small fee, either based on a number of searches or as a package. Within seconds, you can find comprehensive information on anybody – alive or dead – without the need to go long distances and spend time in government offices, or pay to a private investigator. Take advantage of the information age and search public records online – as easily and fast as never before.
