Individual Background

An Individual Background Investigation or Personal Background Investigation provides information useful to determine a person's general character, stability and trustworthiness.

This investigation will normally ascertain the subject's true identity, name usage, residence address history, associations, business ownership interests, employer or other income sources.

In addition, a thorough search of the subject's civil litigation history, criminal background and arrest history can be undertaken within the region the subject currently resides or in counties, states or countries of previous residence, employment or travel.

Investigation can also be directed to conduct a deep-web search of the individual's social media and online activities.

The investigation can provide the subject's driving history and personal financial profile including ownership interests such as real property or motor vehicles and liabilities including bankruptcies, civil judgments, evictions, notices of default or foreclosure, and state or federal tax liens. A personal background investigation may be fundamental or complex depending upon the subject individual and matters at issue.
