Are county criminal court searches FCRA compliant?
The county courthouse criminal search is considered the most efficient approach for validating an applicant’s criminal past. In addition, it also conforms to FCRA compliance requirements by providing up-to-date criminal case status, specifically the final disposition outcome.
Oftentimes, a criminal database search may only contain original arrest information that has not been updated to it’s current status. For example, it may not show that a felony was pleaded down to a misdemeanor, a case was later dismissed at trial or show the full details of a conditional dismissal.
The aforementioned are particularly important in the eyes of the Fair Credit Report Act (FCRA) as well as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and can very well result in penalties and fines for an employer or landlord.

Did you know that not all county court searches are the same?
For instance, when searching in the state of Pennsylvania — our county court researcher must first search the Magistrate court and then the Court of Common Pleas for a final disposition in the event the case went to trial. This applies to many other county courts whereby final case disposition is found on the higher level county court search and not necessarily on the originating court where the case was filed.
Our county criminal court search is priced at $18.00* per name for a seven year felonies and misdemeanors search. We can search past seven years for an additional $5.50 per year surcharge. View sample county criminal court report.
