FBI reports are typically needed for following reasons-

Personal Review/Challenge

Federal regulations mandate that all U.S. Citizens and Permanent Legal Residents have access to their FBI Criminal Report for personal review. You may review your personal “rap sheet” at any time to confirm its accuracy.

A 2010 survey conducted by the Society for Human Resource Management estimates that 92% of employers conduct a criminal background check. You may want to review your FBI Criminal Report before your prospective employer does.

If your criminal record contains incorrect information, you should contact the state court or identification bureau that maintains the original record.

Foreign Travel or Work

Some foreign embassies ask that you provide a copy of your criminal history record when requesting travel authorization. You may utilize the services provided by us to obtain a copy of your FBI Criminal Report, which can satisfy this requirement.

While everyone prefers to plan international travel well in advance, many busy business travelers know that flying at the last minute goes with the territory. We provide fast turnaround that can save weeks of waiting, and missed trips, compared to other services.

Work or Student Visas

When applying for a Work Visa or Student Visa, some countries require a copy of your criminal history as part of the background investigation.

Using our services to obtain an official copy of your FBI Criminal Report is fast, easy and safe. Moreover, we can obtain apostille on the report from US Department of State in as little as 4-5 days. Our services are very economical compared to the stress if you have to do it yourself.  

Adoption Requirements

Most states, and some foreign countries, require a complete criminal history check when applying to adopt a child.

Here at Authxperts, we appreciate everything you’re going through in the adoption process. Our goal is to make it easy and non-stressful when you are asked to provide a copy of your official FBI Criminal Report. Please check with local adoption agencies for requirements in your state.

Attorney Requests

To ensure proper legal representation, federal regulations allow you to request a copy of your personal criminal history report and have it sent directly to your attorney.

To have your official FBI Criminal Report sent to your attorney’s office, just include a signed Attorney Release Form, printed on your attorney’s letterhead, along with the rest of your forms.

Challenge Errors and Inaccurate Information

Just like your personal credit report, you have the right to challenge inaccurate information on your FBI Criminal Report and have it corrected.

If your criminal record contains incorrect information, you should contact the state court or identification bureau that maintains the original record.

Court Related Matters

With arrest, conviction and sentencing information from all 50 U.S. States, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Territories of Puerto Rico, Guam and Virgin Islands, the Criminal Justice Information System (CJIS) at the FBI is very busy.

Federal courts report conviction and sentencing information directly to the FBI. State and local courts report their information to a state identification bureau, which is responsible for sending the information to the FBI.

Correcting mistakes and errors can be difficult when dealing with multiple federal, state, county or local agencies. We can provide you with a copy of your personal FBI Criminal Report to verify that all corrections have been made and reported to federal authorities.

Just one report gives you information from every state and jurisdiction!
