No More Guessing, Find Out When To Expect Background Check Results

Ever wonder why some background check results take longer  than others?

turnaround times vary the most when  you order county-level searches. Although these searches are the most accurate and up to date, not all counties manage their public records the same way.

Some counties have digitized their records, but not all have. Some still work from documents that are physically stored at their local courthouses.

When you order a background check on someone who has lived in a county where records aren't digitized, GoodHire sends a professional court runner to go to the courthouse and request this data in person.

With so much variation from county to count, it’s hard for us to tell you exactly when your county court check will be ready.  With our new feature, you can look up the average turnaround time for any specific county to forecast when your report will be ready.

The majority of county checks run in fewer than three days. Certain counties can take much longer.

GoodHire recommends checking county turnaround times tooltip when running a 7-Year County Criminal Court Search, especially if it seems to be taking longer than usual. 

How It Works:

  1. Go to the GoodHire pricing page.
  2. Scroll down to view all service descriptions and add-ons.
  3. Navigate to the “7-Year County Criminal Court Search” section.
  4. Click on the blue question mark to view the tooltip.
  5. Check to see how long your county court check will take.
