Checkr relies on county courthouses and their clerks to receive the information we need to complete our background checks as accurately as possible. After we request the information, Checkr has no control over how quickly we receive it. Checkr can't expedite the background check process.
To complete a background check, Checkr must access or request information from courts, institutions, and other organizations. We often receive information quickly, such as when it's readily available online. However, some information requires manual searches or cooperation from organizations, which can lengthen the report's turnaround time. Delays might result from the reasons below:
- The court has no electronic records or is closed.
- The background check includes a county search, which requires a court clerk to help complete the search.
