Merced County Background Check

The past few years had seen the increase in background checks being conducted not only by law enforcement agencies but also by private entities who wants to know as much as they could about another person. Background checks are conducted typically in order to know about the criminal past of the subject of the search, and this became necessary owing to the changing nature of the world. The more frequent customers of the Merced County Background Check process are business owners and banks, but these are, by no means, the only entities that depend on background checks, because even parents who want to be assured that their kids are in the right neighborhood and environment could benefit from background checks. The same is true even for those who want to tie the knot as brides and grooms wants to know more about their prospective partner and make sure that he or she is who he said he is.

There are numerous firms that specialize in conducting background check, and it is undeniable that their experience in conducting background checks could be used by the instigator. Note, however, that these firms charge fees upwards of hundreds of dollars and their checks may take months. The instigator could actually do the background check, or at least part of it, himself using public records that are available to the public at all times as a matter of public policy.

Merced County Criminal Background Check


There are three types of public records that are most often depended upon when one is conducting a background check and these are arrest records, court records, and prison records, though by no means are these the only records that could be depended upon when conducting background checks because other useful tidbits of information may be found on other public documents. The trick, therefore, when conducting background check is to do it in a location where all the records could be found. Fortunately, there is such a place. Despite the fact that the law require the that records be kept where they were originally filed, the mandate of the Office of the Recorder as the official custodian of all public records in the county also comes into play, and thus, the office should have copies of every record that has been filed within the boundaries of the county. The recorder then has the responsibility of keeping, maintaining, and securing these records for reasons of posterity and so that the records could be found easily when a person requires them.

To request for copies of records at the office of the recorder may seem like a tedious process, but the procedure is relatively simple. First, the searcher would first have to go to the office and request permission there. Note that permission is almost always given and once the same had been given, the searcher must now search for the records at the archives, though he could request for the assistance of a member of the staff. Once the records had been located, the searcher could then request a copy of the same and after he had paid the required fee, which is one dollar per page of the record, such a copy would be made.

A faster and more efficient search could be conducted using online databases, though note that because of the law, these online databases would not be affiliated with the government. Despite this, the information in these databases are actually the same as the information that could be gathered from the different government offices, only, most of these online databases do not charge anything for the use of their databases. Internet searches also have the advantage of having no lines and not requiring the user to leave his home in order to conduct the search.

Given below is the procedure to request for records at the superior court of the county

  • Head over to the Superior Court Records Division.
  • Inform the staff member on duty of your intention to ask for copies of records.
  • The staff member on duty would ask you for the specifics of the record that you wish to obtain.
  • Using the specifics that you have given, the staff member on duty would use their own database to locate the records.
  • Once the records had been located, the staff member on duty would then get those records to present them to you.
  • If there are no records in the superior court, you would be informed of the same and you may ask for a certification to that effect.
  • Request that copies of the record be made. The staff member on duty would then determine your required fee based on the number of pages in the record and the number of copies that you wish.
  • Pay the required fee at the cashier.
  • Return to the records division and present the receipt as proof of payment in order to claim your copy of the record.
