State and County Public Information Sources

State and county government offices are excellent sources of information.  You may need to contact the Clerk of Courts in specific counties.

You can do a Background Search, yourself.

If you are willing to do some research, you can do your own Background Search .  Your results will depend on the details:
What information do you want?
How much work are you willing to do to get it?
How fast do you want it?

See:  How to Do a Background Search at BackgroundSearch.com
