FAQs And Resources

What is the standard turnaround time for criminal record checks? For full employment background reports?
Associated Services has great relationships with county records clerks, and as a result, over 70% of our criminal record orders are completed within the first 24 hours; 92% within 48 hours.

Full employment background checks are processed on a rush basis, with most reports being completed within 48 to 72 hours. Some former employers and schools, however, require a written authorization, which may take additional time.

How do I place an order and receive background reports through Associated Services?
Most of our clients use our web-based ordering system to place background requests. However, we will also gladly accept orders via fax or e-mail. Completed reports can be returned to you using any of these delivery systems.
