Online County Background check

✓ First, create an account by entering your email and a password and clicking "create account".  

✓ When you are signed in, you will be prompted to read some disclosure statements regarding your rights surrounding your background check.  

✓ Next you will begin entering your information.  

✓ You only need to enter your address history for the past 7 years.  

✓ When filling in the address history, it will not let you proceed if there are any gaps in time between addresses.

✓ For instance, the move in date you list for your current address must be the move out date of your previous address.  

✓ At the end it will ask if there are any documents you'd like to upload. Please ignore this and click continue.
