Federal Criminal Court Search

The Federal Criminal Records Search scans across the 94 U.S. federal courts for violations of federal criminal law, including infractions, misdemeanors, and felonies, such as tax evasion, fraud, embezzlement, identity theft, interstate trafficking, and kidnapping.


The Federal Criminal Court Search can be added as an add-on to any of GoodHire's available background check packages.

Reviewing Results

If no records are found, the Federal Criminal Court Search tab will display a clear status.



If there are any records that match the candidate's name and date of birth, they will be displayed in the results tab of the Federal Criminal Court Search. In the collapsed state, each record displays the record source and offender details.


Clicking "Show More Details" at the bottom of each record will expand the record to display the offenses attached, with each offense record containing substantial information about offense type, date, and outcome.


Turnaround Time

Turnaround time ranges from 1 to 3 days.


The records returned will only show convictions and pending cases. You will not see any non-convictions or dismissals on the report. Records will always include the name of the crime, the verdict, and the date of the verdict. Any other information included is optional.

For county or state level crimes, employers will need to purchase a National Criminal Databases Search.
