After you have had your criminal record expunged, sealed, set aside or otherwise cleared by the court, private background check companies may still be reporting your criminal record to potential employers or landlords. To help solve this problem, RecordGone.com has formed an exclusive partnership with BackgroundChecks.com to help clear criminal records from over 650 private background check companies.
“Don't wait until you have lost your dream job! Take the proactive steps to update your criminal background check within fourteen days, as opposed to the months or years that it can take.”
While clearing your record at the court is a necessary first step towards ensuring your record no longer appears on a background check, private background check companies do not regularly update their information after they originally receive it from the court. These companies are not legally required to update their databases on any specific schedule. However, if they are notified that the court has expunged, sealed, or otherwise updated the case, they are required to update their information in a timely manner. Unless this proactive step is taken to request they update their information, it could take months or even years for the information to be updated or removed. Our Expedited Record Clearance Update helps ensure that outdated and damaging information will not show up on background checks performed by private companies.
The Expedited Record Clearance Update (ERCU) service will dramatically speed up the process of having your criminal record updated or removed from over 650 private background check companies that are commonly used by employers, landlords, and financial and educational institutions. This is the best way to update the most companies in one single step to ensure that your record has been updated to accurately reflect the court's order.
* If your criminal record was cleared in multiple states, there is an additional charge of $50 per state.
** We charge an additional $100 if you do not have your granted court order. Please also note that if this is the case, the entire process may take longer due to the research involved.
While you have done everything possible to clean up your record with the court and state agencies, inaccurate information is very likely still being maintained and distributed by private background check companies. Taking action to update or remove this data is the only way to be sure that outdated and damaging information will not be distributed to potential employers or landlords.
ERCU removes or updates your criminal record that is held by private background check companies. The type of update completed (whether the information is removed or just updated) depends on the type of relief the court granted. This service will ensure that your record is reflected correctly according to the law of that state.
While ERCU targets background check companies commonly used by employers and landlords, it is not designed to reach websites that post information easily available to the public on the internet. If you are interested in removing your private, personal information (including your criminal record) from popular background check websites, please read about our background check removal service.
We will provide you with a promotional code for a free nationwide background check from Backgroundchecks.com ($39.95 retail value) in your Final Packet. You may use this code to verify the record has been removed or updated at the conclusion of the service.
