Federal Criminal, State Specific District Court Records Search
Some offenses are violations of Federal law as opposed to state or local law. Record of these crimes can be located in the US District Courts. Each state has at least one US District Court, while others are divided into as many as four districts in separate geographical regions. Federal violations generally will not appear in either a county or statewide criminal check. Only a small percentage of criminal cases are violations of Federal law. Examples of Federal offenses can be kidnapping, drug trafficking, interstate transportation of stolen goods, bank robbery, murder and embezzlement, just to name a few.
This search is the same as the search above, (See above: Federal Criminal, State Specific District Court Records Search), except that it is not state specific. There are 94 federal judicial districts, including at least one district in each state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, and three territories of the United States — the Virgin Islands, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands. This search covers all 94 federal judicial districts.
Our Nationwide Criminal Database Search is the most comprehensive instant state criminal search on the market. NationSearch pulls database information from a multitude of data sources, and combines the information in an easy to read format. The data sources query over 850 million records from a variety of public record sources, such as sex offender registries, arrest records, county court records, Department of Correction records and municipality data records.
Once this data has been pulled, it goes to our criminal department’s quality assurance component who in turn, thoroughly dissect the data, removing any information that is not pertinent to the search, and/or the individual being screened. This quality assurance procedure takes place prior to any information being disseminated to our client.
Please be advised that each state, county, city, and sex offender registry releases only information that meets their individual practices and protocols of release. Identifiers will vary by each data source, and as a result this data source should not be the sole determining factor for placement. A comprehensive criminal search or a county search should also be included.
This search is our most utilized search due to its all-encompassing nature.

Alias SearchAny one, and/or all of our searches can be conducted using an alias. An alias is described in the dictionary as an assumed name, a nick name, a false name used to conceal one’s identity, A.K.A. (also known as), fake name, etc.
It’s another name that you may use that isn’t your legal or given name. Many authors and celebrities use an alias because they don’t like their birth name. Lots of criminals use an alias because they don’t want to be caught.
The term “alias” in the background screening industry can mean simply a woman’s maiden name. It’s any name other than the name given at birth, or through marriage. (i.e. Mary Smith, A.K.A. Mary Jones (maiden name), or Mary Jones-Smith.
Alias names can be used for sinister purposes, or be as simple as names you have acquired through life, that you or others have given you due to personality traits, or through describing you in some physical manner, etc……usually referred to as nicknames. (i.e. Bubba, Lovey, Andrew vs. Andy, Chris vs. Christopher). Sometimes a person prefers to be called by their middle name. Therefore, the name on their SSN card and their drivers license might be their given name, i.e. Mary Elizabeth Jones-Smith. The person actually prefers to be called Liz, an abbreviation of her middle name. There are numerous “alias” names that would need to be searched in this case, in order to perform a thorough and comprehensive background screening. It is up to the client as to how many of these name combinations we actually screen.
