Southland Investigations background checks are completely legal and give you the information you need. Though we are located in Beverly Hills CA. we have investigators all over Los Angeles County and throughout the state. We can also gather court documents from most courthouses across the united states. Please be aware that ALL courthouses are different and play by their own rules. Some courthouses only allow court searches performed on their terminals and others demand you leave a blank check for services and copies. You never know what your going to get when dealing with the government.
These services are ala carte and must be requested as such. If you are unsure of what you need, we suggest a free phone consultation to help dial in your needs. We will also do our best to come up with a budget that is right for you.
We start the assignment with a few online searches to point us in the right direction. Once we have an idea as to where to start, we get started!
1.) Local courthouse Searches (Civil, Criminal, and or divorce)
2.) Search county recorders office
3.) Social media searches (These clearly are performed online and we have special contractors for this)
We prefer to perform all of these searches by hand as online databases ARE NOT ACCURATE and can not be relied upon. Luckily, most courthouses have records available online but again, they might not be updated often or could be the entered incorrectly. There is also a good chance that the courts will not consider them best evidence or not allow them into evidence as the records are not reliable.
Also, we ask you to consider a budget. If these records aren’t terribly important or your in dire need for these records then maybe a smaller budget and searching online databases are for you. If you are in trial or these documents could assist your attorney in a conviction, a dismissal or simply purger the witness. I strongly encourage you to consider the significance of these documents. These documents require a personal touch and should be researched by hand. I’d also suggest in most cases they be certified. Though these fees will add up, you can’t afford not to take these extra steps.
