Employers, property owners and creditors often conduct background checks to determine whether they’re comfortable working with or renting to someone. If you have a criminal history, you might be missing opportunities that can improve your life—all because people are judging you based on a piece of paper that’s no longer relevant to who you are.
An Illinois Background Check Can Help You Move Forward
If you’re like many people with criminal histories, you’ve made serious changes in your life. You’re not the same person you were when you made those mistakes.
You’d like a fresh start, and you certainly deserve one.
But if you’re like most people, you don’t even know where to begin.
Not everyone is eligible for a fresh start under Illinois law. The only way to find out if you’re eligible is through a criminal background check. Illinois is very strict when it comes to qualifying for expungement and sealing, so it’s important to find out whether you’re eligible before you get your hopes up.
How to Get an Illinois Criminal Background Check
Many people have a difficult time conducting their own Illinois criminal background check, and it’s not their fault. The state doesn’t make it a simple process.
Because there are different forms for different types of background checks, and because those forms can vary between counties, most people find that it’s easier to have a lawyer handle the process. However, if you do choose to work with a background check lawyer, you need to make sure that you’re working with one who’s familiar with the process in your county.
