Q: Verify your Texas criminal record search
by OpenPublicRecords
A:There are many of us which are not absolutely sure of what records show up in our background. Are citations showing, details of severe infractions such as DUI or reckless driving. Which court records show up? The more a person thinks about it, the less they are sure of what may appear.

It isn’t hard to search your own records, many of us do to check before applying for employment. Some need to clear their records or eliminate erroneous entries. The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) offers a public criminal database for public use. It is low cost at only $3 per credit, which is the cost for one name search. The fee can add up if you need to search for additional names, regardless whether of the same person or not. What the DPS also offers is a list of employers which have ordered their criminal history checks. The list includes small as well as larger firms. Looking at the companies which are listed, one can't help but notice that some of the names are data providers, retail and wholesale. Some of the largest names in data collection and providers are listed having purchased reports from the DPS. These companies are the source of information for multitude of other companies.

Once the record is out, it's out there and DPS no longer has control. They also do not have control over the interpretation of such records. However, reputable firms update their data often to reflect expungements or corrections that were recently made. www.open-public-records.com/texas_public_records.htm lists this service under Texas Criminal Records: Felony and misdemeanor cases which goes to the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) public criminal database.

Q: What is the statute of limitations on bounced checks in Texas?
by Barbara McCurry
A:The Texas statutes are freely available online for anyone to look up. There's a query page that allows you to search by key terms. It may be frustrating, but once the right terms are used, the work is mostly done. Helps tremendously if familiar with the right terminology such as 'instrument' or if it is considered forgery or fraud or whatever the right term which needs to be used.

Q: Why doesn't the arrest record show up in the background search? Bexar county, TX
by adam mcbride
A:This happens with many that order a background check after they see or hear of an individual’s arrest. It takes time for the record to appear if at all. In most cases, records are not instantly recorded and provided to the public. Another reason is that the arrest may need to result in a conviction to appear. All of this takes time. If you see an individual that has been recently arrested, you can still see all of the previous offenses based on the criminal history search.

Q: Who is the national dealers association?
by eli martin
A:Texas claims to be pro business, but have been resisting sales of Tesla’s cars in their state. Texas! Pro business?? Only if their special interest groups approve, and their supported legislatures.
by ed reeves
A:This is a typical bully tactic from a special interest group. Who are they to claim themselves as a consumer protection advocate? Since when is National Automobile Dealers Association concerned with consumer protections? Is that they usually do, or are they for the interest of dealers which pay dues. Without these dues, they would probably not exist, so they will go after anyone, regardless of right or wrong, as long as they maintain their influence with legislatures.

by david albon
A:The National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) is claiming that they’re protecting the consumer by having dealerships sell Tesla autos. Since when did dealers protect the consumer? Would like to hear from anyone which has experienced a time where a dealer came to protect their customers and from what? Is this even a valid claim?
by CAdreamer
A:If you're wondering who special interest groups are and what they do, this is a great story to model after. Power over the legislation from a special interest group versus an entrepreneur. Many special interest groups are not for open and free markets, only to give an advantage to the ones they represent.
by alice nardon
A:It’s actually the “National Automobile Dealers Association”. They represent the interests of automobile dealers, a special interest group. They are lobbies for the dealers that have been trying to stifle Elon Musk’s efforts to sell his Tesla automobiles in states where their dealers are complaining. According to published reports, dealers have spent over $86 billion in nine years on state elections and almost $54 billion in federal elections. Texas, Arizona and New Jersey are still keeping Tesla automobiles from being sold in their state.

Q: Do you have to be a direct descendent to qualify in requesting Death certificates?
by anms
A:Are the steps the same when requesting other vital records, marriage, birth and divorce?
by pt
A:The safeguards are in place for identity theft and fraud. It is definitely easier if you are a direct descendent. Some agencies will ask to see proof of the person’s relationship to the deceased before allowing the request for the death certificate to be approved. There are certain cutoff dates, usually records which qualify as archives, where the requestor’s relation to the deceased no longer matters.
by gene
A:No, not necessarily, you don’t in many cases. There are private companies that the state in which you want to make the request has for the public to use. Much of it has to do where the request in being made, whether from HHS, health department, vital records offices, county recorders.....

Q: how can i view a death certificate of someone who passed in 2008 in sulphur springs
by lola
A:Death certificates are considered vital records. There are couple of possible places available to the public for requesting them. The state's vital records offices issues death certificates, there is a private service many state governments suggest to use also. Several factors can make a big difference, such as if you're related, or if you are the spouse, are you one of the children, or is it just an individual private request. Spouse and the descendants will usually have an easier time. Another factor is that whether you need just the information or an official certified copy. The purpose of your request can dictate whether you will need a certified copy or just an informational record.

Q: What's an easy and simple way to check on a business in Gunter?
by alice
A:Regardless of where the entity is located, in this case in Gunter, TX, you can check the Better Business Bureau. Once the business is accredited by the BBB, you can see the rating, how long they have been accredited, a customer complaint history/summary of issues pertaining to advertising and sales, billing and collections, problems with product or services they've offered, delivery, guarantee and warranty complaints. In addition to number of complaints of the aforementioned, there are notes entered of the business pertaining to its products and services, licensing. Thereafter you can look up a board for more licensing information. You may have to conduct the search few different ways to verify the business if you don't initially find it. For example, when I was looking up a particular plumbing service, the business name did not appear in the licensing. Thereafter, I searched under the plumber's name himself and found it. Even though the search fields allow a user to conduct the search by business names. This type of search can be done online freely as many times as you'd like and will end up offering plenty of information.

Q: How can an employer tell if the employee is utilizing illicit drugs?
by benjamin
A:Here and some telling signs to help. According to NIDA, persons using illegal drugs will have short periods of employment or have a pattern of going from one job to another. They ten to be late and miss work more often than usual, specially on Mondays. Weekends offer open time to binge and often the person would not have recovered in time to go to work on Mondays. Less productive and their counterparts and co-workers. They tend to me more likely to be involved in workplace accidents and file workmen's compensation.

Q: With all the drugs readily available, legal as well as illegal, how do I as an employer take the proper precautions before hiring?
by greg.ebel
A:Many drug testing background checks are requested from employers that are expecting their new hires to drive. The National Institute on Drug Abuse http://www.drugabuse.gov/related-topics/drug-testing/drug-free-workplace-resources shows that three out of four employees are illicit drug users. Implementing a drug free workplace can save on insurance costs also.
by naj
A:You can do what a lot of larger companies are known for doing which is drug testing/screening. You don't need to be a large company or be a government department to drug screen job applicants. There are services an individual private employer can find online to conduct the search regardless of the businesses' size. The job applicant will be asked to go to a nearby center for collection of urine, saliva, hair and test for drugs, alcohol and/or a physical exam. Some services also offer random testing conducted by them. If you already have employees, there are ways in which you can implement a drug testing program.

by hrv
A:There are two Texas government agencies that can provide divorce records. The Texas Department of State Health Services provides marriage and divorce verifications. These for divorces from 1968 and later. These are divorce verifications only, not the decree http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/Vital_Statistics/Verification_of_a_Marriage_or_Divorce.aspx. For a decree, you would need to go to the district clerk's office where the divorce occurred. This site allows the public free access to case records online http://www.co.nueces.tx.us/odyssey/PublicAccess/default.aspx. You can search by party name, attorney or case number if you have it.
by al

Q: Can an employer run a background check based on your social security number?
by jake
A:There are generally 2 ways in which these background checks are conducted, fingerprints and name with the date of birth. The fingerprint based search is an accurate search as fingerprints are unique to an individual as opposed to a name and a date of birth. Also, the fingerprint based search tells you that law enforcement is where the records are coming from. The SSN may still reveal records, in many situations it is used for records connected to credit, financial and sometimes as a form of ID when benefits are involved, verification of identity and so forth. The SSN is not used very often when looking up criminal records. Don’t forget that you know whether you were arrested, charged and convicted or not, so you know where to look. For example, if you were arrested by a certain police agency, you can go to their website and see about requesting an arrest report under your name.

Death verification letters have less requirements, however note that they are not a substitute or the same as an official 'Death Certificate'. If you're an immediate family member living in Texas, the process to obtain the death certificate is about the same as obtaining the verification letter. The Texas Department of State Health Services has a dedicated page for the public looking for birth, death, marriage and divorce records within their vital statistics division.

by shana
A:Look up the papers local to that area. Then go into their archives. This type of research in not too uncommon. There are many reports that need to go back in time and look up old stories. Having the on or about date is most helpful in this type of search. If the publication/newspaper is no longer around, the library close to where this occurred can have it on micro-film or entered in a database.

Q: Look for person named Melody Roach/McCollum/Shelton? (Greenville TX)
by John
A:Another avenue to consider when trying to locate a person and their addresses are with free online property searches. The results may not definitely show the person you’re trying to locate, but this type of search can find information in case the subject of your search has purchased property. An added benefit in some cases is that the name of the spouse can appear as a joint owner. Greenville TX is in Hunt county which offers a real estate/property ownership records online instantly without fees from the county's tax office website. There is also an option to view deed history of the property. Online people finders would be a good preliminary search as you will be able to see relatives and other persons connected with the subject of your search. This can be a big help in making results look on target. In other terms, you can cross reference and see other names appear along with the person you're looking for in other searches. One single search may not suffice as the last names have changed and it is not immediately apparent under which name is the most current. Also, all databases are not equal, some private entities offer sites where you can cross reference the data as well. Since the searches are free and instant, searching as many databases as you can with all names you have found during your search can be equally beneficial.

Q: where was the robbery on January 21, 2013 in Plano Texas at Parker and tollway?
by lisa
A:If the only information that is available to you at this time is the date of the incident, papers local to the area can be an approach worth looking into. Part of the research can be done online, however, when the story in not in the current news, the library may be the next best method in looking up an old story. Past columns can be found at libraries, some with online services depending on the location.

Q: Can anyone help me contact Glen and Kay (Hall) Hallum in Alanreed Texas? we were classmates at Texas Tech in the 60s.
by Dave Olsen
A:A simple people finders search can help you locate the addresses, past or present in some cases. These searches are free and abundant sites offer them can be easily found with a simple navigation of related sites. Consider looking under a maiden name if available. Property records in most states are not difficult to obtain or view online as they are public records. However, some counties may not offer the ease of access as other areas do. Property records can also mention a spouse or other names. If you know other family members' names, the free searches of addresses from private background check companies can help. Since all of the private companies do not operate in the same manner or databases, checking one or two may leave some information unturned. Also, consider conducted two searches simultaneously to cross reference an area under one name versus the other.

Q: Other than criminal records, what else does a background check in Texas show?
by alex
A:Some companies and entities only provide criminal records and still call them background checks. It's essential to look at what is contained in a report prior to ordering? If you are going to use the Texas Department of Public Safety https://records.txdps.state.tx.us/DpsWebsite/Index.aspx you will only get criminal records. If you're interested to find records in addition to criminal history, you can conduct the search yourself or hire a company that offers a more comprehensive check. Marriages and divorces can be requested here http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/vs/. The state's county clerks are the sole providers of certified copies of marriages and district clerks for official divorce decrees. Texas courts http://www.txcourts.gov/ also show divorces from each individual county and more.
