Q. The Candidate has stayed in multiple addresses. Can we cover all of them in a court record check?

  • It is indeed feasible to perform a court record check on multiple addresses. However, the extent of the check's thoroughness may differ depending on the jurisdictions and the accessibility of records involved. In such cases, conducting a detailed background check across multiple addresses might necessitate extra time and resources.
