Savvy professionals today are doing their homework. While background investigations for the purpose of pre-employment screening are more important than ever, many have realized that it’s smart to check out anyone they plan to partner with in any way, be it in business or their personal lives.

Profiles on an individual’s professional, educational and personal background have become invaluable.

Are you hiring an employee, nanny or other domestic?  Renting a property?  Are you planning a lawsuit and want to know if it’s a worthwhile pursuit, and where the assets are now?  Have you or a loved one begun a romance?  Never before has the need to know the character of prospective tenants, employees or business associates been so vital. In addition, many people are now meeting via dating services or on the internet. The best thing that you can do is to confirm that your new friend or romantic interest is who they say they are, both for your safety and your peace of mind.
