How Much Does a Background Check Cost?

The cost of a background check varies depending on how much is being investigated.

A county court criminal background check usually costs $15-$20, and includes misdemeanors, felonies, offense date, case number, and arrest information.

A statewide criminal background check typically runs $10-$20. This type of report includes address history, age, misdemeanors, felonies, offense date, case number, arrest history, and offense description.

Since a comprehensive nationwide database isn't available to the public, most national background checks search each state's online databases. These types of criminal background checks usually cost $25-$45.

Checking SSN verification and sex offender status are generally $0-$10, since that information is more widely available.
