A Background Check Won't Lie About Who's Coming Home For the Holidays

The holidays are a time of family gatherings, a time for traveling long distances to come home and reconnect with family members. There's always news to share, sometimes even a fiancée or a new spouse to introduce to the family. A long absent family member may surprise everyone with an unexpected reappearance. Sometimes, family gatherings can be stressful. A custody agreement can mean sending children with an ex, knowing nothing about the people the children will be around. Asking questions may get answers, but a professional complete background check gets truth.

As much as you'd like to believe that the new fiancée is kind, hard-working and honest (despite the OG-style neck tattoo), that the cousin you haven't seen in ages finally beat his drug addiction, or that the family of your ex's new live-in are a wholesome, trustworthy bunch, sometimes there's a nagging doubt that just won't go away. Asking isn't likely to resolve it and we are always advocates of honoring your gut instincts.

Use a complete background check to find out the truth about the people in your life

The fiance isn't going to say he's still gang connected, the cousin isn't going to announce he's hoping to hustle big money to pay dope debts, and the ex may not even know the family his/her new live-in partner invited for the holidays includes registered sex offenders. You need a professional investigator to get those sorts of truths.
