How can I perform a full public records check on someone?


What is a public record?

A public record is a document, drafted by the government, often pertaining to a specific individual. Nearly every person in the United States possesses many public records, ranging from driving records, to incarceration records. Every one of these is legally available for the public to access, hence the name “public record”.

Notably, the United States government only drafts a public record for someone when they first do something that would be pertinent to that public record. Only people convicted guilty of a crime possess a criminal record, for instance. However, every instance relevant to that public record is attached to the same document. If you’ve been arrested on multiple occasions, all of them will be found within your arrest record.

How can I find all of someone’s public records check?

Most public records can be acquired at whatever institution first issued them. The DMV where you took your first driving test will almost certainly be able to access your full driving record, and the police department that received a warrant for your arrest will likely possess it still. However, if you’re looking to obtain every public record for a single person, it’s unreasonable to expect you to bounce around between every possible agency that may have drafted a public record for someone. County courthouses often serve as hubs for many public records, but it’s important to note that many of them can be slow, and may require extremely specific requests for each kind of public record a person can possess.

How can I find all of someone’s public records easily?

The easiest and most inclusive way to obtain all of someone’s public records is to utilize an online public records database. Services like SpyFly have access to billions of public records, all of them accessible through an intuitive search engine. All you need to begin searching is the full name of the person you’re inquiring about, as well as the state they live in, and results should be popping up in moments. 

If you’re searching for someone with a rather common name, like “John Jackson”, fret not. SpyFly provides you with identification details about that person, including any pictures attached to their public record, assisting you in narrowing your search down to the correct person.

Importantly, SpyFly is completely confidential. They do not report to anyone of your search, including the person you’re investigating, allowing you to be comfortably anonymous whilst you browse public records.

SpyFly provides consumers affordable, immediate access to public record information.
