Just because someone isn’t wearing a ring doesn’t mean they’re not married – and other clues are often hard to come by. That’s why – every day – someone inadvertently gets into a relationship with someone who’s married. Perhaps they’ve made no mention of their past, or perhaps they claim they’re divorced when they’re not. It may not be until weeks or months later that an unsuspecting partner is blindsided by this news – and it can be devastating.
Whether you’re concerned for yourself – or concerned for a friend or family member entering a relationship with someone – you can easily put your mind at ease or confirm your suspicions with an instant public records background check. Both marriage and divorce records are a matter of public record and are registered with the relevant county record. Using someone’s name and a current or recent city & state of residence, an instant background check will pull any marriage and divorce records from county governments – nationwide. So, you can find out definitively if someone is married (or truly divorced) – even if the marriage record is in a completely different state:
In addition to the marriage records and divorce records, you’ll also receive criminal convictions, bankruptcies, liens and other judgments. Even if the marriage status doesn’t bother you, there’s always the concern that someone who isn’t up front with their marital status could be hiding other, more serious issues from their past.
And, while there’s no definitive way to determine if someone might be involved in multiple relationships, you’ll also receive an address history, associated phone numbers and a list of other people associated with those addresses and phone numbers with a background check, which might give you an idea of their past (and possibly current) partners. There are also options to run a reverse phone number search, so if you’ve seen a particular number pop up on your significant others phone, you can anonymously trace even unlisted numbers back to their source.
The best case scenario for running an instant background check is that your suspicions will be cleared away. The “worst” case scenario is that you find out someone isn’t exactly who they say they are and potentially save yourself some heartache. It’s even possible that your (potential) partner might have a reasonable explanation for what you discover that keeps the door open for a relationship. Whether it’s for you or on behalf of someone you care about, an instant background check is almost always money well spent regardless of the outcome.
