October 16, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 


FBI Apostilled Criminal Background Check

What is An Apostille?
An apostille is a certification that a document has been “legalized” or “authenticated” by the issuing agency through a process in which various seals are placed on the document. In the United States (U.S.) the Secretary of State and the Deputy Secretary of State of the individual U.S. states provides the Apostille. The FBI Apostilled Criminal Background Check is an example of such a certification service.

Does the FBI Provide Apostilles?
Yes, FBI Apostilled Criminal Background Checks are now provided. The Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) will authenticate U.S. Department of Justice Order 556-73 fingerprint search results for international requests by placing the FBI seal and the signature of a division official on the results if requested at the time of submission. Documents prepared in this way may then be sent to the U.S. Department of State by the requestor to obtain an apostille if necessary. This procedure became effective on January 25, 2010 and will apply only to documents finalized after that date. Requests to authenticate previously processed results will not be accepted.


FD-258 Fingerprint Card Service

The FBI FD-258 Ink Fingerprint Card can be download from the FBI’s website. This “PDF” version is only acceptable by the FBI in regards for those requesting a personal record review (aka FBI Identification Record). For those that prefer to be fingerprinted on an actual “hard card” can schedule an appointment (or walk-in) at designated CAL-LIVE’s fingerprinting locations.


How To Obtain Your FBI Apostilled Criminal Background Check

The CJIS Division centralizes criminal justice information and provides accurate and timely information and services to local, state, federal, and international law enforcement agencies, the private sector, academia, and other government agencies. The requesting applicant of their own FBI Apostilled Criminal Background Check (certified identification record) may obtain a copy thereof by submitting a written request to the CJIS. The request for the FBI Apostilled Criminal Background Check must be accompanied by satisfactory proof of identity (consisting of name, date and place of birth, and a set of roll-inked fingerprint impressions) and a certified check or money order for the $18.00 processing fee.

You MUST also enclose a note stating that you want a FBI Apostilled Criminal Background Check, basically you are asking that your FBI Certificate “Authenticated” in order to get the Apostille. If you get the FBI Criminal Background Check back and it is not authenticated (notarized), you’ll have to send it back to the FBI with another request of obtaining a FBI Apostilled Criminal Background Check.

Live Scan Request Form, What is Live Scan

What is a Live Scan Request Form?

A Live Scan Request Form is used to capture an applicant’s information along with the requesting agency in order to process criminal background check. The Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) are the two primary government agencies conducting such criminal back ground checks.
 

Live Scan Request Form

What is Live Scan Fingerprinting?

At California Live Scan Centers, we routinely get questions such as, “What is Live Scan?” Individuals seeking employment, obtaining a professional license, applying for adoption, or even just want to see (or not see) what information is on their criminal background check are candidates for Live Scan Fingerprinting.
 

Well you ask, what is Live Scan Fingerprinting?

Live Scan fingerprinting is a computerized process whereby an applicants fingerprints are digital captured (electronically scanned) and immediately transmitted securely via a specialized computer terminal to agencies as the DOJ, FBI, or other authorized receiving agency. Now, the digital fingerprints, along with the applicant’s identifying information provided on the Live Scan Request form are searched in the government’s data files for matches that reveal whether there is a criminal history record on the applicant.

 
California’s Live Scan Fingerprinting Center’s biometric electronic fingerprinting technology and resources replaces the process of recording an applicant’s fingerprint patterns through a fingerprint rolling process using ink and paper (called FBI Ink Fingerprint Card, FD-258). Rolled ink fingerprints have been smudged through handling and mailing, causing an applicant’s ink fingerprints to become illegible and rejected. Another issue was the slow process of conducting a criminal background check clearance, taking a long as a few months to complete. Whereas the a Live Scan process can provide results within days if not sooner.
