Fortunately with today’s technology you have access to billions of records online. You can check up on yourself, or do background checks on someone else.
You can check court records, divorce reports, property reports and the list goes on and on.
Unfortunately in today’s world these checks are extremely important. You can’t hire someone if they have a criminal history. You shouldn’t marry someone if they’re not fully divorced.
Basically, you don’t really know someone until you’ve done a full check up on them. These are public records so you’re not invading their privacy. You’re just double checking.
Double checking is the safe thing to do when hiring a babysitter, or letting your children spend the night at other people’s houses.
It’s best to be safe and verify who you’re really dealing with.
