Getting Criminal Histories
As a Kentucky background check resource, the Administrative Office of the Courts is quite helpful for getting copies of anyone's criminal background files. They are available to the public as long as you fill out the proper forms and pay the $10 fee. Their collection of records includes 5 years of minor offences and felonies from 1978 until the present.
Kentucky doesn't keep vital records confidential, so you can order marriage or divorce records on anyone you wish. This makes the Vital Statistics office a very good Kentucky background check resource. You can order copies for a fee, or use the vital records database search of the University of Kentucky's website for a free browse at the index to see if someone has been married or divorced in the past. You can also search for birth or death records if they have background information you need.
