Getting personal records as a Maine background check resource will work best if you are the other person's relative. All vital records (birth, death, marriage, divorce) are restricted to family members only for 100 years. You can get copies if you are permitted through the Vital Records office in Augusta, and you will have to pay a fee and provide documentation about your relationship to the individual on the record.
Criminal Record Checks
On the other hand, a better Maine background check resource is the State Police. There are no restrictions on getting copies of someone's criminal history (both adult and juvenile offences). The Maine Criminal History Record website allows you to make searches online, but you have to have a credit card to pay the $30 fee for each request. For other types of court records, you can get files from the State Archives.
