If you are hoping for personal records from a West Virginia background check resource, you are going to be quite restricted. All types of vital records (marriage, divorce, birth, death) are confidential except to immediate family members or descendants. If that is the case, you can order copies for $12 each from the Health Statistics Center.
Getting Criminal Backgrounds
An alternative West Virginia background check resource is the State Police. They do their background checks through L1 Enrollment services and their webpage outlines the procedure. It is a fingerprint-based system and you can only request your own files unless you are an authorized employer doing hiring screens. For non-criminal issues, you can access court records that are open to the public. There is an online search tool and you can search by name through the Court Clerk's office.
