Understanding Background Checks


Whenever you apply for a job, a loan, a new home, or even a gun, you’re going to have to undergo a background check. You may not give this too much thought, especially if you have a clean record, but it’s still good to know what shows up on your background check . . . and what doesn’t.

  • Felonies and misdemeanor arrests and convictions appear on criminal background checks.
  • Any convictions more than 7 years old will not appear.
  • Any arrests and convictions as a juvenile should not show, as those lines are sealed upon turning 18.
  • Convictions where a pardon was granted will not appear.

Having points on your criminal record should not be the deciding factor as to whether or not you get a loan or a job. Plenty of people with criminal histories can find great employment and beautiful homes. Don’t let your criminal background, if you even have one, bring you down.
