Conducting a background check on yourself in Michigan may seem like a silly thing to do because who knows you better than yourself? In some cases, say, if you’ve got a lengthy criminal history that’s hard to keep up with,  it may be hard to remember it all.  It is common for everyone to have a background check conducted at one point or another in their life.  In Michigan, it is routine for some companies to run a background check. Employers, renting and leasing agents, attorneys, and lenders may all seek information about your personal background with good reason.  Here at ASG, we offer the opportunity to create a professional background check on yourself that can be held up to the highest standards.  Conducting a background check on yourself before others allows you to see what information about yourself is out there—our services include a background check profile conducted by trained private investigators that includes all information we have located on you.

In situations where you are asked to provide a background check on yourself, you may feel overwhelmed with where to begin.

You will be provided with a detailed profile of your history that will allow you to see what information about you is visible and accessible. It will prepare you when applying for jobs, preparing to enter into lease agreements, or even before you have a BAR Character and Fitness exam. Knowing what information is out there is key to being able to create a formal response to any questions a company could ask you regarding your background check.
