What Are Premarital Background Checks?
Premarital background checks are also known as prenuptial background checks or prenuptial investigations. These are typically checks that involve looking into the personal information, professional, and even the financial information of an individual in question. The weight of these checks may vary, given the concerns of a client, information disclosure laws by the local authority and state, and what is discovered about the party being investigated.
Who Can Initiate a Premarital Background Check?
Potential spouses often seek such premarital background checks. Other parties, such as family members and close friends, may also request such prenuptial background checks if they find it appropriate. Sometimes, such checks can also be initiated by business partners or other people with financial interests in a subject, who may want to know whether the union will affect their financial interests.

Meeting with a Private Investigator
Once you have contacted us, we will have one of our certified private investigators contact you via phone to discuss the purpose and objectives of the investigation and therefore collect essential information concerning the case. During the phone call, the private investigator will expect you to provide as much personal information about the subject as possible. Our private investigator might ask the following questions:
- What is your relationship with the individual being investigated?
- For how long have you been familiar with the subject? Do you live in the same house?
- Do you have any reasons that may convince you that the subject is hiding something about their life from you?
- Do you believe that the subject owes debts or owns property that they may not want you to know?
Once you make it clear that the investigation can start, our private investigator will kick off the process by performing a premarital check. Prenuptial background checks include activities such as:
- Identification verification, incusing aliases.
- Criminal history: This includes checks to verify whether the individual has been charged with any crime or convicted for any illegal activities. This may include a Sex offender database query, warrants and wants query, or an incarceration record.
- Marriage/ Divorce record: This tells whether the subject has been married in the past. Records may show if the subject has had domestic criminal charges in the past or any civil cases.
- Property, Assets, and Liability Records: to provide sufficient details of the subject’s financial state, as well as searching for any judgments, liens, or garnishments that could affect the marriage.
- Court Records: Finding out whether the subject has had any civil cases, and if they have, the outcome of the lawsuit. Such searches include criminal and civil court history on a local, state, and federal level.
