Attorney Requests

US Attorney General directives and FBI guidelines allow National Background Information to send an applicant's FBI Criminal Report, aka "rap sheet", directly to their defense attorney's office.

To order an official FBI criminal history record for one of your clients, have them complete the FBI Criminal Report Request and Mailing Checklist forms.

A release of information must be printed on attorney letterhead and signed by the applicant and attoreny. Please use this FBI approved Attorney Release template.

Payment for an attorney request of a client's personal FBI Criminal Report can be by cashier's check, money order or credit card. Discounts and monthly billing are available to law offices with sufficient volume. Please contact us for more information.
