How long will the background check take to complete?
An extensive, professional background check contains many different components and each component has its own timeframe. For example, it can take 3-4 days for our professional legal researcher to visit a courthouse, examine all pertinent criminal records and send the report back to us. Our goal is to complete a background check within 4-6 business days after we receive the release and driver’s license copy from the candidate. Our experience has been that most delays occur when the nanny candidate is slow to return the background authorization. For this reason, we urge all families to order the background check as soon as your candidate has accepted your offer of employment.
