A countywide civil search researches a specific county for liens, judgments, civil cases and bankruptcies that may be listed in the applicant records. This search is conducted by exact name and date of birth. We may need to also verify the applicants address and/or middle initial depending on the information stored in the civil records. This is a county level search for civil court records. Civil records are generally divided between the upper and the lower courts based on the monetary amount of the claim. Alliance will always search both the upper and lower courts for our clients. Civil records contain records of lawsuits, small claims, and judgments, and other money related matters.
