Which check is for me?

For clients seeking limited data on other individuals such as criminal history or sex offender status.  These checks do not include protected personal data such as address history or phone numbers.

Clients who provide proof of identity can obtain information to help understand what information others (such as a potential employer) might find.  Often, our clients appreciate an understanding of “what is out there”, and many use this service to clarify address history and dates for employment or rental applications.

This report is for attorneys who provide proof of licensure and need for protected information; ViaFact will provide information such as address history, contact information, and social security numbers, to assist with your case.  We do not perform confirmed locations services at this time, though more often than not, information provided in these reports reflect current status.

We’ve helped solve hundreds of cases, providing exceptional client service through the entire process.  Your success story starts here.

I signed up to have ViaFact locate my step family that I have not seen for 49 years. With in 24 hours they delivered information that I had requested. I highly recommend ViaFact. They have great pricing and the bottom line….THEY DELIVER. Great service! Thanks ViaFact!



I needed help with a family matter and was not disappointed. Service was excellent all-around, very affordable and the information provided exceeded my expectations. ViaFact will be my first choice in the future when I need the services of a private investigator.



I asked ViaFact to find a friend of mine I had lost touch with for 20 years. Her family had moved away when I was 11, just broke my heart. I’ve tried over the years. With the use of social media, but never could. Within an hour of my request ViaFact had found her! We are reconnecting after 20 years and I never thought it would happen. I’m so thankful ♡
