A general background investigation is one that, if successful, allows you to have better understanding as to the credibility and the credentials of either a person or business.

The purpose for this type of investigation has to be for legal reasons and must be based upon a need for that information to allow you to make a decision and have a better understanding of the subject of your inquiry. The term general background is used in the broadest sense and can include an investigation into your spouse, business partner or employee, where suspicious activities and concerns have caused you to question their integrity and trust.
