How does US Search work?

US Search offers some free services and paid premium services. The company uses a proprietary search engine to comb through billions of public records, websites and other sources. You can search by a person’s name to find their current and past addresses, phone number, household members and home value; search by phone to find name, address, utility verification and more. You can also find names associated with specific addresses.

When you enter a name, US Search generates a free report that includes basic information like relatives, age and location history. The paid subscription includes extended data searches for further details, including social media accounts, sex offender data, criminal records, images, friends, financial assets, court records and contact information. You can choose from instant search reports, advanced person searches or background checks.

US Search provides additional information for extra fees. When you sign up, your report is available for instant online viewing with the option to download and print.

A paid US Search subscription includes unlimited person and phone searches for $19.95 per month or $49.85 per quarter. Additional services require other fees; for instance, access to national criminal records costs $19.95, marriage and divorce records cost $2.95 and email address information costs $2.95. A trial membership is $1.99.

      I needed an address verification service to update my clients' addresses for holiday cards. It delivered 100% what I needed. I believe my holiday cards will have a much lower rate of return-to-sender this year as a result of my updated addresses. Plus it's easier to stay in contact with my current and former clients. Thank you, US Search.

      This report gave me all the information I needed to realize all the property my uncle owned was suppose to be given to me from my father's will. I was suppose to inherit that property. My uncle kept it all! What a vulture my uncle was. I trusted my uncle when he said my father had nothing for my brothers and I. What a sack of **.

      Jason was wonderful. He listened to my questions and asked questions to see more accurately what my needs were. He was patient, courteous, and extremely helpful. I'm not tech savvy and he was so supportive!! He guided me to where I can see the information on the website. He was extremely patient with my detailed questions.

      A friend recommended this site for our high school class reunion. It has been a blast finding friends that I have not talked to in years. This is our 50th and it's big. I just talked to Adrian and he was delightful and very helpful. There was a girl I talked to when I first signed up and she was delightful also. Great staff! Great site! Great fun!!! I will be referring your site when I can. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR DOING WHAT YOU DO!

      I was able to have a short term subscription with USSEARCH and had success in finding some folks who had left our area. When I decided to close the account, it went smoothly just by making contact by phone. The agent even suggested to let me run the account out for the remainder of the month as there were many remaining days left on my account. I would recommend their services.

      When I called to cancel my subscription the service member was very polite and helpful. He did offer products to help me stay but I only needed the service for one thing and was finished with my search. My only disappointment was the search on myself was inaccurate.
