Is it legal to do a personal background check on someone without their permission?

Yes. Unlike employment and credit related background checks that are governed by the FCRA,

(and require written permission from the subject of the check) no permission is required to conduct a

NON-FCRA background check for personal reasons. Nevertheless, our firm may refuse a background check request if we feel a request is dubious.


Do you need a private investigator’s license to conduct a background check? Presently, the State of Rhode Island doesn’t require a specific license for a company conducting Personal Background Screenings. However, Queen of Hearts Screening services is a licensed Rhode Island Private Investigator (#PI1658), which gives our clientele an extra layer or protection and professionalism.
