Background Check Instructions Please note: Effective January 1, 2019 the FBI CJIS Division is implementing a fee revision on fingerprint-based Criminal History Record Information checks from the current fee of $12.00 per request to the new fee of $13.25 per request. Any requests received on or before December 27, 2018 with the current fee ($12.00) will be processed as normal. Requests received on or after December 28, 2018 with the current fee ($12.00) will be returned to sender. We will accept requests received with the revised fee ($13.25) anytime, however the processing will be delayed until after the fee change takes effect. The combined fee for a fingerprint-based state and FBI CHAI check will change the total cost per request from $32.00 to $33.25.
