returned to them from NBCI, they the applicant can then
send the authenticated document to the U.S. Department of State
in Washington, DC to be apostilled.

that receives the DOCE response with the FBI seal and Section
Chief signature via the pdf attachment, then you are receiving
an authenticated response. If an applicant needs an apostille,
they must take the authenticated document to the U.S. Department
of State in Washington, DC for further action".

i .For review and correction purposes, to challenge
the information on the record, and/or other
court related matters.
National Background Check, Inc. and our
FBI Channeling service has the ability to provide any United

request a copy of their personal FBI criminal background check.
Federal regulation permits that you can request a copy for personal
review, to challenge the information, for court related matters
or other personal reasons. If you are requesting your FBI criminal
background check to challenge the information, once our FBI Channeling
service has returned the results, any questions about the information
should be directed to the FBI. If you are requesting a copy of
your FBI criminal background check for court related matters,
an attorney is permitted to receive the results. In order for
an attorney to receive the background check, the request must
be submitted on the attorney's letterhead with both the individual
and the attorney signatures and a release statement indicating
the applicant is aware that the FBI background check results
are being returned to the attorney.

required for immigration purposes or when applying to adopt a
child. In order to help meet this requirement, National Background

paperwork necessary for a successful adoption or immigration
