Free background checks are not available in Wisconsin. Websites that claim to offer free background checks require users to create a user account and sign up for a subscription at a monthly cost. Examples of these websites include freebackgroundcheck.org and freebackgroundcheckusa.com.
Although it is not possible to obtain a comprehensive free background check in Wisconsin, there are resources containing readily available public information which citizens can utilize to find pertinent information on a particular person. For example, the Wisconsin Circuit Court website, wcca.wicourts.gov, can search statewide or by county for many types of court cases in Wisconsin, including civil, criminal, traffic, family or probate.
