Supreme Court Upholds Arizona E-Verify Law

The Supreme Court Thursday ruled in favor of an Arizona law that requires businesses to verify the employment eligibility with E-Verify and to revoke the business licenses of those that deliberately hire illegal immigrants.

E-Verify is a database program that allows employers to check the immigration status of potential hires. It is currently mandatory in some states and for firms that contract with the federal government.

Research Etc., Inc. is a designated E-Verify Employer Agent  - contact us to find out how we can help your business comply with this program. Visit our E-Verify page for more information.

Research Etc., Inc. has assisted professionals, companies and individuals with legal research, background checks and skip tracing.  We have brought together birth families, put service members back in touch and reunited lost loves.  We have helped many groups who organize family, military, and high school reunions.  As licensed Private Investigators, we have access to on-line databases and other resources available only to P.I.s.

Research Etc., Inc. celebrates its 20th Year Anniversary!



May 15, 2015  was a special day for Research Etc., and we are still amazed that the time has passed so quickly. Our work load is varied but never dull, from background searches to company investigations to GPS tracking - but assisting in the sensitive and personal adoption searches brings us the most joy. 

May 3, 2010 - Reunion on KTVK Channel 3 News:

Research Etc. performs adoption searches nationwide.  However, if you were adopted in Arizona, you have the option of using a Confidential Intermediary to perform your search. Kristen and Judy are both Certified Arizona Confidential Intermediaries.  They are experienced in locating and arranging reunions between adult adoptees, birth parents, and adoptive families. As each case is inherently different, our CI's strive to maintain strict confidentiality and sensitivity toward all parties involved.  Please refer to our Confidential Intermediary Page for more information on the Arizona Confidential Intermediary Program.

We have been reuniting families for 20 years-  read our book about our Adoption Search cases:

Back to the Beginning
Remarkable True Stories of Adoption Searches and Reunions
From the Case Files of Research Etc.
Back to the Beginning provides an insightful and often dramatic perspective on adoption searches and reunions. From a daughter seeking to understand the trauma her birthmother went through in relinquishing her; a son wanting to set the record straight on his own family history; to a birthfather who never even saw his daughter when she was born, but never forgot her - each story is personal and thought provoking.
