How it Works

For metamaps with court record lookups, the lookup is available only if a user has been verified by all other merits in the metamap and has provided enough information to initiate a lookup.

If the user has been verified for all other merits and we have obtained enough information, the court record lookup will execute automatically.

📘

Manually initiate a court record lookup

If a user has failed a check, been rejected, or requires review, the court record lookup will not be available unless you have manually changed their status to "verified."

After you have manually verified a user's status, you can initiate a court record lookup.

Step 2: Integrate

There are 3 ways you can use MetaMap's Court Records:

  2. MetaMap Button — Integrate our MetaMap Button SDK into your application to use our prebuilt UX
  3. API — Integrate our API into your application and build your own UX

Integrate our MetaMap Button via SDK

Use our SDK integration if you want to use Metamap's verification tools but design your own experience for your users.

To implement this:

  1. Setup the metamap for Court Records in the dashboard
  2. Install and implement an SDK framework
    ###Integrate via API
