I had a problem similar, 'I' was even in jail for my first interview, find out who the background check is run through and contact them, you'll have to jump through a few hoops (I faxed copies of my drivers license and other identifying documents) but you should be able to clear it up rather less expensive than with a lawyer.

Having same problem why won't the company just check by social security numbers. Name and birth-date  are sometimes the same in our case it is but ID.

And social don't match yet when applying companies just don't want to bother you have to make a dispute to who ever is running your background check but their's a ton of background comp. Why do we have to do their job they are the ones getting paid and mean while in this crisis without a job because they don't do their job?

Why not try asking the people, where you got the background check what they suggest. You may need a lawyer to access records and you may not.

You may be able to secure a statement from someone involved who is in a position of Authority to render such a statement. That will begin the process of proving that you are not the person of bad repute and that this has been a huge mistake.

There are some companies that deal with identity theft like life-lock, maybe your husband is a victim of that.

Try calling up an identity theft company and seeing what they think, a lot of those people will offer a little bit of help for free and perhaps getting some identity theft insurance would be good since they'll help out in situations like this.

I thought Lifelock just did things with credit, not criminal type matters. It's very distressing

Hmm... I thought ID theft included criminal matters... I'm going to call my uncle up and see what he did back when he got arrested for a DUI that he didn't even commit. I'll let ya know what I find out for the situation.

Well actually you got me thinking about it and I called Lifelock and the person in customer service says that they will hire lawyers and do whatever it takes to the boundary of $1,000,000 to restore your name in a case that something like that happens. So.. apparently it isn't only financial endeavors they help people deal with, it is just ID theft in general. I dunno if they will help you with your current situation, you will probably need to contact a lawyer about this, but at least you can have some insurance for the future.
