To obtain a Tennessee background check, we need to download the application from here : http://www.tbi.state.tn.us/background_checks/backgrd_checks.shtml
This is the form: http://www.tbi.state.tn.us/background_checks/TORIS-master-memo.pdf
We need to write on it that it needs to be notarized.
We can go to the TBI and get it done in person while we wait:

Then we can take it downtown to the Secretary of State to get it apostilled.
