Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is the cost of a private investigator near me?

A. Wanting to know the cost for a private investigator near you is a common question and a valid one, as they do vary widely. It all depends on what you require the investigator to do and how many investigators are needed for your case, to bring it to a successful conclusion. Local private detectives can cost anything from $40-$150 an hour, per agent; some charge cheaper fees and some are more expensive. You will want to find an affordable private investigator closest to you, one that fits your budget but won't compromise your case using short-cuts. Don't go looking for cheap private investigators in your area, as that can have disastrous consequences and cost you more in the long run. We cover private investigator prices, costs and fees more deeply here if you want to know more.

Q. Should I use a local private investigator's services rather than an outside company?

A. Most private investigators and detectives provide similar investigative services as each other, so it is not necessary to use the services of an agency outside your area, unless you live in a remote location with no companies nearby. But, it is usually best to find a local company closest to you, in your home town, or city. The reason for this, is that a nearby private investigation company will more than likely know the surrounding area better than an outside firm and can potentially provide a better efficient service. So, you may now be wondering, what private investigator services near me are there? Well, some of the local PI services you can expect range from infidelity investigations (such as cheating spouse surveillance), child custody investigations, cyber, financial and background checks. We go over what local investigation services you can expect more deeply here.

Q. Should I use a local private investigator near me for a cheating spouse?

A. Unfortunately cheating and infidelity in relationships and marriages does happen. If you suspect your partner is cheating but can't get the proof you need, then yes, you should use a private investigator near you for a cheating spouse. A local private investigation firm can put your partner under close surveillance, watching their every move in the neighborhood. The benefit of hiring infidelity investigators near you is that they usually know the local vicinity, the nearby hotels, the bars and clubs where a cheating couple may hang out. So, using a nearby detective agency in your home town or city can help you get your evidence of cheating. We go over in detail about using nearby private investigators for cheating spouses here.

Q. Where can I find the best private investigator near me?

A. Searching for "best private investigator near me" or "best private detective near me" on the internet isn't going to do you much good. "Best" is a subjective term, meaning what is best for one person might not be the best for another. How we decide on what a good product or service is, is whether or not it meets or exceeds our expectations. This is similar to hiring a private investigator. If your local PI provides you with information you wanted that has a positive outcome then that detective (in your eyes) would be considered the best. If the same detective provided you with information that had a negative outcome (not the result you wanted or expected) then that investigator could be considered not very good. Here's the deal. Private investigators find information, that's all. What that information is and how it influences your case does not reflect on the ability, credibility, or usefulness of the investigator you used. We recommend reading this article to help you find the best company for your needs. It covers what you need to know and how to find the best local private investigator in your area.

Q. I want to hire a private investigator near me. What do I do now?

A. If you have already decided to hire a private detective and want to know what to do next, we can give you some sound advice and direction. Your next step is to start looking for a local private investigation company or nearby detective agency where you live, in your home town or city. But how and what do you look for? Here's where to start. We often get asked a lot of questions about the hiring of investigators, which prompted us to create a number of detailed guides covering topics we most frequently get asked about. These in-depth articles can give you useful information on the whole hiring process as well as confidence when looking for a private detective in your area.
