Questions To Ask A Private Investigator.
You’ve made the decision that you’d like to hire a private investigator. You do what most people do, go online and search. You now have a list of 10 private investigation firms, but, how do you choose? After going on a few websites you see they all offer similar services. Now what? You can’t afford to waste money, time or confidentiality. With a few basic questions, you can start to narrow down the search.
Here are some of the top questions to ask a private investigator before hiring them:
- Are you licensed? There are only a handful of states that do not require a license. Stay away from any unlicensed investigators, no matter how enticing their deals are.
- What type of training and background do you have? Holding a license does not mean they have extensive training or experience, in all types of cases.
- What hours do you work? Are you available 24/7? Be sure the investigators are able to conduct investigations at all hours and days.
- Will my case be confidential? You want to have an investigator who understands the importance of confidentiality. Confidentiality can be a matter of physical safety.
- Can the investigator work with my lawyer? The investigator should be able to provide detailed reports and be able to testify in court.
- Will you provide a detailed report? You should receive a final detailed report regarding your investigation. This can include any work done, people interviewed, photographic evidence (if necessary). If you have specific report requests or certain types of documentation, be sure the investigator can comply.
- Can you guarantee the result I want? Unfortunately, a private investigator cannot guarantee a specific result. If a private investigator claims they can guarantee your spouse is cheating/not cheating or anything like that – find someone else to handle your case. A private investigator should guarantee a thorough investigation and detailed reports.
