If you've made the decision to hire a private investigator to help with your case, the next step is to choose a person for the job. It's important to realize that not all PIs are the same. Let's take a look at the top questions you should ask a private detective before hiring them. The individual you select can make or break your case!
Private investigators who are licensed have passed a state certification exam and meet other strict requirements. They must also attend various training workshops and seminars to keep their license current. Generally speaking, a license indicates that a higher quality of standards is met.
Experience is everything when it comes to detective work. A seasoned PI will know what to look for beyond the obvious, such as the type of body language a person might have when walking out of their office. All State Investigations has a database of experienced PIs, as our company has been in business since 1951, giving us over 60 years of field experience.
Private detectives can assist with all types of cases, so it's important to choose someone who is comfortable with your particular circumstances. For instance, if you're trying to get a good divorce settlement, a PI with matrimonial case experience is ideal. This is one field where specializations are important.
Each state is unique and has a different set of laws. State laws are very important when it comes to investigative work. Not only does the manner in which the evidence is collected make a difference but it can also help your case. Make sure the PI understands these laws.
Once the PI completes their work, inquire about what types of documents you will receive. At All State Investigation, we give each client a complete set of reports, videos and photos that were gathered during the investigative work. We are also happy to produce a second set free of charge for an attorney.
