7 Questions About Hiring a Private Detective

Hiring a private investigator is a decision that deserves careful consideration. You may not be sure if hiring a detective is the best move for your situation, and you may be concerned about how much the services will cost, whether the investigator can help and how you will react to the information found.

Here are seven of the most common questions we hear from new clients who are interested in hiring a investigator. We're hoping they can help you, too!

1. What do private investigators do?

Investigators generally perform real-time observation or online research. They can help with collecting evidence such as photos, exchanges between individuals or records.

2. What types of cases are detectives most experienced in?

The most common cases that PIs work on include infidelity, divorce, child custody, background checks, online dating, fraud investigations, surveillance, extensive research and finding a missing person.

3. How long does each case take?

Each investigation is unique, so it can vary greatly in how long a case takes to solve. On average, however, research takes 2-10 hours and surveillance takes 4-20 or more.

4. Is the information collected done in a legal manner?

Yes. All State Investigation's private detectives operate within legal means. This is important for their own liability, and also it ensures that you can use the evidence in court.

5. Will the person I'm investigating know about it?

No. No one but you and the investigator you hire will be aware of the arrangement. Our services are always 100% confidential, and our investigators have extensive experience that allows them to work discreetly.

6. WHY SHOULD I HIRE A DETECTIVE WHEN MY FRIEND HAS OFFERED TO SPY?

Private investigators obtain evidence legally, so you can use the information in court. They have experience in the field, so they know what types of exchanges to pick up on that other people wouldn't notice. PIs also have access to databases that aren't offered to the general public.

Above all else, you don't want to put a friend or yourself in the middle of danger. A PI allows you to get the information you need quickly and accurately.

7. How much does a private investigator cost?

Fees vary widely based on the services you need. For instance, digital research costs less than surveillance work. Some services are a flat fee (i.e., background check) while others are charged per hour. For a better understanding of fees, call All State Investigation. It costs nothing to get some friendly advice.
