Before we start to answer that question, we just want to let everyone know that we have hit another “blog milestone.” This is our 40th blog. We are very proud of this accomplishment. Believe us, it is not easy to come up with new topics to write about every two weeks, but we have gained a loyal following that seems to enjoy the topics that we delve into, and for that we say “thank you!”
Now back to the matter at hand. One of the most common questions that we get when someone calls, texts, emails or chats is “What is the cost of a Private Investigation into, for example, locating a person or in a cheating spouse situation. The answer to this is that it is different for every case. Generally speaking, surveillance is $100 per hour (as of the writing of this blog). Typically about sixteen hours is needed and it is broken up into smaller periods of time. We would set up a free consultation to learn what is happening and then recommend an action plan going forward. The reasons for surveillance vary. It could be a cheating surveillance in Bayside Hills or an injury surveillance in East Glastonbury. Perhaps it could be a custody surveillance in Glastonbury Center or maybe a child support surveillance in Bay Terrace. All surveillances come under the $100 per hour umbrella.
Another major service that people call about are person locates (otherwise known as “missing person” cases). Generally speaking, these run about $400 to $600, but it could be priced on an hourly basis of $100 per hour with a cap for really difficult cases. The cost overall of these cases really depends upon the information you bring to us and how old the information is. We would be interested in information such as full name, date of birth, old address or social security number. This information also needs to be as recent as possible in order to be considered a “flat rate” case. A search with information from three years ago is much different than from 30 years ago, especially for female subjects as their names can change.
The reasons for this type of search vary. It could be a landlord looking for a tenant that skipped out on their rent in their Bayside Gables apartment. It could be a search to serve court papers to someone in South Glastonbury. It could be that someone is trying to find a lost love or a buddy from high school that they lost touch with from years ago. Every case is different, and you would need to call us for your free consultation to find out which price would apply based upon your situation.
These are just two of the many services we provide. Each service is unique in that it may require various actions in certain situations, and be simpler in others. The best way to know the cost of your case is a good old fashioned call. We can talk over the details and come up with a quote for you to consider. We are very good at what we do, and will be happy to share our knowledge and expertise with you when handling your case. We have handled thousands of cases over 30 years between two states, so we have the necessary tools to get the job done. We look forward to hearing from you when you are ready to start. The consultation is free so give us a call. The only thing you have to lose is the opportunity to get your answers if you don’t.
