I called from out of town to set an appointment for the service of papers. My call was answered immediately and followed up with a text giving me all the directions,and information for my request. I emailed the documents over with payment through PayPal (so easy!). Had I not put down the wrong address, the service would have been complete in less than 8 hours from our initial conversation! The next day, first thing in the morning I received a text that the service was complete and my documentation was emailed. So professional!!! I highly recommend Rivera & Associates Private Investigators!!!

Simply amazing ! This is pretty much my 5th hire of an investigator and no one was able to help for 2 years. John took over and simply took care of it. I still can't believe how he did what others weren't able to find. Not only did he help but he helped super fast. So thankful and will definitively recommend John to anyone! He is the best hands down and worth every penny. Not only is he professional but he is also compassionate and truly cares about his clients. I felt understood and even got advice from him he didn't even have to give me. I thank John from the bottom of my heart for helping out and would always use him again.

    I utilised the services of Krollpfeiffer & Co recently to assist me with a difficult spousal matter including personal harrasment and media defamation. They were able to resolve many of the issues within a matter of hours, and finalise my requests within days. You can't put a value on peace of mind and anxiety resolution, but they were able to work to a very reasonable budget, act promptly, and I'm extremely pleased with the result of their services.

    I am extremely pleased with the service I was provided and plan on referring her to everyone I know. She is also knowledgeable and walked me through her process. She was also able to complete my mailings and file my Notiice. (Add'l cost for mailings but so worth it) She made this process simple! I almost hired someone else and so happy I did not! It was a blessing in disguise! Thanks again,

    I had a need for a private investigator for a very complex matter involving several states and a foreign country. The first company I hired didn't do a good job at all. I then found Delphi Investigations in California. After a brief consultation I hired them feeling very comfortable with their abilities They handled the case in a very professional manner and the results were better than anticipated, especially the part involving the foreign country and Interpol. I highly recommend Delphi Investigations to anyone needing truly professional investigators. Courtnee F. Rex Seattle, WA

    I was involved in a hit and run accident where the other driver crashed into me and fled the scene. I only had liability insurance on my car at the time and I did not get a good look at the truck that hit me. I hired Grey & Associates to investigate the accident and help identify the other driver so I could take them to small claims court. Grey & Associates was able to locate video of the accident and help me locate the truck and the driver who hit me. Thanks to Grey & Associates I was able to file a case in small claims court and will hopefully get my car repaired soon.

    I have worked with Mr. Sanchez for many years. Mr. Sanchez is a skilled investigator and his vast experience will guarantee a quality work product. His experience will often reduce the hours needed to complete your case and reduce the end cost to the client. If your case involves the need for speaking Spanish, Mr. Sanchez is fluent in Spanish and you will save the cost of an interpreter. Mr. Sanchez is very trustworthy and you can be certain your case will remain confidential. Mr. Sanchez has my highest recommendation.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What does a private investigator do?

    First and foremost, good private investigators follow laws. Unlike on TV, they don’t break in windows or hack into hospital computer systems to get you intel. When you hire a private investigator, you’re hiring a professional to gather facts and find information for you. Although they can’t obtain certain information (such as health records), they do have access to information that most civilians do not. Often private investigators are hired to perform surveillance or background checks or investigate cases such as adultery, child custody, missing persons, hidden assets, or debugging, and theft or other crimes.

    Private investigators can be hired to interview people and provide that information to the client, perform photo or video surveillance, monitor activity at a location where you suspect criminal activities or questionable behavior, track a person’s movements, find missing people, do deep-dive background checks, and more. Private investigation can be helpful if you’re trying to get a court order but need evidence. Private investigators can also help find birth parents. Nationally, the average price range for private investigation is $70-$210 per hour.

    What does a private investigator cost?

    Private investigation isn’t just for blockbuster action movies. Hiring a private investigator can help in all kinds of situations ranging from finding a birth parent to improving personal security. Nationally, the average price range for private investigation is $70-$210, although pricing often hovers between $40 and $100 depending on the complexity of the services you need. Where you live in the country will affect your costs for private investigation; larger cities have higher business overhead and a higher cost of living, which in turn means higher service rates. The complexity of your case can also affect cost. A basic background check may have a flat rate, while hiring a private investigator to help with your child custody case may require more legwork and research, and therefore cost more. Some private investigators work on retainer. A retainer is essentially a nonrefundable deposit you pay to the professional — meaning you have retained their services — who then works against that amount. Here are some examples of average private investigation costs:

    • Hourly rate: $60-$70; costs can vary based on current fuel prices.
    • Flat rate: $100 for comprehensive background investigation services.
    • Retainer: $1,500 minimum retainer required by some pros before starting work.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
