I was completely devastated because I knew that my ex-husband was abusing alcohol and drugs during times he had visitation with our daughter. When I went to court the judge didn’t do anything because it was my word against his. My attorney suggested that I hire a private investigator and provided me with your number. I researched your company and soon learned that you specialize in Child Custody Investigations. Within a few weeks you provided me with more evidence than I ever thought I would get. You even found things that I didn’t know he was doing. I took the evidence to my attorney and we went back to court. The judge ordered my ex-husband to undergo random testing and he had to prove that he was getting treatment for his addiction before he could continue seeing our daughter. The good news is that my-ex husband did get the help he needed and has been clean and sober for five months. I will always be grateful for the counsel you gave me on how to approach him to talk about his addiction and put him on the path to recovery. My daughter gets to see her father and I no longer worry that she is going to get hurt. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. I don’t even want to think what could have happened if I never hired you. Thank you so much.

I had CSA at a private event and couldn't have been happier. The officers were very nice and everyone at my party felt safe. They went above and beyond with their professionalism. I will definitely be hiring them for my next event.

We are a litigation law firm based out of San Francisco, CA. I hired Greg in the fall of 2014 to track down and serve three defendants in a multi-million dollar conversion and fraud case involving numerous auto dealerships and auto brokers throughout the United States. There were three defendants based out of Central Florida who were the sort of people that had expended a lot of effort "flying-under-the radar" , and all previous efforts to track them down and serve them had been costly, time consuming, and mostly unsuccessful. When I hired Greg for the case he quickly brought himself up to speed on the information we had on these people, and assisted me in determining what the best course of action would be to locate them. He was always responsive to calls and emails, did not hesitate to spend long hours on the job, and took the initiative to ascertain the whereabouts of all three defendants past the limited information I had given him. Greg was able to successfully serve these individuals with documents that were very important to our case. My firm will 10/10 use Greg and Agape Investigations again for any investigative work in Florida.

We used API for a child custody case in which our grandson's father was not paying child support, but we knew he was working as he has new cars, a boat, and nice house. Not only did we get a free background report but we got video proof that he was working as an unlicensed plumber. Not only does our daughter get monthly child support, but almost $100,000 in back child support thanks to API! Thanks Aaron Black, and to his team!

Alan did a great job for me during a difficult time. While I was not happy to see video of my husband with another woman, Alan walked me through the evidence gently and made sure I was ok through the whole process. I would highly recommend him to anyone trying to get information on their spouse.

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.
