I can't even begin to express how happy my husband and I are that we found Paul. We had previously met with two other private investigators that weren't reliable whatsoever. Our calls weren't being returned. We never knew what was going on and we felt that we were being taken advantage of and left in the wind. I had contacted Paul and the day of he had met with us. He was very down to earth and was very understanding of our needs.. The following day we had met with his son Dan who was great as well! Our case is finisning up now and I feel like a weight has been lifted off of our chests! Thank you SO much Paul and Dan. I would highly recommend you guys.

I would highly recommend SJF for investigative work. In my case I needed to find answers to reach some kind of closure. Steve understood what I was dealing with and he used his skills and good judgment. He definitely understands and respects the legal and moral side of things. His personal followup is perhaps what was most helpful and supportive to me.

About

We're a team of committed individuals in search of the truth about the paranormal. Our investigations utilize scientific method to assist us in proving or disproving paranormal activity claims. Scientific method would include a myriad of technologically-based equipment that is always changing and evolving. One definition of scientific method is as follows: * Generally involving the observation of the phenomena * The principles and empirical processes of demonstration and discovery considered necessary for or characteristic of scientific investigation * The formulation of a hypothesis concerning the phenomena * Experimentation to show the falseness or truth of the hypothesis * A conclusion that validates or modifies the hypothesis We believe that this is the right way to investigate. We don't depend on feelings or psychic means in the hope of gathering evidence. Rather, we prefer to utilize electronic equipment. We think this will be an excellent way to get irrefutable evidence, confirming the existence of all things paranormal. This equipment will also help us find logical mundane reasons for what may be distinguished as paranormal. In fact, we prefer to first find a possible logical reason for an issue. Then, after all we can think of has been ruled out, we look into the possible paranormal reason. Our mission at NightFall Paranormal is to learn about the paranormal and to better equip ourselves to help those who are in need around us, with regard to searching knowledge of the paranormal. There are many people who misunderstand the meaning of paranormal. It's also our aim to clarify misconceptions and misunderstandings about the paranormal to those who wish to learn. During an investigation, we act personable and professional. Your confidence in us is significant to every one of us. Your privacy and confidentially is our focus. We'll never disclose anything that you don't want to reveal! It is our desire that by approaching the paranormal through technical means, it will better assist you to understand, as well as better cope with, your surrounding. The best way we can achieve this with you is to share with you our experience. There is never a charge for our services, no matter how far away.

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.
