Man this guy cleared all doubts I had on regards of my ex fiancé when he helped me find out she was having an affair with a coworker a year into the proposal. He brought more than enough evidence to the table which allows me to say hands down this guy knows what he’s doing & truly knows meaning on what it takes to be a private investigator. Mr Mark you said to me you’ll find the answers to all my questions when I hired you & let me tell you, you sure are a man of your word!

Iuliana was invested in helping me resolve the issue with which I was faced. She was incredibly thorough in her investigation. She took her time and cared about the work she produced. When we sat down to discuss the matter, Iuliana was present, she didn't rush the conversation. She was responsive to my inquiries and provided her professional opinion regarding what information was or wasn't needed to accomplish the task at hand. If you're looking for a dedicated, competent and practical investigator, I would recommend her enthusiastically.

I was a bit nervous to hire a Private Investigator, not knowing what to expect but meeting with Mr. Campbell settled my nerves completely. I discussed my concerns and revealed why I needed his services. Mr Campbell was professional and patient and I quickly realized I was in safe hands. My case was resolved promptly and effectively. I have nothing but positive reviews to give this company and will be using and recommending CIG, LLC for all future cases.

Absolutely the best! Sincerely interested in my problem and did all that the law allowed, but was unable to obtain the information I desired because of strict privacy law. Mr. Kelly charged me nothing for his efforts, something remarkable these days. He said he did nothing for me, therefore no charge. Commendable! Thank you Mark. Should I ever again need an investigator, you are on the top of my list.

My ex-spouse was slacking off on making child support payments for our 7 year old child, and said that he was disabled and therefore not able to work. After doing some research I came across Darrin's agency and found out of his many years of experience in the private investigation industry. He's appeared on the NY Times, which further establishes his credibility. After a thorough consultation, I hired Darrin to conduct a child custody investigation on my ex. During the 3 days of surveillance, Darrin's team of expert agents were able to uncover my ex at the gym, jogging outdoors, even working! A thorough report was given to me, along with supporting evidence such as still shots. I was able to take this to family court and have child support payments enforced. Thanks Darrin for the great job!

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.
