I hired this company to help with a child custody case. Although I didn’t end up needing the material for court, as the defendants never appeared, I must say that from day one I knew I was in good hands and that I could trust and count on Detective Roger. I was updated about everything just as the detective learned the information. He was upfront about everything with me and saved me a lot of money. He never misled me on anything. There was a time during surveillance that it became apparent there was no reason to continue on. He could’ve easily stayed the amount of time I asked and charged me the money but he didn’t. He was upfront and honest. He told me his professional opinion and I’m glad I listened. He even went out one extra time for which he worked two extra hours that he never billed me for. This meant a lot to me as I am drowning in attorney fees from this custody trial. I felt he really cared about me and my case and wanted the best outcome. I’m ever so grateful to have stumbled upon this company on the Internet. I was previously let down by someone I had personally known. He is also a private detective and made big promises. However he was almost never available by phone, text, or email. He barely kept any contact and most importantly he did not go out the day I asked him to which threw everything off course completely. He only told me days later that he never went and this guy was planning to charge me at least double if not more than what I paid with Detective Roger. I wish I had hired him sooner. Had I done so I would’ve had a slam dunk case even if the defendants did show up. At the very least I would've had strong evidence for when I end up having to go back to court in the future, which I’m sure will be inevitable. So I just want to say a big thank you to Roger for all he’s done for me and my family. If I ever need any type of surveillance or other private detective work I know where to go and I know who to recommend!

I needed to investigate a private matter on a rush notice. I called New Jersey Investigation, on a Friday and by Monday morning I had all the information I needed including video and still photos and more.

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.
