Not sure if you should hire a private investigator (PI) for your situation? Here are some common reasons why people hire PIs:

  • To perform background checks
  • To conduct surveillance
  • To investigate and confirm infidelity 
  • To locate assets
  • To gather evidence for trials
  • And more

To find out if hiring a private investigator is the right route to take, contact a few local PIs. Ask them about the services they offer (and how much they charge).
