Working with Kevin Perez has been nothing short of amazing! from the moment I spoke with him, his words put me at ease. He helped me locate the address to where my Daughter and her Mother were currently living so I could further pursue my visitation/custody case. I think Kevin Perez is excellent at his job because before I reached out to him I checked with other Private Investigators who said they were unable to help or just didn't return my call. I am more than pleased with the work that Kevin Perez has done, and will immediately refer anyone who needs help that may require his service. THANK YOU!

M. Rockford / MSA Drilling, I hired Homeland Protection Service for seven days to watch my production factory during renovations. Homeland did a fabulous job maintaining access controls of our delivery trucks, construction crews, vendors and employees and overall kept my facility secure. I noticed their staff paid attention, had initiative, offered some great ideas, looked sharp and were always available when I needed them. We received what we paid for and then some and I will absolutely use their services again at my other locations. Great job Homeland and thanks again!

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.
