There are many factors involved in calculating the cost of an investigation. One of the most important factors is the amount of information you can provide regarding the subject of the investigation. As a general rule of thumb, the more information you provide, the less you will pay.
Another factor is whether a case will go to court or not. Generally, cases that
go to court need more evidence than those that do not. Some of these cases require several days of surveillance, through which our investigators will have to document a certain ‘pattern of behavior’ rather than an isolated event. This generally applies to child custody cases, child support cases, etc.
For cases that cover a specific event (e.g. you know that your spouse is meeting up with their lover on a certain date and time), we only charge a four hour retainer fee.
If the case happens to go longer than the four hours, than we will ask for your permission to continue. If you agree to that, than we will bill you hourly for the duration of the surveillance.
We offer discounted rates for extended surveillance cases, so please call us and ask us about our current specials. You can also find our rates under the ‘Fees’ tab on our homepage.
$99/hr. per investigator
We do NOT charge a mileage fee as long as the subject remains within a 30 mile radius of our office. If the subject leaves the 30 mile radius, we will contact you and if you agree to proceed with the investigation, the charge will be 0.45 cents per mile. We also do NOT charge for administrative fees.
All other verifiable expenses, such as tolls, lodging, and cover fees that are incurred during the investigation are payable by the client.
Surveillance reports will be provided at the rate of $75 per day of surveillance.
