Most consultations with a private investigator are about finding out what your options are. Those options can help with making a more informed decision on how to take the next step. We know you have concerns about letting someone else in on your situation. So when you contact a private investigator for the first time, whether over the phone or in person, there should be no obligation to commit and the initial consultation should be free. The fee for services should clearly be explained, and the investigator may ask you some of the questions below:
- Why is the investigation needed?
- Who are we investigating?
- What are you looking to gain?
- What type of evidence do you need?
- How strong are your intuitions?
Yes. All information given to a private investigator by a client, as well as information obtained by the private investigator on the client’s behalf, remains confidential, and passes only between the investigator and client. The only exception to this rule is if there are illegal activities being witnessed, or if the investigator has reason to believe that someone involved in the investigation (either the client, or the person being investigated) is a danger to themselves or to others.
