Most of us can’t imagine a scenario in which we’d need to hire a PI, however, there are situations that call for the professional services only an experienced private investigator can provide, whether we like it or not.
You may suspect your spouse, girlfriend or boyfriend of cheating on you and would prefer to deal with the truth, no matter how hard, than to live with what suspicion can do to you.
Or, you may be planning to invest in a company but need to know more than what’s presented to you on paper by the company.
Perhaps you’re struggling with employee theft and need to get the quality of proof required to take legal steps to put an end to it.
Divorce cases that involve custody battles and custody arrangements also often call for the services of a private investigator, in order to ensure that the best interests of the children are maintained.
Whatever the reason for hiring a private investigator, you’d probably want an answer to the question; how much does a PI cost per hour? The answer isn’t quite that clear-cut or easy, since every investigation is different, even if it’s the same type of case and, every budget is different.
Because of the individual demands of every case, you need to find a trusted, registered PI who will be open and aboveboard with you about private investigator rates.
Any PI who dodges your questions regarding how much he charges per hour, or whether he can charge a flat rate for your case, isn’t worth your time.
