How to hire a Private Investigator

Thinking of hiring a PI? Before you make the decision to engage a Private Investigator, it is a good idea to think about your budget first. Knowing what you are prepared to invest in obtaining the information you want can help a PI advise you and formulate an investigation plan that meets your budget. It may be that what you’re trying to achieve is unrealistic on your current budget, or perhaps you’ll be pleasantly surprised! Either way, a good PI will be able to offer advice about ways to achieve results within your price range. PI’s charge anywhere between $80 – $120 per hour in Australia. Some have set fees for certain tasks such as process serving. Most charge for expenses in addition to their hourly rate as well as mileage charges when they have to travel significant distances by car. Nearly all Investigative Services practitioners charge either a retainer of approximately four hours or the full fee upfront. Before you hire an Investigator, spend some time placing a dollar value on the information you seek.
