Private Investigator Cost

Taking the mystery away from the cost of investigation!

For most of our clients, often it is their first time contacting us for help, so we understand that most people have no idea as to what an investigation might cost. There really is no set fee for each of our services as everyone’s requirements generally differ and are customised to suit their objective and budget.

An investigation can range anywhere from $250 to $100,000 and will mostly be dependant on how long the investigation will take. We have outlined below the approximate costs and starting costs for some of our services, so that you are somewhat aware of these before contacting us for a free consultation and a more accurate quote.  Spouse Spy are not the cheapest investigation company and we are not the most expensive either. Do not choose an investigation company based on cost alone. Generally the ones advertising that they are the cheapest do so for a reason. They often do not have the resources or the skills to handle your case competently. Make your decision based on your consultation with the investigator from that company, and then consider the costs. We understand that running an investigation is not in everyones budget, but what we do guarantee is that you will be accurately consulted and quoted prior to commencing any work. There are no surprises!

Thanks guys, you have helped me get the evidence I needed to move on with my life after my wife continually denied cheating on me.
