WHAT WE DO ---Nationwide
BIOLOGICAL PARENT RESEARCH
Let me help find your biological family -- whether you are adopted or are looking for a child you placed for adoption.  NOT ADOPTED, BUT UNSURE OF PARENTAGE?  DNA TESTING WORKS FOR THAT, TOO.
EMPLOYMENT OR TENANT SCREENING
PLACE OF EMPLOYMENT
Let me run the background check on your new tenant and job applicants.  I
manually check public court records, including bankruptcy, federal and state criminal, federal and state civil, judgments, liens, sex offender registry, etc.  This is not a quickly obtained database report.  I diligently look at all available records to gather information on the subject.  Personal or phone interviews of past employers, landlords, and personal references are also available.  We understand that every situation is different, so tell us what you want!

Applicants must sign an authorization pursuant to the FCRA.
Have a judgment you need to collect? 
Delinquent child support? 
I have many years of experience in locating place of employment for garnishments or child support payments.   High success rate!

Unfortunately, I have learned from past experience that payment must be made on all cases before work can commence.  Payment is due at the time the contract for services is signed.  Any expenses advanced by Tracers Investigation Agency must be paid before investigation results are released to clients.

Attorneys and other agencies that will require frequent services should deposit a retainer.  Detailed invoicing will be provided for charges made against the retainer. 

I accept cash, checks, cashier's checks, money orders, Paypal, and all major credit cards.

PAYMENTS

ADOPTION RESEARCH

The following prices are estimates.  Each case and situation is different.  Final price will be determined during Phase I phone call. 
​​

UNITED STATES ADOPTIONS ONLY



PHASE 1: 

​FREE 30 MINUTE INITIAL PHONE CONSULT
(Note:  Not all cases will be accepted)




PHASE 2:  

$350.00 + expenses*

Generally, this is a good estimate of the cost for Phase 2, allowing for 7 to 10 hours of my time.  After speaking to you about your particular case, I will give you a firm price.  Before I can start working on your case, you will need to answer some questions and provide me with copies  of all records and information that is in your possession relating to the adoption so that I don't waste precious time researching things you already know.  

You will receive a written report of findings in Phase 2, along with relevant documents acquired. (See Home page for description of research phases.)  If you prefer, we can skip Phase 2 and go directy to DNA testing.





PHASE 3:   (Optional)


 $500.00 + expenses*

Cost of DNA test ($69 - $125)**
(payable in advance of services)

​​
Testing is done by ANCESTRY.COM  

**Exact kit price depends on ANCESTRY'S going rate at the time.  Do not order a kit from Ancestry.    ​I will provide you with a test kit at my cost and make myself temporary administrator.

Advance payment is required in order to commence the DNA portion of my research. The fee of $500.00 will cover 10-15 hours of my time and should be sufficient to analyze the results and make initial contacts with family members.  

You will be provided with a written report of my findings, including copies of relevant documents obtained, such as obituaries, photos, census records, licenses, certificates, court documents, recordings (if any), worksheets, etc.  I expect to provide you with specific information about your first and/or second generation of family.  I do not build a complete family tree or do extensive genealogy research.  

While conclusive biological family results cannot be guaranteed in Phase 2 and Phase 3, I do guarantee that every effort will be made on your behalf to the best of my ability. 



   No refunds will be made once work in Phase 2 or 
Phase 3 commences.




      PHASE 4:  [Optional]


At this time we discuss the status of the DNA analysis, and you decide whether you want to pursue the search any further, at an additional cost.

                    EXPENSES:​​

*   Expenses include, but are not limited to:

The cost of a DNA kit from Ancestry, plus tax and shipping.

Mileage, where necessary.

Costs required for official copies from 3rd parties birth/death certificates, etc.)

Photocopies of records obtained, including census records, photographs, licenses, certificates, worksheets, court documents, obituaries, and audio recordings (if any).

Certain database fees (such as acquiring court records in states that charge for searches).  Occasionally, other database fees may be billed to you, but I try to notify you in advance for approval.
