ADA Bureau of Investigations offers professional investigation services to all counties of Vermont, New
Hampshire, and Northern South Carolina. We employ certified licensed professional investigators.
Q: How do I contact an investigator?
A: Call us toll free at 1-888-603-6363 or email us firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: Do I need to give my name?
A: No, not initially. We can simply discuss your case and answer any of your questions before you retain us.
Once we become more involved and you do retain us, then yes, we will have to get all your information. Even
after you retain us, no one will know that you were in touch with us unless the case goes to court or you tell
them. All of our cases are 100% confidential.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: Its very difficult to say how much it will cost, due to the fact that we offer so many different services. Services
can range from under a hundred dollars to thousands of dollars, depending on the complexity and the length
of the case that you may have. When you call us, we can give you an estimate.
Q: What is the process after I decide to hire you to conduct an investigation?
A: Once you decide that you want to hire our agency, we will meet with you and have you sign our contract to
have the case get started. The contract is signed on any case that we take on and it protects our company
from theft of services and misuse of information obtained. Once the contract is signed and we have secured a
retainer, we will begin the investigation. During the case, we will give you periodic updates as deemed
necessary. When the case is finalized, you will receive all evidence, a professional DVD (if the case is for some
type of video surveillance) and a financial statement explaining where your money was used. Every case is
different, but this is the way it typically works.
Q: I think my husband/wife is cheating on me, what should I do?
A: The first thing you should do is click on the "Investigations" tab and read the "Top signs your loved one
is cheating." After reading this over, if any of the signs are applicable to your situation, call us. Unfortunately
if you feel deep down that your spouse is cheating, then he/she probably is. We will go over your concerns
and options and try our best to find an answer to your questions.
Q: Whats the guarantee that your going to get results after I hire you?
A: We have been in this business long enough to know that there are never any guarantees that we are going
to get full results. Your results are 100% effected by who we are watching or even the type of case we are
doing. For example; if we are hired to conduct surveillance on subject John Doe, and subject Doe never leaves
his residence while we are on surveillance, we cannot obtain any results. Another example; if we are hired to
locate subject Doe, sometimes people live "underground" and don't want to be found. It may take us days,
months, or even years to find subject doe.
Q: Do I need an attorney before I hire you?
A: Not always! Depending on the type of case. Many times its not necessary to hire an attorney prior to hiring
our agency. During our initial conversation we will discuss with you whether or not we will take your case
without you first hiring an attorney.
