We have a high success rate for locating an address for most subjects residing in the US. We do not have a flat fee for locating a subject as there are just to many variables. Most subjects have assets, family, employment, utility records, vehicles, etc. that assist in locating someone while others may be hiding intentionally. We never know how difficult a locate will be until we try and we can not guarantee we will locate everyone. Most locates run $100 to $200 although some can be as low as $35 and as much as $350.
Sometimes we will also find a phone number. Other times we will have to search for a phone number if one is requested. We have phone searches available, see our Information Retrieval page on our website for more info on phone searches.
Getting started: To get started make a retainer payment on our website. We do not have a set retainer amount. If you think your subject resides in Oregon and will not be difficult to locate, $100 to $200 should work to get started. If you think your subject may be difficult to locate or residing outside of Oregon you may want to send $200 to $300. Any funds not used will be refunded to you.
Just email all the known details of the subject(s) and we will get started. Please fill out this request form and send it over with your email. LOCATE REQUEST FORM.
Time Frames: Most routine locate searches take 1 to 3 weeks. This allows time to begin with basic searches and work our way up as needed to keep costs down. Time is also often needed in order to confirm the address information we have identified. We ask that you please do not call or email and ask for a status on a routine locate request. Either we are still working on locating a subject or we have finished and turned over the results to you. In order to keep costs down, we can not take the time to go over each locate investigation as it transpires or provide partial reports or updates on every case or we would never get the work done. We need to focus our time on your requests and will keep trying until we find your subject or until we have exhausted all efforts.
Rush Time Frames: We understand some clients will have a dead line/statute and may need us to rush a locate investigation. We can do that, but understand we may not have time to confirm the address information found. A rush fee will apply based on the scope of the job.
Permissible Purpose to Receive Requested Info: If you have permissible purpose* to obtain the information then it will be provided to you most likely in one of two methods, either by Process Serving the subject found or providing the information to your attorney.
If you do not have permissible purpose and you would just like to locate some one such as an old friend or relative, we can still help you. However, after we cannot provide you directly with the address found. We can forward a letter from you to them with your contact info or make contact on your behalf providing the subject with your contact information and leaving it up to the subject to contact you. This is our way of protecting the subjects from misguided individuals.
*Permissible Purpose is defined in Section 604 of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). [15 U.S.C. s 1681b]
