Delays may result in people becoming entrenched in their positions and gives more time for discussion to occur among the parties and potential witnesses to incidents. This is not to advocate being hasty in your decision to investigate but being expedient in moving the process forward is recommended.

Check with the licensing body in your jurisdiction to ensure the investigator is licensed and they are affiliated with an agency, which is also properly licensed. To locate the regulatory authority in your jurisdiction, try an Internet search using the terms “private investigator license” and the name of your province or state.Be wary of agencies that claim to do it all. Most agencies that put forward such claims are rarely good at everything, and typically expert at nothing.
