Private Investigations and Personal Security/hi


what info from most important to least imp, - is it necessary to get  to be able to track someone down who either A)is not hiding but just ignoring you, and /or  b) does not wish to be found?

are a nmae and ssn sufficent to find someone in either category?

so, u have the opportunity to collect and gather data while the part is willing to divulge it, but need to know what to ask for.

in the future however, u r concerned he or she might change her mind and  become recalcitrant and go underground
so, when you contract or amke an y deal with  such a person u wanna know what info and or PHTOCOPIES  u should collect?/

and are photo copies  better than plain data? do they add anything or make future skip tracing easier?

Nama and social security number are usually sufficient to locate someone. If the person you are looking to locate "changes their mind and become recalcitrant" you don't have the right to pursue them, unless you are a bill collector. To do so may constitute talking.

I can answer almost any question with regards to the individual state laws concerning private investigators; best practices and procedures used in private investigations;how to determine if the agency or investigator you are contemplating using is sufficiently qualified to do the work and if an investigation was conducted in accordance with the standards of practice and care used in the professional investigative industry. I can also direct you with regards to doing your own research in certain situations, such as finding someone who owes you money. I can steer you through the database "minefield" with regards to which databases contain useful information and which don't. I can also advise regarding the kind of information that you can legally obtain and what's not legal.
