Private Investigator Basics: Background Investigations

Private investigators perform background investigations to verify a person's professional and personal history. A proper background investigation involves conducting interviews and searching for documents that will give you a greater understanding of the person you are looking into.

Can't I just pay for an online background check?

There are automated background checks available on the Internet, but the information is often incomplete or inaccurate, and each record, whether found through the Internet or another source, needs to be verified for validity. A qualified private investigator can provide detailed and accurate information about a person and ensure that the information is accurate.

There is no standard or routine background check. The investigation should be tailored to your areas of concern, reasons for finding out more, and your overall needs.

Whether you're hiring a new employee, looking for a nanny or babysitter, or are considering a prospective business partner, it's a good idea to get a better understanding of who and what you will be involved with. In some situations, not knowing someone's history can have legal, financial, and personal consequences.

A comprehensive background investigation report by an experienced, professional investigator can mean the difference between financial ruin or success. At Brian Blackwell Investigations, we can assist with substantiating facts before you assume legal responsibility and avoid unpleasant surprises.

Our thorough, confidential background investigations consider personal history, criminal and civil cases, professional licensing and history, employment, financial status and assets, associations, social media and online presence, business interests, and political contributions in our investigation.
