Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Does a PI need to be licensed?
A. Yes. According to Michigan State law, a person or firm doing investigations must be licensed and bonded.

Q. When I hire SIG, is it confidential? If so, how do I know?
A. SIG's services are 100% confidential. We are required by law to keep material confidential. Our contract also contains a confidentially clause.

Q. Can SIG tap a phone? Even if I own it?
A. No. It is against Federal Law to tap any phone without a warrant.

Q. Are results guaranteed?
A. Results can never be "guaranteed." We do guarantee to obtain the correct information for you while keeping your overhead in check. You have our Signature on it!

Q. Which steps do I need to take to start using SIG?
A. After a free 15 minute consultation, we will send you a Confidential Investigative Service Contract or a Background Check Contract. After completing the contract, return it with the agreed retainer and we will schedule your case. Pending the case load, you may have your case started in as little as 48 hours (check for earlier availability). We do not accept cases via email. SIG requires either a face-to-face meeting at our office or undisclosed location or telephone conversation.

Q. How long does it take to get results from a Background Check?
A. As little as 4 hours. Pending which Background Check you chose and SIG's case load, sometimes up to 48-72 hours. Most are completed within 24 hours.

Q. What do I do after the investigation?
A. SIG will assist you with any questions. If you are unsure of your next step, there are several knowledgeable attorneys who can assist you with legal advice and representation. If your attorney has any questions regarding your case, you can give them written permission to discuss it with our investigators.
