A person of interest (POI) hides for a reason; they may have a strong desire to remain hidden. Yet, the main purpose of a skip tracing case is to locate the individual in question. After doing so, if necessary and appropriate, we can contact him or her on your behalf. We can also provide you with the information you need to contact him or her yourself, assuming you have a legally permissible reason to locate/contact them. Depending on the specifics of the assignment, the following are some of the types of information that can be provided:


  • Phone number
  • Current address
  • Date of birth
  • Social security number
  • Driver’s license number

A skip trace investigator is a specialized type of private investigator with expertise in locating people who are missing or difficult to locate. These are often individuals who have disappeared or relocated to avoid unpaid debts, crimes committed, or other reasons. Skip tracers use a variety of techniques, including searching public and private records, conducting interviews with people who know the individual of interest, and using databases and software.

Without accurate contact information, it is difficult to track down a POI. There is a process involved with locating an individual. First, skip tracing companies examine public sources of information. Common examples of public information sources may include:


  • Property tax records
  • Arrest records
  • Marriage licenses
  • Businesses licenses
  • Social media


Next, skip tracers may turn to specialized databases. These databases contain private information. Social security numbers and employment records are common examples of private information. Only licensed and approved investigators can access many types of private information.

Our private investigators have access to numerous private online databases. We can also work with collection agencies, corporations, and other individuals when necessary. With over three decades of experience, we use our wide range of resources effectively and efficiently.

Skip tracers use a strategic set of tools and processes to locate people of interest, including reviewing surveillance records, conducting interviews with people close to the subject, and using specialized skip tracing software and databases to pull information. Skip tracers may also use social media platforms to find information about the individual’s location.

According to the US Census Bureau, the average person moves 11.7 times in their lifetime. While the reasons may vary, some individuals relocate to avoid social and financial responsibilities. The use of skip tracing services can help pinpoint these individuals by searching public records, verifying data, scouring databases, researching social media networks, and investigating people who know the person of interest.

The cost of skip tracing services depends on several variables, such as the scope of the investigation, the depth of service, and the experience of the skip tracing company. For an initial discovery, a professional skip tracer will often charge a flat fee between $275 and $500 to conduct a search, however, there are limitations to what these foundational skip tracing services provide.

More advanced skip tracing services are typically billed hourly, ranging anywhere between $95/hr and $200/hr. This caliber of service is often utilized for difficult-to-locate individuals.
