Method of Payment
As a convenience to our clients, we accept many forms of payment. We know that what is convenient or preferred differs by the client, so we accept the following methods in an effort to meet your needs.
- Online credit card payment via Paypal (client shall pay additional fees)
- Personal or business check ($25 fee for insufficient funds)
- Money Order
* Please do not submit funds in any form until we have accepted your case.
* *Please note that using the "Donation" buttons below allows us to avoid pre-set pricing on multiple buttons, meaning our clients are able to enter the amount of their payment specifically. The use of the word Donate here does not indicate that funds transferred meet the IRS definition of a donation.
Due to the expense of the services we provide, we do require individuals and first-time business clients to provide a retainer equal to the amount of the estimate prior to conducting any service. Your invoice will be itemized as services are provided. Upon completion of services, any portion of the retainer that is unallocated will be refunded to you or you may choose to apply the balance to future investigations. If you have authorized additional services above your retainer, either verbally or in writing, additional services will not exceed the amount authorized and you will receive an itemized invoice showing the balance due.
