If you hire us you will have peace of mind knowing all of our adoption specialists are also licensed investigators. As a licensed investigator, we have access to a wealth of information unavailable to the competition.

A: Once payment is received, it takes anywhere between a few days up to a few months to provide you with their contact information. The time it takes to locate them really depends on how much information you provide.
That’s what’s great about hiring us … we will offer the target of your investigation the opportunity to funnel info through us, such as medical/family history, therefore maintaining their own privacy and still allowing you to discover info about your bio family.

We recommend obtaining your non-ID before you begin your journey, however, in many cases, the adoptive parents are able to provide enough info to begin the search without it.
DNA is an excellent aid in your search. Finding “DNA cousins” can help us by providing a map to the correct line of biological relatives in your case. This is especially helpful with clients whose birth family has a very common last name.
Once your search is complete and we’ve found your birthparent(s), we will make that cold call for you to relieve you of the awkwardness. Our compassionate, sensitive adoption specialists (or investigators) have years of experience re-introducing adoptees and birthparents.
You will speak with an adoption investigator who will explain our process from start to finish. He or she will tell you what you can expect based on the information you provide.
A: No. We are a professional investigation service, licensed and regulated by the State of California. Therefore, we just don’t run a database search and turn incomplete information over to you. We confirm whether the person we find is actually the person you are looking for, then we provide you with accurate information.
