Time, distance and the law put up the toughest barriers to any investigation. These are not insurmountable, but in some circumstances they will will require the experience, instincts and contact networks of the finest Los Angeles Private Investigator to overcome.

  • The passage of time is an obvious potential hindrance to an investigation. Looking to track down that high-school sweetheart 20 years later?

If she isn't the type for nostalgic reunions or Facebook catch-ups, reeling in all those lost years might not be as straightforward as you would hope.

It may require a national criminal background check in order to suss out there current or former whereabouts.
