How to get started
Contact us and we will be glad to discuss your case needs, plan the way forward and provide a free estimate.
As an administrator or estate lawyer, you will be asked only to authorize a specific number of hours research or a budget figure. We do not ask for any financial retainer in advance.
If the search needs to continue after the first research session, you would be required to authorize additional research based on a specific number of hours. Our research blocks are typically 16-24 hours in duration, but can be any agreed number of hours.
What to expect
We will produce a full summarised report of the search showing family relationships, and a complete list of sources examined. The latter is particularly helpful in proving to a court that due diligence was undertaken.
We typically complete research blocks within 8-12 weeks. We can expedite research, if requested. Please contact us for more information or to get a search under way today.
