Local West Virginia Private Investigator

Private Investigators in West Virginia are required to be licensed in order to conduct Private Investigation services. If your investigation requires the case to move out of state, the private investigator must still abide by any out of state licensing requirements.

West Virginia Private Investigator

A private investigator in West Virginia must apply to the West Virginia Secretary of State and pass licensing requirements, including a thorough background check.
