----------------------

Are you accredited with the Better Business Bureau?
Yes, we are one of the few companies in our industry that could qualify to become accredited members of the Better Business Bureau in good standing. As a matter of fact, we have an A+ rating with them so you know you are working with a legitimate company. You can go to the BBB account to verify.


Why is the Better Business Bureau important to me?
Making sure the company you are about to work with are members of the Better Business Bureau in good standing is important because they have verified the company's website information, licensing, certifications, background, education, experience and equipment. Without this designation, you have no idea about who you are trusting your situation to and giving your money to. Anybody can make any claims on their website or when you speak with them. However, unless this information has been verified and approved by the BBB, you are taking unnecessary chances. Do yourself a favor and make sure whomever you decide to work with are accredited members of the BBB in good standing and DO NOT make your decision soley based on price, as examiners and their equipment, education, experience and methods are not all the same.


Where are your office locations?
Our network of examiners have offices nationwide in most metropolitan areas. Click here to find a location near you.


What if I can't get to one of the office locations?
No problem. In most cases, an examiner can come to your home or office, depending on your location and our schedule. In some areas, depending on the location and distance, there may be an additional fee to cover travel expenses and time.


How much do the lie detector tests cost?
Pricing for the polygraph lie detector test depends on the state in which the exam will be administered. Click here to get pricing for your location.


Are there any hidden costs or fees?
Absolutely not! The fees are all inclusive and even include a FREE confidential written report to show your accusers or to keep for your records.


Do you accept credit cards?
Yes. We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover or American Express in a safe, secure and private area.


Is it safe to pay for the service online?
Yes! 2Checkout is our credit card service provider and offer the highest security online. So, whether you want to use your Visa, Mastercard, Discover or American Express card or use your existing PayPal account, you can rest assured that your information will remain safe, secure and private.


Do you accept PayPal?
Yes. If you have an existing PayPal account, you're welcome to use it. However, you DO NOT have to have a PayPal account to process your Visa, Mastercard, Discover or American Express card. Either way, your information will remain safe, secure and private.


Do I have to have a PayPal account to use my credit card?
No. You DO NOT have to have a PayPal account to process your Visa, Mastercard, Discover or American Express card. Simply fill out the brief credit card payment form and your information will remain safe, secure and private.


Why do I have to pay anything up front?
Some folks are concerned about paying for a service up front and then not receiving that service. When you pay us for our services with your credit card, debit card or with your PayPal account, you have your complete consumer rights in tact. In other words, if we don't do what you paid us to do, you simply contact your credit card company or PayPal, tell them what happened and they will immediately return your money to you. Aside from having morals and ethics, what also prevents us from taking advantage of our clients is the many laws that prevent such activity. Also, we don't want to lose our license, lose our good reputation or incur any penalty fees from PayPal or the credit card companies. So, when you pay for your test with us, you're completely secured and safe from any wrong-doing.

The majority of examiners charge fees up front for a few reasons. First of all, it weeds out the non-serious people. Examiners have to calibrate their instrumentation, set up files, create the line of questioning, etc. All of these things take time. Imagine doing all of these things only to have the client cancel.

Secondly, it helps protect all parties involved. The client is guaranteed the service they paid for and the examiner is guaranteed that the client will take the exam, as agreed. Only serious clients will pay. Those that weren't sure or who never intended on taking test won't pay for the service, which saves us a great deal of time, money, effort and anxiety. We also have an A+ rating with the BBB, so you know you are in good hands.




What do I get for my money?
The examiner's service includes a pre-testing orientation interview phase where they explain how the process works, go over the do's and the don'ts of the test and answer your questions. Then, they go through the formal testing phase where they ask you a series of "yes" and "no" questions that are made up of relevant questions you provide to them and their our own control and irrelevant questions to help determine the examinee's baseline. The next step is to analyze the charts and complete the FREE confidential written report. Then, they will go over the test results with you and provide you a copy of the report. Most importantly, you will have the truth, which is priceless.


Do you charge extra for written reports?
No. You will receive a FREE confidential written report to show what the final test results are. These can be emailed and/or mailed to you after the completion of the exam with 24 hours.


How long does it take to get the results?
The verbal results for the polygraph test are usually given immediately after the test is completed. The written report for the polygraph test can take up to 24 hours.


How long does it take to get an appointment?
The polygraph format can usually be performed within 1-2 days from the time we receive your service request, depending on your location and our schedule. Depending on an examiner's schedule, it may even be done the same day.


How long does it take to conduct a test?

The polygraph test takes between 1-2 hours to administer.

How do I schedule an appointment or what do I do to get started?
Scheduling a lie detector test is quick and easy. Just decide on a day and time for the testing. Next, create the list of test questions you want the examiner to ask you during the testing. Lastly, you'll pay the deposit (and then pay the balance at the time of the appointment). It's a pretty quick and easy process. Once you're ready to get started, click here.


How do I know that your company is legitimate?
Great question! You want to be sure that you're working with a professional company. We are one of the few companies in our industry that could qualify to become accredited members of the Better Business Bureau in good standing. As a matter of fact, we have an A+ rating with them so you know you are working with a legitimate company. You can go to the BBB account to verify.


How many questions can I ask?
To get the most accurate results, we should not exceed any more than 5 relevant questions. If you have more than 5 questions, we will help you prioritize them and determine which 5 questions will still get the answers you need. In many cases, clients will unknowingly ask the same questions multiple times in various ways. The examiner's goal is to get you the most accurate results.


Why can't I ask more questions?
When the polygraph was created, they discovered that when they asked 5 or less relevant questions, they were able to achieve the highest, most accurate results. They also discovered that when they exceeded the 5 relevant questions that the accuracy rate dropped to nearly 50%!


What types of questions can I ask?
When you compose your list of questions, make sure they are in a "yes" or "no" format and NOT open ended questions. You can ask whatever types of questions you need to prove your innocence with or get answers to. You also want to make sure the questions pertain to the same subject matter.

An example of an infidelity related question may be something like "Have you ever had sexual relations with anyone else besides your wife since you have been married?"

Another example of an infidelity related question may be something like "Did you have sexual relations with Bob Smith?"


Who makes up the test questions?
You, the client, make up the questions that are relevant to your situation. We, as examiners, also provide control and irrelevant questions that are also asked during the formal testing phase to determind a baseline. As a part of the service, we'll review the questions you submit and review them for the best accuracy and make any recommendations to you.


Can you help me create the test questions?
Yes. When you submit your questions to us via the online scheduling form, we review them and make sure they're worded properly and will be happy to offer any suggestions or recommendations. Just make sure the questions you submit are in a "yes" or "no" format and we'll help with the rest.


Does being nervous affect the exam?

No. Everybody is nervous when undergoing a test like this, especially for the first time. Examiners are able to determine your unique "walk in" stress. They measure the changes from your baseline stress to the stress produced by the questions we ask you. So, regardless of how nervous, stressed or upset you are, it will NOT affect the results of the test.


Are the lie detector tests private and confidential?
Yes. Your privacy and confidentiality are safe and secured.


Can someone beat the lie detector tests?
Not likely. Experienced examiners can catch those that are trying to implement strategies or countermeasures.


How does the test process work?
Basically, decide on the day and time you want the test to be conducted, create your list of questions, pay for the test, take the test, get the verbal and written results and get back to life without the accusations or suspicions. Go to the Make Appointment page to learn more.


How should someone prepare for taking a lie detector test?

To prepare for the polygraph test, make sure you're well rested, have no alcohol or drugs in your system and make sure you're ready for the appointment at the correct time so you're not feeling rushed. You will need to allocate between 1-2 hours for the polygraph test.


Are the lie detector tests admissible in court?
Yes, in many courts across the country. Click here to learn more.


Is there a best time of day to give a lie detector test?
Any time of the day or night where you are well rested and can have privacy during the testing is fine. If you're extremely tired or can't find an environment away from distractions, then the results may be effected.


Are the lie detector tests on television real?
In some cases, yes and in other cases, no. Because the polygraph test takes 1-2 hours to perform, it's usually done before a show. Then, while on camera, the examiner will perform a mock polygraph test.

"I have been suspicious of my boyfriend cheating on me, but I wasn't completely sure. After doing some research online I found this company. They were very pleasant to work with even though my situation wasn't very pleasant. My suspicions were confirmed when they found my boyfriend to be unfaithful. Although I'm not happy about being lied to, I am happy to finally have the truth."
