    *HOW YOUR STATE LICENSE IS ISSUED:
    1) We start by incorporating your headquarters in Colorado (because of Colorado's exclusive identity and asset protection laws for corporate owners, plus because of the low maintenance of only $99 per year for your entire corporation fees and headquarters office plan). For more details on why we choose Colorado: Click Here

    2) We then establish a confidential and private presidential forum for you and our professional team to work out your personal needs and wishes for obtaining a licensed private investigator to sponsor you and your corporation for a state PI agency license.

    3) Once all of the required state documents, insurance, and other applications have been settled, then IPIU will use it's vast resources of over 40,000+ private investigators to obtain a sponsor for your PI Agency License. (We typically receive many more applicants to sponsor your agency than you will ever need, because we secure sponsors using our own proprietary methods. Although rare, in the event a suitable sponsor is not immediately available, we will continue to work diligently in securing a sponsor until you have succeeded).

    4) From the number of the sponsors we obtain on your behalf, we will perform the initial interview for prescreening. Once completed, you will interview the best choice(s) and choose the sponsor you want for your agency license. You may also wish to maintain a few back-up sponsors too.

    5) All state applications, including the signature of your sponsor, are mailed to the state as a preapproved package. Your hard copy license is typically issued within a few weeks, depending upon the state.

    6) Because you are both the president of your agency, plus an employee of your agency, you can generally qualify as a licensed employed private investigator under the main primary Agency License you have.

    7) Once yo have your state agency license and your personal PI license, then your "agency" will immediately begin hiring you on a fixed salary for full time 40 hours a week (no matter how low the "salary" is). This begins an official "corporate payroll record" to verify in three years that you would have worked three years (or approximately 6000 hours) as a full time private investigator, should you wish to relieve your sponsor at that time.

    8) At the end of three years, you can then start the qualification process to obtain your own personal PI license without the further need of a sponsor. (Although you may be tempted to dismiss your sponsor in 3 years, our polls show that sponsors are typically kept on with the agency in another ongoing spare-time or part-time capacity because of their unique skills and clients they may bring to the agency).

    CAUTIONS:
    Do not attempt to represent yourself when soliciting for a sponsor. Remember the motto, "Talent cannot represent itself. Talent must always use an Agent." Choose IPIU to solicit for your sponsor and you will not be embarrassed with the typical rejection that so often accompanies a personal request for a "hand-out".

    Do not take the non-corporation road. If you choose to go into business as a sole owner without incorporating, you are opening yourself up for enormous risk and potential lawsuits against your personal assets, home, salary. Allow IPIU to incorporate your agency headquarters in the safest state nationwide, at the lowest corporation renewal fees ever.

    SUMMARY:
    3 Steps to Approval of your PI License:
    1. Become a Lifetime Corporate Member and request a Corporation Headquarters Plan

    2. Complete the free basic training manual and PI Union License instructions, and obtain your web site and approved free business cards.

    3. Once you have the SPONSOR INSTRUCTIONS posted in your private agency forum, and you have your corporation kit, begin a private forum dialog with our professional team to select and settle the specific needs, insurance, and state applications before choosing your sponsor. This process can take as few as 4-5 days on IPIU's part, depending on other factors. Interviewing your selected sponsor may take a few more days.

    4. After your sponsor signs the remaining documents, your preapproved license package is mailed to the state for the issuing of your hard copy license.

    Lifetime Corporate Members never have to go out looking for a sponsor. IPIU will always do that for you. We have over 40,000 contacts to get several sponsors for you. There is no list to give you. We perform a telephone interview with prospective sponsors and verify their credentials. Then we simply provide you with the applicant(s) who wishes to sponsor your agency so that you can meet or speak to them in order to make your choice. The last one we did in Pennsylvania had over 70 licensed sponsors for the owner to choose from.

Is it a must that I do apply as a corporation opposed to operating as an individual?
    The sponsorship benefit through IPIU requires a corporation, because your sponsor has to be listed on the corporate documents as a sponsor.

    OR:
    1) If you already have the 3-years experience (6000+ earned hours as an employed investigator) to qualify for an individual state PI license, then you can go ahead and apply now individually without incorporating yourself. But your personal name will be exposed and becomes a public record in New York as a licensed PI. Or, you can have IPIU incorporate you anonymously to protect your personal name and personal assets (in case their is a lawsuit later against you)

    2) If you do NOT have the 3-years experience (6000+ earned hours as an employed investigator) to qualify for an individual state PI license, then you would have to locate a willing licensed PI or agency to provide you with full time employment for the next 3 years (or the next 6 years if part-time) in order to FIRST qualify for your personal individual PI license.

    3) Remember, running any business as an individual and not a corporation has many risks and limitations involved. Setting up the proper corporation through IPIU will allow you to obtain an "agency license" which can employ as many licensed PI's with their names becoming part of a pubic record. Also, your corporation "lifetime membership" (through IPIU) provides for two ADDITIONAL FREE PERSONAL LIFETIME MEMBERSHIPS for either your family, partner, or colleague.

    Your part may take approximately 5-6 weeks. Once you have passed the online training manual as a private investigator member, and have received your PI Union License, then upon the posting of your official sponsor instructions in your new agency forum, our part (the labor and professional review) can take approximately 5-6 business days to get all of your corporate applications and documents prepared with your approval. Once approved, it takes approximately 7 days to complete the telephone interviews for us to provide you with the name(s) and contact details of who you want to choose for a sponsor. Once you make your choice (based on either your interview or phone call with your prospective sponsor(s) and the documents are all signed, then you are preapproved for your agency license and the hard copy license is printed and mailed to you (generally in a few weeks, depending on the state)
    Quote Originally Posted by Joseph Lebron View Post

    Yes.

    Another role you will have is President of the PI Agency, which gives you the authority to sign off on other employees your agency wants to "hire".

    Your sponsor will simply be one of your vice presidents of the PI Agency you own, and will only work spare-time cases you need worked that you cannot work.

    You can then start advertising as a licensed PI and start working cases. Pay yourself a full time 40 hour salary (no matter how small in dollars) for the next 3 years. Your company books will show you (in 3 years) have worked full time as a private investigator for a licensed agency. You can then proceed to qualify as your own sponsor at that time for your own agency.

    As for you sponsor for the next three years, I suspect by then you will keep your sponsor on as a regular spare-time PI for his/her specialized skills, resources, and abilities. A 3-year relationship is worth keeping when it no longer requires you of anything.

    Re: Obtain preapproval of your Private Investigators License in as few as 5-6 weeks without waiting 3 years

    Hi,

    I just purchased the "Corporate Agency Kit", but after carefully reading all the corporate forums and information on owning my own foreign agency. I decided that this lifetime membership kit is the perfect designation for me. My question is, What is the difference in price for me, since I've been a professional Member for about six months, and just paid another $299 for the corporate kit?

    You can have this emailed email to me if need be. Thank you.

    Hi

    So are thes sponsors, just individual licensed P.I.s in our same state that will be training us, Oe that we can shadow for the in the field experience? Or are they Corporation business owners that are hiring us on into their agencies and training us for the next 3 years. Also, does working independently for MSP companies count toward our in field training of 3/yr requirement?

    Thank you,


    Kim R.

    Answer:
    Sponsors hold a PI License in the state where you want to obtain your own agency license. The primary reason they are a sponsor is less about training and more about lending their license to use in getting your own state agency license immediately. The secondary motive of some sponsors may be to help the new owner become trained in various aspects of the field and running a business. All sponsors have their own specialty, which is beneficial to the new agency owner.

    Quote Originally Posted by Kim Collins View Post

    Answer:
    Yes. As the owner of the agency (you), sponsors can work your cases where you feel less qualified to perform. They work at a wholesale rate allowing themselves to work a portion of the case, and you as the owner of the agency earn the remainder of the client fee. So both of you earn money, and you can ride along or tag along because the case belongs to your agency.

    Quote Originally Posted by Kim Collins View Post

    Answer:
    No. They are not hiring you. You are hiring them in a spare-time as-needed basis to work available cases only if you choose. The decision for paying a sponsor for anything rests with you, as the owner of the agency. The primary motive of the sponsor is not to train you, but provide you with the use of their personal license for the next 2-3 years in order for you, as a paid employee private investigator of your own agency, will have the 2-3 years documented experience to get transfer the agency license sponsor to your personal license. In most cases, when the three years comes about, the sponsor and the owner choose to keep the relationship.

    Quote Originally Posted by Kim Collins View Post

    Answer:
    Yes and no. It depends on the finaly structure of your corporation license and business. As a sole propriator who does not have a corporation, the answer is typically "no". But as a corporation agency owner, many times the experience can count. But it would be best to explore this in your private agency forum link here:
