Dedicated to Truth Through Professionalism


Over-the-phone lie detection is a Scam. Please do not become a victim.

Stand-alone Voice Stress Analyzers are not allowed in Virginia. The examiner must be licensed by the state and it can only be used in conjunction with the polygraph instrument.

How much does a polygraph cost?

This is a question many people have when looking for a polygraph/lie detection examination. If you are working with a certified examiner who is a member of a nationally recognized organization, you are working with a professional.

Usually, anyone who quotes you a price of around $250 is someone of little experience, does polygraph testing as a sideline to their other business, and/or does not participate in advanced and continuing education.

Ask for their experience and credentials and have them send you the information for your review.

Also ask if they are using the latest advanced computerized polygraph equipment.

If they try to avoid the issue or will not provide you the information, then this is not the examiner for you.

You want to confirm the truth on a personal matter and you want it done by a professional who specializes only in polygraph.


Legal/Criminal matters:   $500.00

Domestic Relations/Infidelity matters and personal trust issues: $375.00. 

Couples testing: If both tests are conducted during the same appointment slot the cost for the second test is $200.00:

Maintenance/Monitoring testing: $375.00 for first test and $300.00 for periodic testing.

Maintenance/Monitoring testing is for individuals with addictive and habitual behaviors i.e., sexual misconduct, drugs, shoplifting etc.

The initial test is to assure full disclosure of past behaviors and periodic testing is then conducted on an ongoing basis to assure there has been no reoccurring deviant activity.

Periodic testing may be random, monthly or every six months as desired.
