1 When I know the information you already have, I do a preliminary search; no obligation. The purpose is to see how easy or hard it is to get the search started. The outcome makes it easier for you to decide if you want to go on

 

2 I outline a search after we have made an agreement of a limited number of hours; whatever you are comfortable with

 

During the work I keep you informed about the progress or the search. You can terminate the agreement at any time during the process and an unused portion will be returned

 

You decide if you want and need to extend the search when you know the result of the previous search
