Private Investigator Use
The thought of hiring a Private Investigator regarding a family matter may be something you never imagined would be necessary. The reality is surveillance and/or special research may prove to be valuable or simply a smart proactive decision. After all, knowledge is power!
The purpose of family investigations is for a third-party professional to observe and document activities on your behalf. The goal is to obtain factual and truthful information for the client. In some cases, the investigator can be utilized to provide court testimony on their findings. There is a wide range of family scenarios where surveillance or other investigative techniques are needed and the following are some examples.
The most obvious and common scenario is the suspected Unfaithful Spouse/Significant Other. Considering the emotionally charged nature of this, when the subject’s location as well as activities need to be verified it is best to leave this to the investigator. Whether infidelity is confirmed or probable based on the investigation, you are empowered to make informed decisions going forward. The preserved evidence may even be beneficial for upcoming court proceedings.
There could be concerning situations during or after a Divorce Where Children Are Involved that need to be monitored by an investigator. Maybe your ex is romantically involved with a new and unsavory person and the new love interest should be monitored. Many activities could come to light during this type of surveillance such as; leaving children at home unattended, driving with children while intoxicated, abuse, illegal activities, inappropriate conduct, unknown places of employment, etc.
Monitoring Your Teenagers Activity is a smart move for parents. If you are going out of town and are concerned about the activities of your teen in your absence, then an investigator can keep you informed. Maybe your teen is going out of town for the weekend and you are suspicious that he/she is not being honest about their destination or intended activities. An investigator can either give you some piece of mind in this scenario or empower you to react accordingly to any concerns discovered. Being proactive regarding your teenager can be critical. These investigations could help prevent a disaster before it occurs and/or potential legal charges.
Monitoring Your Elderly Family Members in a vulnerable stage of life is vital. The Elderly are highly susceptible to scams which could require an investigators assistance. Perhaps you have had concerns about a parent’s continued driving abilities, an investigator can observe their driving habits and provide dash cam video recordings. In circumstances where your elderly loved one has a caregiver in the home with them you may want an investigator to do random well checks on their behalf. If you have become suspicious of your loved one’s caregiver, then surveillance may be needed to insure your loved one is not being left unattended and is properly cared for.
Monitoring Your Young Child’s Caregiver while you are at work is always recommended. If you have someone in your home caring for your child you should consider installing covert Nanny Cams or plain view surveillance cameras throughout the home. You can choose to make the caregiver aware that there are surveillance cameras in the home so you can remotely check in on your child through the day. However, you may become suspicious of the caregiver’s activity when leaving the home with the child and that is where an investigator can become your eyes and ears. The greatest piece of mind is when the investigator can provide positive feedback on the caregiver’s activities during time frames the caregiver didn’t think anyone was watching.
Every family dynamic is unique and whatever the circumstances may be, if consulting a private investigator has crossed your mind then it is worth exploring.
