When should I hire a Private Investigator?

You may never have considered your own personal need for a private investigator. There are circumstances in all our lives when we may need to gather information in a professional and discreet way.

These could include:

  • Marriage disputes or divorce settlements
  • A suspected cheating wife, husband or partner
  • Custody or child maintenance issues
  • Worker’s compensation queries
  • Concern for a family member or loved one
  • Locating a missing person
  • Harassment and stalking issues
  • Suspected drug or other illegal activities
  • Corporate or Government requirements

Case study 1:

Joan (not her real name) met Mario (not his real name) at a bar. Their brief conversation and exchanging of phone numbers led to coffee dates, dinners and an intimate relationship. Joan had no idea of Mario’s past and enquired little, being blinded by her new found love. 

Joan was unaware that Mario had a criminal past and was the perpetrator of violence in a string of failed relationships. Joan also didn’t know that Mario was wanted by police as he had stolen almost $100,000 from an ex girlfriend. 

Had Joan been armed with this information sooner, she would have not pursued this relationship which led to abuse at the hands of Mario and theft from her savings. 

 Case study 2: 

Suzie (not her real name) was granted full custody by the courts of the children of her failed relationship with John (not his real name). John was allowed to have his children stay over every second weekend as well as a weekly dinner and play time on Wednesdays. 

John had no idea that Suzie was leaving the children with her own mother for days and days on end whilst she went to pubs and parties and was involved in illicit drug use. 

Once this information came to light, John quickly took the matter back to court along with our agent’s testimony and video evidence. The court quickly ordered the children be in the custody of the father with the mother granted supervised visitation. 

Case study 3: 

Ralph was organizing a year ten school reunion for his class of 1965. With names and rough dates of birth, Ralph struggled to find all of his old classmates, particularly the females who had now married and changed their surname. Many had moved interstate and some even overseas. 

With the assistance of a Private Investigator, Ralph was able to make contact with all of his old classmates and arrange a great reunion.  

Hiring a professional private investigator will minimise the potential danger of obtaining information by undercover surveillance; and ensure that correct, acceptable evidence is obtained, in an effective, legal way through the use of professional skills and technology, without wasted time or money.
