What is Surveillance?
Surveillance is the close observation of a person, place, or object. It is the practice of watching a subject in order to document and identify any of the contact, interactions, or whereabouts of the subject in question.
Surveillance can be the most difficult part of any investigation but if done correctly it can produce some of the best evidence possible.
When and Why we use Surveillance...
Divorce and Infidelity
Infidelity is common and is often the cause of the demise of a relationship.
There is nothing wrong with having the most important person in your life checked out. It is 100% legal.
We are licensed to perform surveillance and will get you the facts.
Nothing could be more devastating than the thought of losing your child in a custody battle. If the parents are unable to reach an agreement as to whom that is, the court will decide custody matters based on what is in the “best Interest” of the child.
However, with divorce proceedings on the rise, millions of children are trapped in legal battles the court system is ill-equipped to handle. As a result, children are being subjected to visitation or habitation with unfit parents at an equally alarming rate.
Child Custody/Visitation Investigations are undertaken to determine if the “Other” Parent is treating your child properly, ensuring their safety and protecting them from improper or dangerous environments or situations. In other words, are they fit and qualified for custody or visitation.
Often times, an unfit parent will present themselves as a competent person when appearing before the court, cleverly concealing their unsuitable lifestyle. Typically under these circumstances, parental testimony is not enough to ensure the placement of your child in your custody.
In a custody battle, it is your responsibility to provide proof of your allegations. For this reason, a qualified private investigator can be essential. A licensed private investigator’s findings, objective courtroom testimony and video documentation will always have more credence in court than a parent’s accusations.
Surveillance isn't as glamorous or as easy as TV. makes it out to be. Surveillance can require hours upon hours sitting in a vehicle. Surveillance requires more than one investigator to be effective. Real life has no script or time limit for justice to be served. This means it is more difficult to follow your target thru traffic, weather conditions and just simply not being 100% on where they might be going.
However, we find that no matter what case we are working that requires surveillance it is always worth it and rewarding to be able to turn the facts over to our clients.
