The role a private investigator plays in custody cases.

Private investigators in South Africa work closely with attorneys in order to lay out a plan that’ll give the investigator the information an attorney needs to present a custody case in court.

As a client having to face the difficulties that are attached to custody and visitation investigations, you’ll want to be absolutely sure that the private investigator you’ve hired will take professional responsibility for the investigation.

This is so that you can rely on the quality of the evidence at the end of the investigation.  Let there be no doubt, an unprofessional investigator with no scruples will compromise your case when it comes to court.

The law is complicated around child custody cases, which is why the investigator has to work closely with the attorney, making sure that no extraneous evidence is collected that will be of no value.

It’s unfortunate that child custody cases and visitation cases are among the most common cases that require the services of a private investigator.

Emotions of all parties that have a stake in the decision of the courts run high, which is why there’s no room for mistakes on the part of the investigator.

Any time a child is involved, you’ll need a professional on your side who’ll be able to remain neutral during the process and act with integrity in order to give you honest results.

In many custody cases it’s not only the parents who have a stake in the outcome of the court decision, many other family members also feel the emotional impact of the whole process, which is something any private investigator should also respect.

A private investigator with good communication skills and sensitivity is what you’ll need most while going through a painful experience involving your child.

It’s important that you know as much as possible about the private investigator you hire. Make sure they’ll conduct their investigation in a way that remains true to the code of conduct set out by PSIRA (Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority).

If you look for a private investigator in Johannesburg or Pretoria, or anywhere else in South Africa, make sure they’re registered with PSIRA, if not, forget it.

Because the evidence and final report from the private investigator is going to be presented in court, you need to be very selective about who’ll be handing over the final report to your attorney.

Fictitious allegations won’t cut it in court, before the attorney for the other side is through with the evidence and depositions of others involved in the case, these allegations will be ripped apart.

Remember, your spouse or partner will be using their own private detective, so it’s not worth trying to get one over on the court.

While the attorney will be conducting depositions of the main parties involved in this difficult and painful case, the private investigator will conduct interviews with those who play a lesser role, such as domestic workers, neighbours and even local shop assistants.

The periphery players serve to underpin the depositions of the main players and will include anyone coming into contact with the other party in the custody case.

Surveillance will also play an important role in compiling a comprehensive report that will include time stamped photos and videos. Any suspicion that a child is in any way endangered, abused or neglected will definitely come to light during investigation.

The team at King Investigators in Johannesburg bring to custody cases the integrity and professionalism that’ll allow your attorney to present a case that’ll enable the judge to make an informed decision.

If you’re facing a battle for your child, this is a team that’ll respect you and handle your case with absolute confidentially and sensitivity, delivering honest results that can stand up in court without a doubt.

Hire a local private investigator for the best results in any investigation.

If you need a private investigator to handle any investigation in South Africa, its essential that you hire one that knows everything about the country like the back of his hand.

This means that the investigator has to know the customs of a multi-cultured nation, which would be nigh on impossible for an investigator from overseas.

An investigation in a major city like Pretoria for instance, is going to be completely different to that of one carried out in a small ‘dorp’.

In the city an investigator who knows everything about local hangouts, shopping malls and even some of the more dangerous areas, will be able to become virtually invisible to anyone they’re investigating.

Doing this in a small town is a lot more difficult if the investigator doesn’t understand the culture and the people living there, and blending in is going to call for extensive experience and professionalism so as not to stick out like a sore thumb.

These are the abilities that you should be looking for when hiring a private investigator in South Africa.

King Investigators in Pretoria and Johannesburg is one of these exceptional companies that can deliver this level of versatility and professionalism, consistently producing results founded on great investigative work on the ground.

King Investigators are also the top choice for overseas investigators when they need the assistance of investigators to carry out surveillance on people travelling from abroad to South Africa.

As an owner-managed business, King Investigators has also been involved in surveillance work on the ground in countries as far off the continent as Argentina and Brazil.

This is proof that King Investigators not only excels on the ground in South Africa, but that the team is fully capable of carrying out their professional services overseas.

These local, international and Sub-Saharan investigations are not like a walk in the park, many have been high risk investigations.
