4 Reasons private individuals will hire a private investigator.

Although an investigative company like King Investigators in Pretoria offers business intelligence and due diligence investigations for companies, they’re highly experienced in carrying out investigations for individuals in their private capacity as well.

There are many reasons that an individual would hire a private investigator, but the bottom line is that they need a consummate professional to gather incontrovertible evidence in personal matters.

It takes skill to uncover information and to carry out surveillance, which is why it’s best you hire a private investigator with an impeccable reputation to gather the evidence you require in your specific case.

Here are 4 reasons private individuals will hire a private investigator:

  • Divorce:

Infidelity and divorce often go hand in hand, and if suspicions of infidelity are raised in a marriage, only a professional is able to provide irrefutable evidence that can be used in court.

Anything less will be of no value once lawyers start tearing evidence apart.

A private investigator is highly trained in remaining discreet and being able to observe the subject of an investigation without having their cover blown.  A professional investigator also knows the dos and don’ts of gathering evidence, so that all evidence is gathered according to strict industry standards.

Other reasons a private investigator may be involved in divorce cases is to gather evidence of any drug use and other illegal activities the subject is involved in that may lead to a positive outcome for the client during a divorce case.

2       Child custody and child abuse:

When parents are fighting for custody or to retain child custody rights it’s generally a very contentious issue, cutting to the core of any responsible parent who wants to give their child the best in a difficult situation.

If there is any suspicion that there is neglect, negligence or abuse taking place when a child is with the other parent, evidence that cannot be disputed needs to be gathered by a professional to give the results any weight when it comes to the custody case.

Making sure that the other parent is sticking to custody arrangements is another reason that individuals hire private investigators.

Custody arrangements are there to be observed for the protection and safety of the child. This is of paramount importance to the court, and if any part of the arrangement is being compromised, the welfare of the child will be placed above all else and custody arrangements amended according to evidence provided to back up these claims.

3       Family issues:

When parents are concerned that their children are involved in dangerous behaviour and illicit drug use, a private investigator will gather the evidence necessary to confirm suspicions, so that parents and other family members are able to intervene to protect their children from further damaging behaviour.

A spouse may also call in a private investigator to find out whether or not their spouse is involved in gambling, drug use or any other dangerous activities.

4       Domestic Abuse:

Unfortunately, most people who are victims of domestic abuse find it difficult to prove domestic abuse without the aid of a professional investigator.

The private investigator is able to assist the victim of domestic abuse to record everything they can about the abuse they’re living with, whether physical, mental, sexual or emotional.

The evidence that a private investigator is able to uncover in the course of a domestic abuse case is of great value where it comes to seeking protective orders, divorce or child custody cases.

The families of those abused often hire a private investigator to gather as much evidence as possible to allay or confirm their suspicions before any action is taken to protect the family member being abused.
