Why do people hire private investigators?

No one gets to the truth in any case as quickly and successfully as a private investigator can.  That is, if the private investigator you hire has the right credentials and sterling reputation of course.

Combining a variety of skills, undercover surveillance and other tools of the trade, a private investigations firm like King Investigators works hard on your behalf to get results that will uncover the truth in any matter.

No one ever wants to be in a position that calls for the services of a private investigator, but for some individuals or businesses it may become necessary, in order to gather evidence of wrongdoing in many different scenarios.

Whether the evidence is going to be presented in court or not, through King Investigators you’ll have evidence that has been collected in accordance with the code of conduct enforced by PSIRA, which governs the industry in South Africa.

Evidence that’s manufactured or illegally obtained won’t be worth anything to you, especially if it comes to a court case.

Here are some of the reasons people hire a private investigator:


This is one of the main reasons people hire a private investigator in South Africa.  It is a specialised field that calls for a lot of undercover surveillance experience so that the party being investigated remains unaware of being surveyed.

If the alarm bells in your sixth sense are telling you that something’s not right, you need to make sure that you hire the number one cheating spouse detective in Gauteng to handle your case successfully.

Child custody

The greatest tug of war in a divorce is normally custody of children. In the case of a spouse that needs to prove the other party isn’t sticking to custody arrangements, or threatening the safety of a child, a lawyer will call on the services of a private investigator to provide the proof needed to protect the child.


Surveillance is a skill that requires a great deal of experience and an ability on the part of an investigator to think on his feet, and to be able to melt into the crowd, without being noticed.

Surveillance is used in many types of cases, such as:


Employee theft

Workman’s compensation fraud

Insurance fraud

Theft of company secrets and more

Tracing missing persons

As long as the reason you’re trying to find someone isn’t illegal, King Investigators will trace adopted children and other long lost relatives, an old flame or someone that has skipped out on a civil case.

Business investigations

Investigations carried out by King Investigators for businesses include employee background checks, background checks on someone you may be interested in bringing on board as a partner, or, finding hidden assets that could prove a case of fraud.

Financial investigations and counterintelligence are also in the scope of business investigations carried out by this team of professionals.
