A private detective is the here and now answer to a problem. They can make discreet inquiries, conduct covert surveillance, investigate a matter or conduct a background check; they are experienced in gathering evidence and researching matters. In Australia we are generally licensed as a private investigator, but the terms private investigator and private detective are interchangeable.
Covert surveillance is one of the major areas of service for private investigation. Private detective surveillance, when done correctly, is legal, and the evidence obtained can be used for court purposes. Convert surveillance is the discreet observation of an unaware subject to observe and report actions, interactions, movements and capacities. It is not designed to be intrusive. It is a method of proving or disproving a theory or establishing a fact. It is often used for civil actions, relationship inquiries, Workcover investigations, child custody disputes, separation property disputes, witness claim verification (unable to be deposed as too ill, or otherwise incapacitated), and many other types of investigation. We have licensed, experienced, private detectives, private investigators, to investigate for you. Private investigations are legal, when done correctly; the evidence from the investigation can be used for court.
Factual investigation is the overt acts of investigating. It is about locating and preserving evidence for later production to a court. These investigations involve making inquiries, talking to people, following leads and evidence, formal interviews, the taking of affidavits, the dissection of opposition briefs, and the compilation of briefs of evidence. It may include specialist examination and the preparation of expert evidence. Some investigations such as HR investigations (complaints against or by employees, allegations against employees) and fraud matters, can be complex. Some can be delicate. These investigations can be frustrating slow at times, but patience wins, and it is always appreciated when experienced private investigators are bought in early, whilst memories are fresh and evidence is untainted, or electronic evidence has not been over written.
Child custody dispute investigations can be difficult, as there is almost always an emotional component to the desires of the client, and other parties; we attempt to be as careful as possible about not making false promises about outcomes, as no outcome is guaranteed until the task is complete. Often the most accessible evidence is not the direct evidence of something suspected of happening behind closed doors, but the provable breaches of conditions that we can provide evidence about, which go towards the integrity of the other party; these are sometimes the building blocks that assist in redirecting a decision, or supporting a version of the state of things.
Workcover, Safework or Worksafe insurance claim investigation is another area where a private investigator (also called a private detective) is utilised. They are used for surveillance investigations where a claimed injury or restriction is suspect, or inconsistent, as well as for due diligence investigations where a major exposure exist relating to a civil claim. Factual investigation, such as locating and interviewing witnesses is also part of this process. A private investigator may provide a means to show that an employee or former employee has launched a frivolous, vexatious or fraudulent claim; this can include times when a claim is initially accepted, but subsequently suspicion is raised but the insurer refuses to investigate, and insists the employer prove their allegations. A private detective is there to search for information, to gather evidence, to prove or disprove a theory or establish the facts, or to conduct Workcover surveillance, to discreetly confirm or deny a claimed restriction.
A suspect affair, infidelity, cheating, and other types of relationship investigation is often linked to future child custody and/or property settlement investigations. We are there to confirm or deny a suspicion, verify a fact or gather intelligence to determine what is actually happening; sometimes the client knows what is going on, sometimes the client knows who the other party is, sometimes the client suspects something but is unsure what the problem actually is, they just know behavior has changed. The outcomes of investigations have proved that sometimes the initial information is correct, but sometimes the outcome is surprising, such as a hidden gambling problem, or a hidden family (two families, two cities, neither knew about the other).
