Domestic or Family investigations are one of the most common reasons private investigators are hired, and they can give you the results you need to get real peace of mind.
According to statistics, private investigators spend the majority of their time working on domestic investigations. Despite this fact, investigators report that clients coming to them for help with domestic matters often are reluctant or are embarrassed to share personal problems. The truth is that there is no reason to be shy about seeking out a domestic investigator. Not only are many investigators very experienced in this type of case, but the results from domestic investigations can dramatically improve your life. Consider the types of investigations that can help you:
Infidelity and Divorce
Divorce investigations and infidelity investigations can help you determine whether your spouse or partner is unfaithful. With more than 85% of women, and 80% of men correct in their suspicions about their partner's unfaithfulness, the truth is that if you have a sneaking suspicion, you may be right, and an investigator can tell you for sure. Rest assured that private investigators are very discreet about trailing unfaithful spouses. They can even provide you with visual or audio evidence if that is what you need to put your mind at ease. Private investigators deal with hundreds of these cases each year and can help you find out what you need to know.
Child Custody Investigations
Child custody and child support investigations help to keep your child safe and well-cared for. Investigators can run asset searches and missing person searches in order to obtain the child support you have been awarded by a court. With the Department of Health and Human Services reporting that more than 46% of non-custodial mothers and more than 26% of non-custodial fathers totally default on support, these services are very common across the country today. Child custody investigations also can help ensure that the non-custodial parent does not neglect or abuse the child while they are in their care. This is critical when you consider that since between 1976 and 1997, 11,000 children were murdered and thousands more were injured by parents or caregivers, according to the Present Federal Interagency Forum on Child and Family Statistics.
Background Checks and Criminal Investigations
Background and criminal investigations allow you to research those you trust in your home. According to statistics, 14% of child abuse cases involve a babysitter, nanny or another caregiver. With up to 10% of the American population having a criminal background, running criminal and background checks on anyone you trust inside your home just makes sense. Only an investigator can run these sorts of checks thoroughly, accurately, and with every concern for discretion.
Missing Persons Investigations
Missing person investigations can help you find deadbeat parents, children, and other members of your family who have disappeared. Over 2300 Americans are reported missing each day under various circumstances so that private investigators hear about many types of cases.
Surveillance and Home Security
Surveillance cameras and services can improve your home's security, according to some case studies. You can work with private investigators to work out a good balance between your security and your privacy so that you can feel completely comfortable and safe.
Biological parent and child locator services help adoptive families find their biological roots. The National Adoption Information Clearinghouse reporting that more than one million children in the country live with two adoptive parents, finding biological parents or children is big business. It can also be a key investigation because it can provide adopted children with needed medical family histories.
Accident and abuse or incident investigation can help determine exactly what happens in a domestic incident. With 2/3 of homes affected by domestic violence and with domestic violence being the number one cause of emergency room visits by women, according to Women's Rural Advocacy Programs, these investigations are very common. These investigations can provide the evidence that women need to face their attackers in court.
Drug screening can help determine whether anyone in your family is abusing drugs. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 3.8% of minors aged 12 to 13 reported use of illegal drugs, and that percentage grows with age. An investigator can help run a thorough and discreet investigation that gets you answers about what is happening under your own roof. Our Drug Detection Dog team is a simple non-intrusive way to begin the process. No matter what type of domestic investigation you need, hire the best investigator you can and work closely with them for the best possible outcome.
