The moment you have a suspicion is the moment to act
We have all seen the movies and TV shows with the private investigator secretly tailing someone to collect evidence for their client. While the depictions can sometimes be a bit far-fetched, the notion of hiring a private investigator to conduct surveillance is possible.
There are several reasons you may need a private investigator to perform covert reconnaissance:
The brief answer is yes. Private investigators have the authority, as part of their professional licences, to conduct surveillance on behalf of their clients. Any evidence obtained legally by a private investigator can be used in court, a tribunal, or negotiations.
Despite what you may see in the movies, our private investigators do not break laws to obtain a photo or video documentation on your behalf. Our agents must comply with all laws whilst in the commission of evidence-gathering, including those about trespassing. Spousebusters consists of a licensed investigation team with years of experience conducting discreet and legal surveillance on behalf of our clients.
Our private investigators keep detailed notes on their observations during a case. They also provide both still photos and video footage. Any surveillance evidence turned over to clients can become part of an annexure to an affidavit. What that means is you are indicating the surveillance findings into evidence in a pending court case. Fraud investigations, child custody suits, and divorces are among the kinds of court cases where surveillance evidence is commonly admitted.
Trying to conduct surveillance on your own can backfire and is most likely not admissible in court. If you have an issue that requires surveillance, hiring an experienced investigator is the best way to guarantee results. Our team of investigators at Spousebusters have an extensive understanding of legal compliance and conduct every investigation with the care and diligence it deserves.
