Civil Investigations

A civil investigation helps uncover and assemble the information needed for a civil trail. A civil trial is the opposite of a criminal trail. In most cases, this type of court case involves two individual citizens who are arguing about an issue that relates to their rights as citizens. For example, if one person sues another for damages caused in a domestic accident, the case will likely be tried in a civil trial. Civil investigations are utilized to gather the evidence that is essential to such a trial.

A civil investigation typically begins with an analysis. A private investigator will usually meet with the person launching the investigation to discuss the needs of the investigation, the budget allotted for the investigation and how the case should proceed. Then, the investigator will approach the case, using a variety of investigative techniques to get answers and evidence as needed. Depending on the investigation, investigators may use surveillance, background checks, medical or forensic investigations, witness examination, and other methods they feel fit to solve the case. The investigator will then meet with the client again to discuss findings. If needed, an investigator can create an official report or even act as an expert witness in a civil trial.

 

Types of Civil Investigations:

  • Domestic Surveillance, which can include nanny cams, caregiver background checks, security surveillance, and many other types of investigations ensure that you and everyone in your home remain safe.

Signs of Cheating

  1. Changes in intimacy: A distinct increase or decrease in intimacy and affection levels or sexual preferences may hint indicate infidelity.

  2. Suspicious phone habits: A spouse that hides his or her phone or is secretive about their call logs and text messages may be cheating.

  3. Changes in appearance: A marked change in style of dress, intimate wear, and/or personal hygiene can be a clue.

  4. Suspicious internet use: Much like phone habits, a cheating spouse may be overly secretive when it comes to their browser history and general internet and computer habits.

  5. Changes in work routine: It may seem like a cliché but a husband or wife that suddenly needs to “work late” or “go to a conference” frequently is a sign of infidelity.

  6. Changes in bathing habits: A spouse that showers right when they get home, switches cologne or perfume or changes their grooming habits can be a sign of cheating.
