Being human comes with the inevitability that unexpected issues are going to arise. We get blindsided by unpleasant events which need to be addressed, but we aren’t sure how to address them. I’m not talking about something as trivial someone stealing your parking space – everyone knows you get your local assassin to take care of that for you – I’m talking about events which can negatively impact your quality of life. Added to the rest of our everyday tasks, these situations become complicated and exhausting.
Luckily, most of us have a great support system. Whether it be family, friends, or perhaps a good therapist, we do not have to face these unfortunate events alone.
However, sometimes we may not want to get those who are closest to us involved in our issues. They may be too private or we may want to get more information about our situation before we come to a definite conclusion. Whatever our reasons may be, we may still need help. A different kind of help; a private investigator kind of help.
There are many professional reasons to hire a private investigator. They specialize and are experienced in things such as: identity theft, missing persons, personal injury, divorce, child custody, infidelity, and that’s just to name a few. Using a PI can be beneficial when you need a support system which is exclusively catered to your personal needs.
For example, let’s say you haven’t spoken to a friend of yours all week. You haven’t seen hide nor hair of them in three or four days and this is not their usual behavior. You report your suspicion to local law enforcement. But these guys are faced with many criminal issues on a daily basis and – even though they may their best – cannot give us or our missing friend the exclusive attention they need.
With more than 100,000 active missing persons cases open in the US at any given time, not to mention the cases that aren’t associated with missing persons, local law enforcement may find themselves overwhelmed and cannot focus solely on your concert. This is where a PI heroically steps in! After a day or two of searching through databases and some GPS magic, it’s good news to find your friend just ran off for a few weeks with a rich doctor they met while shopping for Christmas decorations from the local hobby shop! It turns out they both really, really, like tinsel. It was on a whim and they forgot to take their phone or leave a note. Tinsel makes you do some crazy, crazy, things.
Sometimes there are not-so-ideal situations which do not require law enforcement, but we still need someone on our side to help us with guidance and information. Divorce – for example – isn’t illegal, but sometimes we still need to gather facts when it comes to matters of the heart and courtroom. Private investigators have access to various databases which averages citizens do not. They can find financial, social networking, and background information you may not have known even existed; which can be especially helpful in custody cases!
Situations which may require a helpful hand from a PI include:
- Infidelity / Cheating Spouse
- Insurance Fraud
- Child Custody
- Background Checks & Pre-Employment Screening
- GPS Tracking
- Criminal Investigations
- Skip Trace & Missing Person Locates
- Process Service (subpoena services)
A PI can legally and professionally acquire information for you which could be useful in court cases and custody hearings.
