Divorce? 5 Reasons For Hiring A Private Investigator

hiring a private investigatorRelationships are complex, even when they may seem “normal.” When divorce occurs the complexity of a relationship increases. Here are six reasons that shed light on why hiring a private investigator may make sense when divorce occurs.

1. Hidden Money — Many times a divorce is a process that begins long before the lawyers are involved. In that time, there is plenty of opportunity for one spouse or the other to hide assets such as money. After all, if money is successfully hidden, then they don’t have to split it with the person they are divorcing.
2. Impact Custody Decisions — Many divorces involve custody of children. In situations where addiction is an issue, a private investigator can successfully show illicit behavior that impacts the safety of your children. That evidence can help your case in court.

3. Can Prove Reasons for Divorce Including Infidelity — For many marriages, infidelity is a deal breaker. Hiring a private investigator can provide solid evidence of infidelity and help the aggrieved party make an informed decision about divorce.

4. Improve the Safety of Children — If your spouse has already moved in with a new romantic partner, a private investigator can run background checks on that person to make sure that they are fit to be around children. They can help uncover child predators, felons, and people with an unscrupulous past.

5. Expose Criminal Activities — If your spouse is involved in crime, a private investigator can expose the criminal activity. Such evidence goes a long way in helping you decide if a divorce is right for you and can help keep children safe too.

Provide Closure — Have you spent years wondering about infidelity? Do you wonder if your spouse really works late? There are many reasons that people file for divorce and hiring a private investigator can help fill in the blanks for you. You can find out the truth and then make a decision to file for divorce or to work out your problems. Not all divorces are caused by cheating or abuse. Sometimes people just grow apart. Whatever the reasons for your divorce, a private investigator has your best interests at heart. When you need the truth, whether it is ugly or a surprise, a private investigator has the skills and experience to help you find answers to your questions.

Private Investigator – Not a DIY Business

Private investigators can help if you suspect someone is cheating you in a business or personal relationship, you need to have proof before accusing them. In today’s legalistic society, where people sue one another for just about any wrongdoing, the proof is even more imperative.  If your suspicions are wrong, you stand the chance of your suspect turning the tables on you for slander or defamation of character.

You may notice initial signs of dishonesty – like catching a person in lies or deceitful actions. Don’t try to follow them or investigate them yourself.  If your suspicions are correct, you’re probably not planning to resolve your problem in a TV court drama or daytime talk show.  You’ll need something that will stand up in a court of law.  Here are some reasons why you hire a private investigator and not try to do it yourself:

Safety – If this person is as unscrupulous as you think, you need to keep yourself out of danger.  Following someone and getting the right information can lead to dangerous situations.  Private investigators are trained to keep themselves safe.

Professionalism – Conducting a thorough investigation requires asking the right questions of the right people in the right way.  Private investigators know how to do this professionally, discreetly and carefully.  They are objective, detached and unemotional in situations where you may not be.

Techniques – Private investigators have access to advanced technology and investigating techniques that will get the most information in the least amount of time for the least amount of trouble.  They’ve already invested in high-speed cameras for close-up photography and sensitive microphones for recording dialogue, so you won’t have to.

Experience – An experienced private investigator is invaluable.  Because of their experience, they don’t make mistakes.  Their investigations are handled with integrity and finesse, and you can be confident that the information they report is accurate.

Legality – The techniques, professionalism and experience that a private investigator brings to your case can make all the difference in whether your case holds up in court.  Be sure to confirm that the investigator will testify in a court of law to his or her findings.

Know when to hire the professionals, and don’t do it yourself.

Professional Security Guard Service and Your Business: A Safe Combination

professional-security-guardConsidering hiring a professional security guard service?  From knowing the combination of the office safe to keeping your employees and your property protected, maintaining security can be a full-time job.  It can also seem like a big expense.  It’s a little like insurance coverage – if you have insufficient security and there’s a breach, the expense will be even greater.  It could cost you your business, or worse yet, a life.

Hiring a professional security guard service can actually save your business money.  How?

First, a professional security guard service will provide you with a safety plan that they will implement, so you don’t have to.  Instead of trying to monitor security, you can go back to doing what you do best – running your business.

Next, simply the presence of a professional security guard service on the premises can be a deterrent for thieves, vandals or shoplifters.  While video surveillance cameras are a good investment, the sight of a uniformed guard monitoring those cameras sends a clear message to wrong-doers.   Their actions are not only caught on camera, someone is actually watching the video and can take immediate action, including physically going after the criminal.  Because most people will do things the easy way, the presence of the security guard has just deterred the lazy criminal.  Incidents of on-site pilfering or vandalism that cost you money in inventory or repairs will be significantly reduced.  In addition, the guard’s presence is reassuring to employees and visitors.

Outsourcing your security needs also saves your company money because you don’t have to interview, hire and train one or more employees, or pay salary and benefits.  You get professionally trained, experienced guards who know how to react in all security situations.  This experience can make all the difference in the event of an emergency.

Partnering with a professional security guard service allows you the flexibility of calling for added or new security any time you feel it’s necessary.  In short, it’s a safe combination.

Event Security Tips

Event Security – Are you planning an outdoor event?

Here are 6 key considerations to ensure your event is safe and fun for everyone.

1. Hire an Onsite Security Guard Service

Hiring an onsite security guard service helps keep your event safe in many ways. The presence of security guards often serves as a deterrent to criminal activity. An event security guard service provides professional guards to patrol the grounds, monitor activity and provide crowd management keeping your event safe and fun.

2. Understand the Potential Hazards of the Event Site

Prior to the event, a visit to the site will help you visualize any possible problem areas that are potentially a danger to your visitors. You should be aware of natural hazards like ponds or rivers. Verify that the lighting is adequate and can be patrolled by your security service.

3. Ensure all proper permits and licenses are obtained and local and/or state authorities are aware you are planning an event.
If something terrible befalls your event, the authorities/emergency will be prepared to respond. It’s also preferable to ask your onsite event security service to work with these local entities so that all teams are in communication and ready to spring into action if necessary.

4. Create Boundaries

Rope off restricted areas and post signage regarding trespassing. Clearly mark designated walking areas and block off the areas you want to maintain as restricted. You can manage the traffic flow of attendees in and out of your event safely by letting them know how to navigate the event.

5. Parking Lot Patrol

Your onsite security guard can offer parking lot guidance for your event. If you are expecting a large attendance for the event, having a professional onsite event security guard service in place will ensure order and safety.

6. Have an Emergency Plan in Place

Be prepared for anything. Remember Murphy’s Law “Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.” Have an emergency plan in place that will handle the worst possible scenario so that your event is ready for anything.
