In the past, TV shows, movies and books have painted a mental image of a private investigator as someone who works in a dimly lit, cluttered office, in a less than affluent part of town. Several fictional detectives have contributed to this image and one of the most well-known is Sherlock Holmes. But, just how much private investigator lore is really true? Separating fact from fiction involves defining precisely what private investigator is. Private investigators are people who get paid to gather facts. Unlike police detectives or crime scene investigators, they typically work for private citizens or businesses rather than for government. They may help solve crimes even though they are not law enforcement. The private investigators job is to collect information, not to arrest and prosecute criminals.
In the news, the word “surveillance” has a negative connotation due to accusations of its misuse by our government and big business. But, for the private investigator, surveillance performed legally is part of a necessary and important skill set. Trained private investigators perform discreet surveillance and provide the court evidence of wrong doing, the kind of proof that will stand up in court. Surveillance is the monitoring or observation of behavior, activities and people for the purpose of influencing, managing, directing, or protecting them.
When a spouse is cheating, they’re either committing adultery or infidelity. The difference is whether you’re cheating in a marriage (adultery) or in a committed monogamous relationship (infidelity). Private investigators spend a great deal of time working on adultery and infidelity cases. Washington State is a no fault state. When adultery is committed one spouse may feel it is grounds for divorce, but the court’s decision focuses on whether one party feels the marriage is irreconcilable, not the cause. Two issues a Washington State divorce court will consider are alimony and child custody.
In a courtroom, child custody cases involve more than you and your attorney, child custody cases involve the welfare of your children. A majority of divorces in Washington State involve child custody and these cases may take a long time to resolve because there is so much at stake regarding your child’s welfare. Patience is absolutely essential when building a case. Judges have also become numb to allegations that are unsupported by inadmissible documentation. Any success you have in the courtroom directly hinges on the proof or evidence you produce. Child custody investigators have the experience necessary to provide you and your attorney with proof that’s admissible in court.
