Infidelity Insights

Affairs at work

Friday June 18th 2004

Yes this is a very common place for infidelity to germinate. So much so that we established an entire page of our website to the issue. The true problem for our clients facing this issue to deal with is this, is the inappropriate behavior actually occuring inside the work place or not. When people are actually engaging in intercourse inside the office or business, it makes our job significantly more difficult, if not impossible. We recommend that you have the answer to this questions before you hire a private investigator.

Public view

Friday June 18th 2004

We had a Chicago area client who expressed his displeasure with us when our private investigators followed his spouse to a private home where a very large outdoor party was taking place. There were literally 300 - 350 people outside and it would have been possible for us to go into the back yard and walk around filming the target. The problem we have is that this is a private residence and do not have permission to enter the property. Not only is this illegal, the film that we would have shot would be worthless in his divorce. We can only operate in public places or in private places where we have permission. Remember, we are private investigators, not paparazzi.

Why dont we call the cleint and report everything as it happens

Thursday June 17th 2004

The main reason is safety. We do not want to put you, the subject or ourselves in a heated, emotional situtation where you may want to take action and do something dangerous. Play by play reporting does not change what your loved one is doing, nor does it change the reality that you must face. It can be distracting to the private investigator and will only make your pain more intense at that moment. We again have a company policy against that type of interaction with the client. Every year some private investigator somewhere does this and the client shows up to confront the spouse or attack the other person and someone ends up injured or dead. Not a good idea.

Licensed and bonded

Thursday June 17th 2004

We have people who ask about our being "bonded" everyday and it merits a note here. In almost every state where a private investigator requires a license, issuance of a license requires that a bond be posted with the state. It is not an option, it is a necessity. So please don't make the mistake of thinking that a private investigator who is bonded is anything special or that the bond affords you any additional protection or assurance of quality.
