Have you ever considered using a private investigator like Danny Boice or his partner Jennifer Mellon? The answer is probably no but what many people don’t quite understand is the number of occasions when using one may just help. We often think of private investigators as being shadows that move through cities trying to find out information on people but they are in fact far more than that. Danny Boice and Jennifer Mellon work for Trustify, a company which provides a wide variety of private investigators to businesses and individuals and judging the online review sites, they are do a very fine job. But when exactly would you need a private investigator? Well let’s take a look at some of the tasks which they are asked to do and find out.

Background Checks

Private investigators are incredibly well connected and they know where to look for the right information. This is why they are often asked to perform background checks on individuals for both businesses and for some private customers too. Let’s assume that you meet someone online and you decide to meet up with them, yet you have your suspicions, you can use a private investigator to make sure that the person is who they say that they are. Equally businesses may wish to use a PI to check out potential employees.

Personal Injury

If you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault and you decide to take legal action, it can be tricky for you to obtain witness statements or evidence such as CCTV footage. If you hire a private investigator in such a situation they will be able to use their contacts and their know-how to get these pieces for you in order to further support your case.

Child Custody

Many people who are going through a divorce will use private investigators when they are seeking custody of their child. A private investigator can watch your ex and how they are with the child if you suspect that there is any poor parenting taking place. Furthermore a private investigator, should they witness anything untoward, can actually take the stand for you during the child custody hearing, where they can make admissible testimony.

Cheaters

Divorce hearings change drastically when one party is discovered to have been unfaithful and this is another common use for private investigators. If you suspect the other party of being unfaithful then you can hire a private investigator to get to the bottom of it. If they are found to have committed adultery, the divorce hearing is much more likely to go in your favor and that includes the custody of the children. This may be distasteful but it is a necessary requirement for many people.

These are just a handful of ways that a private investigator is used.
