Investigative Services offered



You know the truth by the way it feels

The feeling of being betrayed by an unfaithful partner is heartbreaking. If you suspect your significant other is cheating or your spouse is committing adultery getting proof can not only help ease your mind, but also possibly positively impact your financial future. We can help you get the answers you need.  

Child Custody


Don't let them pay the price

Being forced to leave your innocent young family members in the hands of an unfit parent, or in the company of an individual you know little about, can be heart wrenching and possibly put them in danger. Grandparents have rights too. Let us help you help your children.

Child Support


Greed has no boundaries

Having your children's family life torn apart is difficult enough; dealing with a dishonest, irresponsible parent is a frustrating battle. If you believe you are a victim of child support payment fraud, whether by over paying or not getting paid what you deserve, we can help you get the proof you need. 

Cohabitation Violation


Verifying can be redeeming

Having a legal Cohabitation Agreement violated by your previous spouse could be costing you money, while their new significant other might be benefiting financially. If you suspect a violation of your agreement we can help get you the proof you need to possibly have your alimony or maintenance payments reduced or eliminated.

Elder Abuse and Neglect


Care for those who cared for you

Having to leave your elderly loved ones in the care of strangers is a difficult choice. To potentially be exposing them to abuse, theft, or neglect is a terrible feeling to have to live with. If you suspect that a loved one is being victimized, or you would just like to be confident about their care we are here to help.

Insurance Fraud


The lazy man's wage

 The cost of insurance fraud is estimated to be more than $40 billion per year. This cost is recouped by higher premiums absorbed by companies like yours. If your company is suspicious of Worker's Compensation insurance fraud put us to work for you and send a bold message to your employees. We can help get you the proof you need.

Locates and Missing Persons


 Don't give up

Locating and helping to reunite lost family members is one of the most rewarding areas of our job. We work tirelessly to reconnect persons separated by adoption, runaways, biological parents or possible siblings.

Background checks


Never assume

In this day and age it is foolish to assume ANY individual is actually who they present themselves to be. We see the secrets people keep everyday. Whether you are about to do business with, hire, lease property to, or just interact socially with someone; a comprehensive background check conducted through our up to date data gathering software is the smartest choice you can make to keep yourself, your business, your family, and your assets protected.

Service of Process


 You've been served

We offer legal document service for Attorneys, Collection Agencies, and individuals. By doing our own skip trace homework on the recipient prior to attempting the serve, we have a higher rate of delivery success. Unlike Law Enforcement process services, who are extremely busy and can only make a certain number of attempts as time permits; we strategically plan our attempts to be able to reach the individual in a timely manner.

With so many opportunities for dishonesty out there today Private Investigating has become a necessary and in demand service. Private Investigating is not some mysterious person in a trench coat, it is a professional service utilized by individuals from all different backgrounds, situations, and industries. Private Investigators are required to be licensed by a State Private Protective Services Board; and have the training and access to tools unavailable to the  public. Private Investigators are the essential link between you and the truth.

How do I start the process?

 However, starting the process of a Private Investigation is as easy as a phone call. We actively and compassionately listen to your situation and gather all the necessary information.

Will hiring a Private Investigator help my court case?

Understanding the court system is complicated enough, and sometimes you only get one chance. The better prepared you are the better your odds are of getting favorable results.
