Otherwise known as a private detective or more informally as a “(paid) stalker”, a private investigator (PI) sets out to aid clients in uncovering the truth about various issues ranging from commercial fraud to adultery. A common misconception is that PIs are out to prove clients’ suspicions right to destroy relationships. However, PIs exist because of the growing demand for such services – in fact, they aim to diminish your unhappiness and bring you good news when possible.
On top of that, PIs play an important role in assisting law enforcement organisations as they may be licensed with more flexibility and freedom to carry out the necessary activities needed to fully disclose the truth. When it comes to hiring a PI and going through the whole process, there are a few steps that you might want to take note of.

What are the steps involved in a private investigation?
Schedule a consultation with your desired PI
A non-obligatory discussion would allow the PI to have a clearer idea of the client’s situation and concerns. Thereafter, the PI can then better advise the client on the most feasible approach towards getting the information that he/she needs.
Planning of the surveillance
This is when the PI gets to know more about the subject from the client, such as his/her daily schedule, routines and habits. Attention will also be paid to the subject’s free time, off days, special occasions and public holidays.
Regular updates on findings
During the surveillance process, regular updates will be provided to the client pertaining to any recent findings as well as the status of the investigation. An evaluation of the timings will also be done to decide if the current timings used are fruitful to the investigation and if not, alternative timings will be tried in upcoming surveillances instead so as to be able to catch the action in time to gather timely evidence.
Gathering of evidence
Video recording with date and time stamps will be shown to the client. When necessary, any photos can be obtained directly from the videos that have been taken.
The above steps are the usual procedures for PIs to get hold of sufficient relevant evidence to aid the investigation. This process helps in producing the best results in the shortest time possible, which in turn allows you to save costs. Moreover, do note that costs are mostly recoverable in court proceedings.
