Mystery and controversy can be exciting and compelling in the pages of your favourite novel or up on the silver screen. We have all seen the movies and TV shows with the private investigator secretly tailing someone to collect evidence for their client. But, in real life, hidden truths can be damaging, costly, and even dangerous.
While the depictions can sometimes be a bit far-fetched, the notion of hiring a private investigator to conduct surveillance is possible.
Is it legal to conduct surveillance?
The brief answer is yes. Private investigators have the authority, as part of their professional licences, to conduct surveillance on behalf of their clients. Any evidence obtained legally by a private investigator can be used in court, a tribunal, or negotiations.
What is lawful surveillance?
Despite what you may see in the movies, our private investigators do not break laws to obtain photo or video documentation on your behalf. Our agents must comply with all laws whilst in the commission of evidence-gathering, including those about trespassing. Spousebusters consists of a licensed investigation team with years of experience conducting discreet and legal surveillance on behalf of our clients.
What is surveillance evidence?
Our private investigators keep detailed notes on their observations during a case. They also provide both still photos and video footage. Any surveillance evidence turned over to clients can become part of an annexure to an affidavit. What that means is you are indicating the surveillance findings into evidence in a pending court case. Fraud investigations, child custody suits, and divorces are among the kinds of court cases where surveillance evidence is commonly admitted.
