Assured is a full
service agency that specializes in domestic related cases.
While most firms tend to spend 95% of their time working
insurance cases, Assured spends approximately 95% of it's time
working domestic cases.
Assured only uses fully licensed investigators to work on your
Assured has the resources through our world wide network to
work your case anywhere in the world at no additional cost to
you! (Some international cases may cost more).
We keep in close contact with our clients offering them
advice based on our past experience of investigating hundreds
of domestic cases. We utilize state of the art equipment and
experienced investigators to minimize the cost of your
You will receive a detailed professional report outlining
everything that was done on your case. You will also get a
detailed bill that will outline all the cost associated with
Once you have decided to
retain Assured for your investigative services, you will need to
sign a retainer fee agreement, complete a client information
sheet and pay your retainer by credit card or by mailing a
overview check, cashier's check or money in the amount of your
retainer. Once all the paperwork has been completed and we
have received the retainer we can help you decide when the
best possible time will be to conduct your surveillance.
Assured has a world
wide network of licensed private investigators making it
possible to work your case anywhere in the world. We only deal
with fully licensed investigators that specialize in domestic
Most clients want pictures
or video of the affair. While it is nice to have pictures or
video, it certainly is not necessary to prove your case. Most
Judges want a licensed investigator on the stand testifying.
It is VERY rare that video is shown in court. Most attorneys
will tell you that video is not as important as testimony.
Don't be fooled by firms who guarantee pictures or video. It
is very difficult to obtain and sometimes can jeopardize your
case if you are seen video taping. We always make every effort
possible to obtain video!
Unfortunately NO firm
can guarantee results. It is impossible to predict what any
investigation may reveal. We certainly can give you some idea
of the results that may be produced from your investigation
based on our past experiences, but there is no way to
guarantee results! We never make promises we can't keep! We report the facts in each case as they occur.
Unfortunately many people try to do their own
investigations. If you try to do the investigation yourself,
you stand a very good chance of botching it. Once the PERSON
knows he/she is under investigation, you can usually give it
up. In some states you could also be arrested for stalking! It
is better to invest the money with a reputable private
investigator that specializes in domestic cases and have it
done right the first time. In most cases judges will dismiss
any evidence that is provided by you, a friend or someone
directly related to you. The judge will hold a lot more weight
to evidence that is gathered by an experienced licensed
There are times when you don't need the
services of a private investigator. However if you suspect
your partner is cheating you need evidence to prove it.
Attorneys are not investigators and do not gather evidence.
They simple present the evidence that you collect in court.
When one party of a civil domestic suit has evidence collected
by a unbiased licensed private investigator it removes the "he
said" "she said" out of the court room. This generally will
make an out of court settlement more likely and save you a
considerable amount of time and money. We would never conduct
an investigation that we know would not be beneficial to your
case. If you need help in determining if our services will
benefit you, please contact
It is legal to tape
conversations in some states as long as one party to the
conversation has knowledge. For Example: In Georgia you
can tape your conversation with another person without their
knowledge. In all states it is illegal to tap a phone or
intercept a conversation between two other people when you are
not a party to that conversation. If you want to know if it is
legal to tape a conversation in your state please contact
Most states have
reciprocal agreements allowing private investigators to follow
individuals in another state as long as the case originated in
the investigator's home state. When your spouse/partner leaves
the state to meet the person their cheating with, Assured will
utilize a worldwide network of licensed experienced
investigators to work your case no matter where your partner
Conducting moving surveillance on ANY vehicle
is very difficult. There are times when we may lose the person
that we are watching. At times it may be necessary to let the
person that we are watching go. Sometimes people who we are
conducting surveillance on are looking over their shoulder to
see if anyone is watching or following them. An experienced
investigator will never continue to follow someone who is
trying to determine if they are being followed. Remember you
can always come back, but not if you get burned!
There is no way to determine the exact
cost of any domestic investigation. There are too many
variables to consider when conducting a domestic
investigation. Our pledge to you is that we will work with you in setting up a plan of action and to work within a budget.
While many private investigation firms will not give you an
estimate, we specialize in these types of cases and work them
on a continual basis. Once you have answered a few questions
over the phone during our free consultation we will be able to
give you an estimate of the total cost of your
We only use fully licensed
investigators to work your case. Experienced investigators are
more likely to gather the evidence you need in a shorter
period of time.
- We maintain contact with the clients during any
surveillance to ensure that a need remains for us to be
there. Sometimes there is no need to continue surveillance
when the person we are watching is obviously not doing
anything during this surveillance. Instead of burning up
your retainer we will recommend that you continue the
surveillance another day!
- We will make recommendations based on our experience if
it seems feasible to terminate the surveillance. The final
decision must be made by the client.
- We specialize in domestic cases. Most private
investigative firms specialize in insurance work. It is
usually easier and steadier work than domestic cases.
Adjusters unlike spouses/partners are not emotionally
involved with the cases. Therefore the investigator has less
to deal with. At Assured most of our cases are domestic. If you
have transmission problems on your car, would you take it to
someone who specialized in brakes? Don't make the mistake of
getting someone who is not experienced with working domestic
- We utilize technology vs. surveillance when feasible to
get evidence and answers before we ever begin surveillance
to reduce the number of billable hours. We utilize that
evidence gathered through specialized search and technology
to eliminate the need for lengthy unnecessary surveillance.
We invest thousands of dollars every year on equipment,
training and databases so that we can offer the best service
and product possible. When you shop around you will find that
we are not the cheapest. Unfortunately you only have one shot
at a domestic investigation. If someone "Cheaper" and maybe
less experienced works on your case and makes a mistake your
case is over. It is not likely that another qualified firm can
pick up your case and successfully gather the evidence you
need. Do you really want to go bargain shopping for this type
of service? When so much is at stake!
The bottom line is not how much you pay by the hour, but
how much you pay in the end. You get what you pay for!
members and/or friends can't conduct surveillance or
investigations in most states. It is illegal for anyone to
conduct surveillance or investigations in most states without
a private investigations license. There is also a chance that
they could be arrested for stalking in some states as well.
Most courts frown upon family members and friends conducting
surveillance or investigations. Would you let one of your
family members or friends repair your transmission if they
were not a mechanic? Then why let them try to be a private
Many times clients believe that they
already have enough to prove that their partner is cheating.
Unfortunately most of the time you may have enough to prove in
your mind that they are cheating, but not enough to prove it
in court. If you're not sure if you have enough evidence to
prove your spouse is committing adultery, please contact
us for a consultation.
clients are stay at home partners or have partners who control
the finances for the family. It is sometimes difficult to pay
retainer fees without the partner finding out. We suggest that
you borrow the money or a credit card from a family member or friend and once
the investigation is complete and you have the evidence you
need, then you repay the person who you borrowed from. Does it
really matter if your partner finds out after the
investigation is over? Not to mention that you don't have to
really reveal why you borrowed money from your friend or
We NEVER advise a client to confront
their partner with any evidence that may have. Never threaten
to hire a private investigator! We can still work your case in
most situations where you have confronted your partner,
however sometimes it may require that we use additional
resources and/or an additional investigator to work your case effectively.
