Investigative Therapy

There are a myriad of reasons that people or firms hire private investigators. Sometimes they're looking for an old boyfriend, or a deadbeat dad, a debtor, a witness, or an heir. The reasons for these searches are all obvious.

Or, they could be contemplating a divorce and want to gather evidence to support them in divorce court, especially if alimony or child custody is involved.

And companies want to hire the best people, and also reduce their liability, so they have a background investigation performed on prospective hirees.

Then, some people order investigations as a sort of therapy. They either want to know something out of curiosity, or need reassurance. A person might think that their home or office is bugged. After a while it can nag them so much that they hire Sherlock Investigations to perform an electronic sweep just to be sure that they have absolute electronic privacy. I call this "investigative therapy." It can take many forms.

Investigative therapy can involve a lot of different kinds of cases, but the bottom line is that some people just need the reassurance that certain things are so. It's good to know, and that's what private investigators try to do, to discover the facts of a situation and relate them to the client.

So, if you need an investigation performed for simple theraputic reasons, give us a call. We're here to help you.
