Private Investigators in Australia: Cost, Process, Legal process

At Truth Investigations, our team of private investigators in Australia always use ethical and legal means to gather evidence. There are many reasons for hiring a Private Investigator. Although one of the most popular rationales is to catch a cheating spouse, some people use our services to identify insurance fraud and employee fraud. You may also want to turn to us if you’re considering taking a new relationship to a more serious level.

Before hiring any private investigator in Australia, it’s worth learning more about what we can and cannot do. From our processes to our pricing plans, we’re happy to discuss all your queries openly and honestly right here.

What can a Private Investigator in Australia do?

Private investigators and private detectives are the same – we carry out investigations on behalf of private individuals, lawyers and corporations. Licenced private investigators in Australia are bound by state and national laws. This means we need to use our unique skills and tools to unearth information about the individual or company you want to investigate. In some cases, this means using photographic evidence to catch a person in the act. Such evidence is excellent for revealing infidelity or discovering that an employee is lying about an illness.

Using public records and our unique ability to encourage others to reveal more about themselves, we often identify when someone is telling lies. By maintaining an ethical approach to our daily practice, we ensure the evidence we reveal is admissible in court. This can act to your advantage when resolving family law matters or employment disputes.

How do your services work?

When you are ready to hire a private investigator, get in touch with us and we’ll schedule an initial meeting to discuss your case by phone. During this meeting, we’ll take the time to understand what your suspicions are and we’ll use the information you give to us as a platform for starting our work. We’ll then use one of our private investigators in your area to gather evidence that either confirms or corrects your suspicions.

What influences the cost of your private investigation services?

At Truth Private Investigators, we work hard to ensure our quotes are always transparent. The overall cost of your case will depend on the amount of work that’s involved and the equipment we need to use. Thanks to our experience in performing investigations, we’re able to provide accurate quotes once we’ve discussed the details of your case.

Do you have questions for us?

As private investigators in Australia, we know our clients often feel as though our business is shrouded in secrecy! At the same time, we want to ensure you feel confident in using our services. If you have any questions for us, please get in touch and we’ll provide you with a full and detailed answer below.

I am going through a rough separation with my ex husband. He pays no child support and claims he doesn’t work. He also appears to have breached court orders regarding providing the address of his residency for the purpose of shared custody arrangements of our children. i would like to know if a PI would be capable in determining his actual address and employment status as it appears he is getting away with fraud and breaking the courts orders. how much would it cost for a PI to investigate this?

Hi Paula, thank you for contacting Truth Investigations. We would be pleased to assist with your case, should you decide to go ahead.

Firstly, we would need to locate his home address.

Our fee for a desktop investigation to locate a person is $880.00 including gst.

We charge half upfront, and the balance only on a result being provided.

Once the address is located – surveillance can commence.

Surveillance is when we follow him from home to get evidence that he lives at the located address and obtain evidence of his employment (if he is working).

The budget would start from $600 per period, and we would normally suggest 3-8 periods for a case of this type.

If you would like to talk further, please contact our office by phone on 1300 365 883 or send an email to info@truthinvestigations.com.au.

Truth PI

When conducting any business, it is always good to shop around and get a feel for who you are dealing with. At Truth Investigations we pride ourselves on developing a close and personal relationship with all of our clients. Generally, when the need to hire a Private Investigator arises, there is a lot of emotion and stress involved. We like to alleviate that stress by providing a simple, concise service to our clients. We are empathetic, resourceful, always contactable and very discreet. Speak to one of our staff today by calling 1300 365 883 or emailing us – info@truthinvestigations.com.au

Discretion is key for me, I don’t want my partner finding out. How can you guarantee that he won’t find out?

Truth PI

Hi Cheryl – We understand the importance of discretion and go to great lengths to keep your information confidential before, during and after the investigation.

We setup a secure and encrypted channel of communication with clients to safeguard our conversations from their partner and ensure there is no trace on the phone bill.

We always ask during the initial phone conversation for a secure and private email address to send information to without it landing up on a shared email account or device.

Our office is kept up-to-date with the latest in security software and firewalls to ensure that all documents are stored safely and securely.

If you have any further hesitation about the discretion of your information, we ask that you bring this up during a phone consultation.

What kind of investigations do you do?

We conduct various types of investigations for a broad range of clients Australia wide. We specialise in surveillance, background checks, data recovery and locating people that do not want to be found. Please contact our office today for a free consultation by phone so we can help you with your current situation.

How do you guarantee your work?

Truth PI

Hi Anna,

With many cases there is no guarantee. We make this very clear from the beginning and outline exactly what outcome can be expected from the services we offer. For example: When conducting surveillance, you can’t make the Subject of the investigation change their daily routine or tell them to leave the house to do what you need them to do in order to obtain a result.

The purpose of surveillance is to observe and obtain evidence of a Subject in accordance with a client’s instructions.

We always ensure that meticulous planning and research goes into every surveillance operation. We put ourselves in the best location and at the most suited time-frame to obtain a favourable result.

As much as each case can be similar, no two cases are the same and it is important to discuss your situation with one of our staff in detail before proceeding.

Samantha

I have an upcoming court case. Is your work admissible in a court of law?
