What are Domestic Investigations?

Have you noticed a change in your spouse’s behavior? Do you suspect that your spouse might be abusing your child? Is your ex stalking you? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you came to the right place. Here at Legal Eye, we specialize in Domestic Investigations.

What are Domestic Investigations? "Domestic investigations" is a general term describing investigations that revolve around individuals and their legal problems. Some of these problems could include fraud, theft, abuse that occurs in a person’s own home, child custody battles and infidelity.

Domestic Investigations are about protecting your home and your family. If you are concerned about the safety of your possessions or loved ones for any reason, whether it’s an abusive family member or someone who has stolen from you, a domestic investigator can help provide you with evidence of any wrongdoings and prevent any further crimes.

Below are some reasons you may need a Domestic Investigator:

  • Cheating Spouse

  • A stalker

  • Extortion, Threats, and Blackmail

  • Spousal Deceit/Divorce

  • Missing Person(s)

  • Child Abuse

  • Spousal Abuse

  • Restraining Order Violations

  • Bigamy

  • Theft

In the case of a domestic issue, it’s best to hire a private investigator to conduct the investigation. Here’s why:

  • A private investigator will obtain all evidence legally so that it can later be used in court proceedings.

  • When sensitive information is involved, a Maryland licensed private investigator has access to resources that aren’t available to the public.

  • Private investigators have been trained and have an abundance of investigative experience.

  • Private Investigators vary greatly depending on the case. An investigator will be familiar with a variety of methods and will know which to use in a given situation. At Legal Eye, we have a specialized team for Domestic Investigations.

  • A private investigator will handle the information they discover in a professional and confidential manner.

Domestic investigations are one of the most common reasons private investigators are hired, and they can give you the results you need to get real peace of mind.

According to statistics, private investigators spend the majority of their time working on domestic investigations. Despite this fact, investigators report that clients coming to them for help with domestic matters often are reluctant or are embarrassed to share personal problems. The truth is that there is no reason to be shy about seeking out a domestic investigator. Not only are many investigators very experienced in this type of case, but the results from domestic investigations can dramatically improve your life. Consider the types of investigations that can help you.

Infidelity and Divorce

Divorce investigations and infidelity investigations can help you determine whether your spouse or partner is unfaithful. With more than 85% of women, and 80% of men correct in their suspicions about their partner's unfaithfulness, the truth is that if you have a sneaking suspicion, you may be right, and an investigator can tell you for sure. Rest assured those private investigators are very discreet about trailing unfaithful spouses. They can even provide you with visual or audio evidence if that is what you need to put your mind at ease. Private investigators deal with hundreds of these cases each year and can help you find out what you need to know.

Child Custody Investigations

Child custody and child support investigations help to keep your child safe and well-cared for. Investigators can run asset searches and missing person searches in order to obtain the child support you have been awarded by a court. With the Department of Health and Human Services reporting that more than 46% of non-custodial mothers and more than 26% of non-custodial fathers totally default on support, these services are very common across the country today. Child custody investigations also can help ensure that the non-custodial parent does not neglect or abuse the child while they are in their care. This is critical when you consider that since between 1976 and 1997, 11,000 children were murdered and thousands more were injured by parents or caregivers, according to the Present Federal Interagency Forum on Child and Family Statistics.

Background Checks and Criminal Investigations

Background and criminal investigations allow you to research those you trust in your home. According to statistics, 14% of child abuse cases involve a babysitter, nanny or another caregiver. With up to 10% of the American population having a criminal background, running criminal and background checks on anyone you trust inside your home just makes sense. Only an investigator can run these sorts of checks thoroughly, accurately, and with every concern for discretion.

Missing Persons Investigations

Missing person investigations can help you find deadbeat parents, children, and other members of your family who have disappeared. Over 2300 Americans are reported missing each day under various circumstances so that private investigators hear about many types of cases.

Drug Abuse

Drug screening can help determine whether anyone in your family is abusing drugs. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 3.8% of minors aged 12 to 13 reported uses of illegal drugs, and that percentage grows with age. An investigator can help run a thorough and discreet investigation that gets you answers about what is happening under your own roof.

No matter what type of domestic investigation you need, hire the best investigator you can and work closely with them for the best possible outcome. You can find a local investigator who can help you right now at
