Video and photographic evidence obtained
Surveillance is quite often the only way to obtain irrefutable evidence or intelligence to enable you to make informed decisions. The evidence might be in relation to infidelity, workplace theft, toxic waste dumping, and harassment such as neighbors poisoning trees or pets and damaging your home or vehicle. It could also provide evidence that a law under Local, Federal or State Government Statutes is being broken or provide you with strategic intelligence to arm you with a competitive edge. A.S.Investigations utilises surveillance experts, skilled in the use of state of the art techniques and equipment to obtain the evidence.
Part of ensuring expertise is given its best possible chance at success is the provision of suitable equipment to allow for the best opportunity of gaining photographic/video evidence and the least chance of being detected.
Where surveillance is required in the workplace there are new rules which came into place along with the implementation of the Workplace Video Surveillance Act. This piece of NSW legislation places restrictions upon covert surveillance and makes it mandatory for an employer to instruct a licensed Security individual to apply for an authority for the installation. A.S.Investigations takes care of all the paperwork and obtains a lawful authority to protect you and the evidence we obtain.
SURVEILLANCE OPERATIVE TRAINING AND SELECTION OF SKILLED RESOURCES:
Many investigation companies have an ‘investigator selection process’ that leaves much to be desired. The fact that an individual holds the appropriate Private Inquiry Agents License does not in itself ensure that this individual is a capable and skilled investigator.
Surveillance investigators are often placed in dangerous or remote locations and they require adequate resources to enable them to remain in place often under extreme weather conditions. These two photos demonstrate how power packs and camouflage nets are required to sustain remote and lengthy operations.
At A.S.Investigations we have in place ongoing training implemented through our Manager who comes from a strong Intelligence and surveillance background with hands on experience in the gathering of intelligence. He is qualified and assessed within the Government. This training is unique to A.S.Investigations and ensures that the operatives we select are of the highest calibre.
The days of the old Divorce Act and the Matrimonial Causes Act have long gone. However with the abandonment of these two Acts, the need for investigative services in the cheating partner field has increased and not decreased. Under the old Acts it was necessary for a spouse seeking divorce to prove they had a cheating partner, abuse, etc, on the part of the other. These cheating partner investigations sometimes brought about a perception that the investigation industry was sleazy. Now with greater equality in divorce/Family Law Court matters, the need for evidence to be gathered and presented in an admissible form in all of the above areas is vital to the preparation and winning your cheating partner case.
Evidence of a cheating partner was required under those old Acts and our industry was the only body able to provide evidence of a cheating partner. Happily, it is no longer a requirement under the Family Law Act to prove that you have a cheating partner to gain a divorce, however many other issues become important to those embroiled in cheating partner matters. It could be that peace of mind is needed in relation to whether you have a cheating partner or otherwise, proof of guilt for family and religious reasons or just so you can make informed decisions to and demonstrate proof of a cheating partner to these other persons to enable you to move on in your personal and religious life.
Custody of children is also an issue and it may be that evidence can be obtained to convince the court that you can better care for the children than your cheating partner. The well-being and safety of the children whilst in the care of the custodial or non custodial parent is a major concern. We may be able to obtain evidence that your children are not being well cared for by that former cheating partner, nor provided with adequate supervision or harmonious surroundings. It could be that certain court orders affecting that access to the children are being breached by your former cheating partner. The future of the children is paramount.
Property settlements and child maintenance are the next areas that require investigation. It could be that a former cheating partner has hidden assets or in fact is understating income. Breaches of court orders are common with cheating partners and the only way to prove these breaches is through a well planned and executed cheating partner investigation.
Planning a strategy in a cheating partner investigation is the single most important aspect of one of these investigations and something we do before undertaking any cheating partner investigation. We first understand your particular circumstances and desired outcomes and then with your assistance set about gathering early intelligence about your cheating partner and formulating a strategy plan that has the best chance of success through targeting key elements of your cheating partners life and the best possible time and place to execute that plan. Perfect Planning Prevents Poor Performance.
Costs in cheating partner investigations are quite often much less than our clients expect. In fact it costs less per hour to have a cheating partner investigation undertaken than it does to have your carpets cleaned or your car repaired. We are happy to prepare a strategy and budget for you to consider at no charge.

- BACKGROUND CHECKS
- BACKGROUND SEARCHES
- BACKGROUND VERIFICATION
- CRIMINAL BACKGRFOUND CHECKS
- A NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL CAPABILITY
One of the most common services Private Investigators provide is that of background checks, background searches and background verification. Whilst these three may all sound the same, they are in fact different. Some of the services below may not be available nor lawful in some countries.
Background checks is a term generally used to describe a service that a person wants carried out specifically targeted at what an individual has alleged or told another person that this person does not necessarily believe. It could be that the person has alleged that they are not married or not in a relationship, represent a particular organisation, have a certain profession, are in possession of certain qualifications or perhaps have received certain accolades for their services/actions.
Almost all people who want a background check undertaken are proven correct about their suspicions. Your intuitiveness, gut feeling, suspicions are generally well founded – you just don’t have the proof.
These background checks usually involve the gathering of information from third parties, persons who will know the truth and not necessarily being able to be supported by physical documentation. Some of this background searching work is undertaken via surveillance to confirm the truthfulness of a person allegations.
A.S.Investigations will always endeavor to find a way to gather background check information lawfully and we pride ourselves in getting the information our clients need for there individual circumstances.
These differ from background checks in that private investigators generally obtain documentary proof to either support or counter the allegations of the persons background. These background searches might relate to company searches, land titles searches, bankruptcy searches, criminal records searches, credit searches, financial searches, address searches, tenancy searches, marriage searches, mobile phone number searches, unlisted phone number searches and media searches. There are many more back ground search requirements that we often undertake in this regard.
These background searches rely very much upon the skill of the private investigator/ private investigators and the private investigator/ private investigators having access to many background search databases. A.S.Investigations has over the past 21 years become familiar with all of the best search engines and subscribes to dozens of these in the pursuit of lawfully gathering the information that our clients seek to give them peace of mind. We also have an international background searching capacity through our overseas partners.
Background verification can take on other dimensions and is generally undertaken via surveillance of the person when all other attempts to verify these circumstances through background searches and background checks have failed to find evidence in other ways. Surveillance is a powerful tool and you never really know a person until you follow them.
Often surveillance turns up evidence that not only refutes what the surveillance target has told our client but also what the client does not expect as an added bonus.
It could be that a background verification target person is alleging that they work in a certain profession and that background searches have failed to adduce any evidence of this. It might be that the background verification target alleges they are single, married, wealthy, reside or work in a certain place, have a certain illness, are in receipt of certain treatment for that illness or incapacity, are overseas but are not etc. All of these circumstances have been previously investigated by A.S.Investigations and verified or refuted.
Criminal background checks
In Australia it is only possible to obtain the Australian criminal history of an individual if you have the signed consent of that individual and documentation of proof of identity of that person certified by a Justice Of The Peace. Otherwise it is not possible no matter what you may have been told. If the criminal history has been published then provided that published history is on the net or perhaps at a newspaper archive then you may gain access. This is rarely available and generally only very serious crimes are published.
Beware of websites offering to get this information as most are not located in Australia.
We can however gain the criminal history of an individual in many other countries via our world membership to Investigation Representative Industry bodies and colleagues that we have used and trusted over the years.
