Updated: May 3
Private investigators serves an important role. They often handle cases that are not taken care of by other professionals but that serve an important function in the justice or corporate system. All Private Investigators (PIs) in Singapore has to have a valid license with the Singapore Police Force (SPF). Only a company with a valid Private Investigation Agency License is able to provide these services, any individual Private Investigator is not allowed to solicit any businesses on their own.
Here are some of the common cases that private investigators handle:
Many private investigators offer background checks with their list of services. Background checks examine a person’s history, and may reveal critical information, such as a person’s criminal conviction, poor credit history, or misrepresentation regarding education or work history. A background check may be conducted for employment purposes or for housing purposes (e.g. Rental). Background checks may also be conducted when a person gets romantically involved with another person and wants to check if he or she embarrassing secrets. More robust background checks may be conducted to help provide security clearance to an individual.
A primary reason why someone may hire a private investigator is to conduct surveillance on a person. A person may require surveillance if he or she believes another person is trying to harm him or her, such as checking for a stalker or an abusive ex-partner. Surveillance may also be ordered in civil investigations, such as when an insurance company is attempting to acquire evidence about a person who alleges a serious injury. Cases may involve workers’ compensation, personal injury, corporate fraud, infidelity suspicions and others.
Family Law Matters
Another common reason to hire a private investigator is for a family law matter. Private investigators may be hired in order to gather evidence to use in a civil trial, such as a divorce or child custody. They may also be hired to help find a missing person or relocate adopted family members. Private investigators are often used in the divorce context for purposes such as locating hidden assets in a divorce or finding assets if a parent owes child support or spousal support. If a person is receiving alimony, the one that is providing the support may hire a private investigator to see if the spouse is living with a new romantic partner, as this would be evidence to terminate spousal support.
Private investigators may be contacted to investigate suspicions of a cheating spouse. Infidelity investigations are often requested because a person does not know whether a spouse is cheating or not and wants a Licensed Private Investigator to conduct surveillance and an investigation to determine if the person’s partner is being unfaithful. Often, a person must witness infidelity with his or her own eyes to believe that a partner is unfaithful.
Private investigators must often investigate a variety of cases. This form of investigation is specifically for the wrongly accused, loss and confused individuals possibly facing a law suit. These investigators may be able to find information that would otherwise go unknown.
Other cases may involve a close scrutiny of business practices or looking into domestic helpers for abuse or theft. Corporate investigations may look into the legitimacy of a business partner, the loss of information and how it occurred or what people are saying about an owner behind his or her back.
