Determine Truth:

When there are suspicions that a partner may be hiding something significant Research Associates offer confidential support and assistance by initially understanding the often subtle presenting evidence, which typically indicates the best lines of investigation to follow. We are then able to provide discreet factual information on a partner’s activities, allowing the truth to be documented in a clear, focused report.

It is typical for clients to have noted significant changes, in both attitude and behaviour and for explanations to be inadequate. Logically, this will eventually lead to suspicions, which need to be addressed; either for the relationship to continue or find alternate resolution.

Research Associates’ private investigators have many years experience in legally obtaining personal information in a professional, covert and discreet manner. An investigation will reveal facts about an individual’s background (both past and present), thereby exposing the truth relating to their integrity. We substantiate or validate information we gain before reporting to clients, so ensuring accuracy and precision.

Research Associates’ matrimonial/partner investigations provide documented proof of findings, helping to validate or disprove concerns and allowing informed decisions to be made. We use specialist intelligence teams to procure information discreetly and effectively, ensuring that the focus of our enquiry remains unaware of our actions.

How We Report

All Research Associates’ reports are focused, detailed and professional. As well as reporting to you in person (typically by telephone), our report documents the presenting situation and clearly demonstrates we have undertaken an ‘impact assessment’, which shows we have considered the legality of each case. Our report then goes on to document the summarised results of our investigation and where applicable, our ‘Observation Log’ will objectively demonstrate the following: Date; time; place and factually what is observed. This section of the report will be supported by date and time stamped video evidence, which is gathered covertly, where doing so does not compromise surveillance.

Before deciding to instruct, our approachable matrimonial investigators/detectives answer all questions with expert understanding based on decades of experience. We aim to present objective professional advice and options, all in confidence and obligation-free.

Our reports are designed to allow the reader to clearly understand both the presenting situation, along with the resulting evidence; whether the reader be a Court in the UK or any other jurisdiction, a family member or any other third party.
