What happens in a civil investigation?
A civil investigation usually begins with an analysis. A private investigator will meet with the person launching the investigation to discuss the investigation budget, the needs of the investigation, and how the case should proceed. Then, the investigator will approach the case, using a variety of investigative techniques to get answers and evidence, as needed. Depending on the investigation, investigators may use surveillance, background checks, medical or forensic investigations, witness examination, and other methods to solve the case. The investigator will then meet with the client again to discuss findings. If needed, an investigator can create an official report or even act as an expert witness in a civil trial.
