HOW DOES A COHABITATION INVESTIGATION WORK?
It starts by having a free consultation with us and once we have received instructions to do so, we will carry out static surveillance on the property where we will capture footage of every person entering and exiting the property.
All footage obtained is admissible in court and is time-date-stamped. A report is sent to you detailing the results of the investigation with all images taken.
Witness statements can also be provided by the investigators who completed the surveillance.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Proving cohabitation to the courts requires more than a few days of footage obtained. It is best to spread out the surveillance over the course of a few weeks, with a minimum of 10 days, to prove regular visitations to the property.
Each time a surveillance operation has been completed you will be informed of the results so you will be up to date with how the investigation is progressing.
You also have the option to extend the investigation.
WHAT AREAS DO YOU COVER? CAN I HIRE AN INVESTIGATOR NEAR ME?
We have cohabitation investigators based all over the country who can be deployed at short notice.
HOW MUCH DOES COHABITATION INVESTIGATION SERVICE COST?
We charge between £40ph and £70ph per operative for static surveillance. Typically, only one operative is required for cohabitation investigations, however, an extra operative may be required to secure another one of the property’s entrance/exit points. We also provide discounted costs for cohabitation investigations that include static surveillance, a report, and imagery based on the length of the investigation.
