Rule #1 - If you intend to prove the affair, contact BlueShield before you inform your spouse that you're aware of what's going on. This prevents any change in behavior which would make it harder, hence more expensive, to prove.

Review your finances. Look for an increase in ATM withdrawals, unexplained checks, bank balances, credit card charges to unfamiliar places. Monitor vehicle mileage or overtime income from claims of working late.

Look in your spouses purse or wallet or glovebox. Look for phone numbers, addresses, receipts or birth control or condoms. Pay attention to changes in dress, grooming, a new cologne or perfume or physical fitness. Tune in to the telephone. Watch for whispered phone calls around the house, or those that end quickly, or if you answer and are immediately hung up on. Monitior the cell phone. Watch for frequently dialed numbers, particularly right after leaving and just before arriving home. If you can get to the phone, look at text messages and emails.

(DO NOT PLACE RECORDING/SPY APPS ON YOUR SPOUSES PHONE. This is considered wiretapping and is illegal, even if the account is in your name). The same goes for GPS tracking. A spouse can be charged with stalking unless the person driving the tracked vehicle is aware that a GPS tracker has been placed on their vehicle. In Virginia, a Private Investigator can currently utilize this method to aid in our investigation so long as the name of the Client appears on the title.

What does it cost to hire a Private Investigator?

BlueShield examines each client's needs and requirements on a case-by-case basis. Initial consultations are always free and one fact is certain: BlueShield clients are always informed of every service rendered and every dollar spent. We have different pricing options available and prefer to review these with our clients after we have an understanding of how to best help them. We're in business for the right reasons and that is to help you find the truth, not to get rich doing it.

If a company quotes you a price without talking to you in depth first, you're probably going to be A) disappointed with the results or B) surprised with an invoice after it's over.

How long will my case take to complete?

Promising a predetermined turnaround time or selected case completion date before an in-depth consultation would be irresponsible, and nearly impossible in many instances. Clients can rest assured that their cases will be handled efficiently and effectively.

In the case of a background investigation for instance, as simple as it sounds, the time can vary depending on the depth and scope of the background being requested.

How do I know when I need the services of a Private Investigator?

When you need an objective professional to gather and document facts to be used as evidence in a case, without bias, opinion, supposition or surmise, you need a Private Investigator. Hiring a Private Investigator is not unlike hiring a lawyer or other service professional.
