Alive And Well Investigations

At ASI our agents will personally travel to any location to determine whether the claimant on permanent disability is “alive and well” and that the claimant is receiving their benefits in a timely manner. Our investigators also report the overall living conditions and activities of the claimant. Due to family members sometimes fraudulently collecting the compensation benefits after the claimant has passed, these checks are recommended once or twice annually.

Video Surveillance Investigations

At ASI we understand that video surveillance is often the best way to determine a subject’s actual whereabouts and activities. It often involves time consuming tracking and observation, but provides undeniable documentation. The amount and extent of the surveillance is determined on a case by case basis depending on the type and difficulty of the case. When dealing with workers’ compensation cases, video evidence obtained by a credible independent investigative agency is a powerful tool. Courts have been very receptive to testimony provided by professional investigators and thorough reports. A small investment in a thorough investigation can save you countless dollars in the long run.

What Makes Video Surveillance Successful?

At Advance Solution Investigations, Inc. (ASI) our first objective is to gather as much background information on the subject as possible. Through discussions with the client, use of in-house database searches and public records searches, ASI agents will build a profile of the subject. To maximize surveillance efforts, pretext telephone calls are sometimes used to help determine the subject’s activities.

ASI Agents are professionally trained and experienced in surveillance investigations. We understand the importance of maintaining credibility throughout the investigation. Our agents will not trespass on the subject’s property, enter the residence under false pretenses, or use unethical tactics to obtain evidence.  In the end, ASI will provide the client with a detailed investigative report to include raw videotaped footage and still photo frames within the report, detailing the subject’s activity. At Advance Solution Investigation, Inc., our agents understand that how and when surveillance is requested it could help lead to positive results. One of the main advantages an agent has on his side is the “element of surprise”. In other words the claimant/subject has no idea what day or time they may be under surveillance.

If you need a surveillance investigation done in or around the South Florida area, contact us now!

Requesting surveillance on or near the day of a deposition or doctor’s appointment can show a contrast on videotape after an individual has been deposed; however, they could also have the case on their mind and could be on the lookout for investigators. We have found that we have a 99% video success rate on 2 and 3 day surveillance assignments. On the first day our agents will be used to determine the individual’s pattern or schedule. The second and/or third day is used to do surveillance when the individual is most likely to be active (or out in the open), or the opportunity to obtain video results is greatest. For example: if your claimant/subject has a 9-5 / 5 day a week indoor work schedule where there is a low rate of video opportunity (indoor video at work will be attempted), surveillance might be initiated on an evening (leaving work) and or a weekend. If you are in need of a Florida Surveillance Agent, please contact us now.

  • Reduced risk of theft, financial loss, sexual harassment, workplace violence & other workplace problems
  • Reduced risk of wrongful termination lawsuits

At ASI our searches are done by Licensed Private Investigators. The cheap online data bases do not use licensed investigators and sometimes their information is inaccurate, out-dated and misleading. We can assist you in protecting your company and yourself from hiring people with histories of criminal backgrounds, job hopping, terminations and other undesirable oddities that could cost your business time and money. We are due diligent in our searches with very competitive rates. Your requests can be made via e-mail or fax. In most cases there is no need to meet in person.

Signs Of A Cheating Spouse

Signs of a spouse cheating may become quite obvious to someone outside the relationship. This could be because some spouses may not be able to get past the denial stage of an extramarital affair. They simply could not believe that their spouse or mate could be involved in such deception.

Warning Signs of a Cheating Spouse:

  • The Cheaters may have a change in sex life (I.e. more sex, less sex) as well as unexplained sexual requests.
  • The cheater has a definite change in attitude towards everyone in the home, especially the mate.
  • Sudden change in appearance (clothes, working out)
  • Spending more time on the computer / Internet
  • Hang up phone calls
  • Unexplained absences
  • Constantly working late ( it should be on their pay stub)
  • Your gut feeling something is up (intuition is real)

If you have seen any of these signs, you may already have a problem. Whatever you do, DON’T confront them at least not for now. In most cases they may go to extra lengths to hide their affairs from you. You will need solid proof before confronting them and ultimately deciding what to do with your relationship. For unbiased testimony and proof from a professional, please contact ASI Investigations, Inc. now!

Child Custody / Recovery

At ASI we will provide assistance for court ordered situations involving South Florida child custody and recovery. There are many reasons why we think agents should be utilized in child custody cases. One being that we believe video tapping the visitation exchange of a child will capture the emotional effect they are experiencing. Then on the other hand, just the opposite; the behavior of the parent may need to be video taped as well. Often, we find that both parents want background checks completed on individuals who care for the child and/or will be directly involved with the child while not in the other parent’s immediate care: their character, types of activities, associations of the individual and other relevant facts.

Child Surveillance

In a child surveillance case, our agents will conduct surveillance of the activities of a parent, baby sitter, or nanny, while with the client’s child or children. This technique will be done by surveillance or fixed surveillance cameras, as allowed by law. Call us for a confidential consultation. If you need a child surveillance done in or around the South Florida area, call ASI now!

Child Support Investigations

Child support is defined as the obligation a parent has regarding the care and financial support of a child or children of a relationship that has ended. At ASI our agents can give you information about where your child’s deadbeat parent is living, where they are working and if they have any assets in their name. We will locate property records, vehicle registrations and other hidden assets, which will aid in collecting child support owed to you. With this information in-hand, you can then turn it over to the child enforcement agency. Our job is to get you as much information as possible so you can get the legal system to take action and get your child the support they deserve. Unfortunately, most court systems and support enforcement agencies are overloaded with cases of unpaid child support. That’s where ASI Investigations come in. If you are in need of a South Florida Child Support Investigation, please give us a call and let us help you. You may also contact us by completing the contact form above.

Items Required During The Interview

Global Positioning Satellite “GPS”

At ASI we are currently using the latest space age technology known as GPS to track motor vehicles. It is the same technology used by the US Government and in Automobiles by Onstar. Originally developed to help the military track airplanes and watercrafts, GPS is made up of approximately 24 satellites, each with a clock positioned so that three are always above the horizon. Earthbound receivers can determine the position of a person, place or thing by measuring the amount of time it takes for a signal to arrive from three of the satellites. Generally, the device is fitted to a car “covertly”, meaning it is hidden from view and there are no warning notices on the car to suggest that a device is attached. At ASI we use that latest GPS technology and magnetic mounting, so it takes only a few seconds to be up and running. Information is updated minute by minute 24 hours a day. This includes date, times, location and the speed of the vehicle.
