Private Investigators in Hershey, Pennsylvania

 In Pennsylvania, private investigators are required by law to be licensed by a local County Judge.  Pennsylvania private investigators do not have to sit for a formal written exam, but applicants must have at least 3 years paid experience as an investigator.  This experience can come from a variety of different positions, including being a Detective on the police force, a Sheriff, any position on the police force higher than patrolman, or any position with one of the United States investigative agencies.  Applicants in Hershey need to contact the Clerk of Courts to make an appointment with a Dauphin County Judge.  In most cases, applicants will be investigated by a District Attorney; once this is completed, the County Judge will issue the private investigator license.  

The licensing requirements in Pennsylvania are strict, and all ICS private investigators are held to even stricter standards as a part of our mission to provide excellent service above and beyond minimum state requirements.  All investigators at ICS meet or exceed industry standards, providing you with effective and discreet investigative services.  When you speak to an investigator at ICS, you are not only choosing an experienced private investigative agency, you are also accessing the entire ICS network.  If you are in Pennsylvania but need a private investigation somewhere else in the country or the world, ICS will keep your case affordable, efficient and effective.

Hershey, Pennsylvania is located 14 miles east of Harrisburg and is considered part of the Harrisburg-Carlisle Metropolitan area in Dauphin County.  Hershey is known as one of Pennsylvania’s biggest tourist attractions, and is named after Milton S. Hershey, the creator of the Hershey chocolate bar.  ICS knows that private investigations in Hershey are not the same as private investigations in Philly or Pittsburgh, and we treat each case as unique, never applying a blanket investigative approach to solving your case.

Adultery, Infidelity, Cheating Spouse and Unfaithful Partner Investigations

If your spouse or partner is cheating, you deserve to know the truth.  Being the victim of infidelity is painful, but finding out for certain is the first step to getting your life back on track.  If you are ready to know the truth, call ICS for your free consultation.  An investigation by ICS can reveal the truth about a suspected affair, or provide the proof you need to take legal action in a divorce.  Either way, having proof of the affair is the best way to protect yourself against any emotional, physical, or legal repercussions in the future.  

If you suspect your partner of cheating, but you are not sure, here are a few common warning signs of an affair:

  • Excessive or secretive computer usage
  • Hiding their cell phone and making “personal” calls that they have to leave the room for
  • Hiding personal finances, or a discrepancy between income and funds available
  • Working uncharacteristically late, or taking last minute business trips
  • A sudden increase in sexual desire, or a complete lack of sexual desire
  • You have recently been diagnosed with an STD.  Even STDs with long incubation periods, such as herpes or HIV, should be viewed as suspicious
  • Abnormal activity on the home phone, including hang ups or hanging up after a specific number of rings
  • “Lost” wedding band, or “lost” photos of you or your children from your partner’s purse or wallet

If you have noticed any of these suspicious behaviors in your partner or spouse, call ICS to begin your Cheating Partner Investigation today.

If you are married, infidelity can play a huge role in the divorce process.    Pennsylvania is an at-fault state with a no-fault divorce option, so couples filing for divorce in Hershey or elsewhere in the Harrisburg-Carlisle Metropolitan area have a few options for what type of divorce they would like to pursue.  If you need to catch a cheater in action to prove your at-fault divorce claim, call ICS today to get the proof you need.  The commonwealth of Pennsylvania practices equitable distribution during a divorce, which means that property is divided equitably, i.e. fairly, not equally.  It is especially important to provide proof of an extramarital affair because Pennsylvania judges have a moderate amount of wiggle room when determining the distribution of assets and debts during the divorce.  The term “equitable” is somewhat subjective, meaning that one judge may deem one distribution as fair while another would not.  Even for unmarried couples, an unfaithful partner investigation will still protect your current and future interests.

The important thing to remember is that if you have been or are currently the victim of an affair, you are not alone.  Statistically, 57% of men and 54% of women in the United States admit to having had an affair at some point.  The average affair lasts for 2 years, and 53% of all marriages end in divorce, even if there was never any incident of adultery.

Child Custody, Visitation and Support Investigations

In child custody cases, the primary concern for everyone involved is always the welfare of the child.  In Hershey there are thousands of children affected by divorce and breakups.  Unfortunately, parents are often unable to agree on child custody arrangements.  In this case, a judge will determine if joint custody will be granted, or if one parent will have sole custody.  These decisions are never taken lightly, and judges consider many factors when they determine child custody arrangements.  If your spouse has committed adultery or has otherwise acted as an unfit parent, ICS can obtain the documentation you need to present to a judge during your child custody hearings to ensure that your child ends up in the best possible living situation.  It can be difficult for state agencies to determine when a child is in a poor living situation because of their limited funding and time resources, which is why it is often necessary to hire a private investigator instead of relying on government services.

Child support is determined based on the income and needs of both parents, based primarily on W-2 forms.  If you are struggling with a deadbeat dad or mom, it can be extremely difficult to get them to pay their required child support payments.  In Pennsylvania child support arrangements should be reviewed at least once every four years, but there is no need to wait that long if you are not receiving your child support payments.  Many parents earn income on the side that they purposely avoid claiming on their taxes in order to avoid increased child support payments.  An investigation by ICS can provide documentation of all income earned and report any discrepancies to you.  With this information a judge can restructure child support payments and take legal action against the other parent to force them to resume making payments.

A private investigator can also help any parent who is being victimized by the parent with primary custody.  Just as some parents hide their income to avoid paying child support, some parents hide their income to cheat the other parent out of more money.  If you feel your Ex is making more money than they admit, ICS can prove their income.  If there is a discrepancy in their earnings, your child support burden may be lessened, potentially saving you thousands of dollars a year.  A private investigator from ICS can utilize surveillance, skip tracing, hidden asset checks, public record searches, undercover investigations, and much more to solve your child custody or child support case.

Missing Person and Locate Person Investigations

Missing persons cases in Hershey are generally handled by local law enforcement and the FBI in collaboration with the AMBER alert system and the National Clearinghouse for Missing and Exploited Children.  Contrary to popular belief, it is not necessary to wait 24 hours to report a missing person, and doing so can be detrimental to the investigation.  A private investigator can assist law enforcement officers and can work to solve many cases that police are unable to investigate or unable to solve.  The police and FBI are limited in the types of cases they are able to accept, leaving hundreds of missing persons cases unsolved.  This is especially true for lost person cases, which the police will not touch.  If you are looking for a lost friend, lover, family member, call ICS to begin the search today.  Missing and lost person cases can be in attempt to find loved ones, or they can be focused around finding a thief, defrauder, blackmailer, extortionist, or for legal reasons, like process serving.  ICS always offers a free consultation to discuss your case so you can make an informed decision before you chose to hire a private investigator.  

Pennsylvania Background Checks

If you need a background check performed on an individual living in Pennsylvania, or if you live in Pennsylvania and need a background check performed out of state, ICS can help. Background checks are one the most common and well known tools a Pennsylvania private investigator can provide. Often, a background check is the only information a client needs.  In cases where a more in-depth investigation is called for, the background check is a great starting point, providing the investigator and client with valuable leads to pursue.  If you need a Pennsylvania background check, or if you have a case involving one, ICS is ready to work for you to provide the discreet and confidential service you need in a delicate and professional manner. ICS has been helping people in Pennsylvania just like you get results since 1967.

Computer and Cellular Forensics

In an increasingly technological world, it has become more important-and more difficult-to keep your personal information safe. Part of keeping your information safe involves knowing who has been accessing your personal electronic devices, and determining if information has been viewed or copied. ICS can retrieve and analyze data from electronic storage devices, like desktop and laptop computers, network servers, external storage drives, flash drives, digital cameras, smart phones such as the iPhone or Android phones, and more. All data retrieval methods used by ICS are complaint with all federal and Pennsylvania state laws, so any data recovered will be available to use as evidence. In addition to recovering emails, instant messages, and text messages, ICS also offers virus and spyware detection and removal, pornography detection, email tracing, computer and network intrusion detection and prevention, Internet history evaluation, and hidden files detection. Contact ICS today to ensure that your data and digital devices are safe. ICS can help protect you from the increasing threat of identity theft.

Technical Surveillance Countermeasures

Technical Surveillance Countermeasures are steps taken to detect and prevent unwanted surveillance. Technical surveillance often takes the form of eavesdropping by bugging a house, tapping a phone line, or installing hidden cameras, with the intention of committing corporate espionage, privacy invasion, extortion, identity theft, information theft, or stalking.  Being the victim of technical surveillance can endanger your personal safety, and leaves you vulnerable to potential financial damages. To ensure that you haven’t fallen prey to technical surveillance, ICS will perform a technical surveillance countermeasures sweep, which consists of sweeping for bugs, performing a physical and electronic inspection of the area to check for infrared, laser, audio recording, hidden cameras, wireless microphones, radio transmitters, phone taps, GPS tracking, and cell phone interceptors. A technical surveillance countermeasures sweep is not an investigation in itself, but rather is a service offered by ICS; if evidence of illegal surveillance is found, ICS will collaborate with a Pennsylvania private investigator to report findings and take appropriate action.
