Private Investigations and Personal Security/Verification of Arrest

Question
We think the x-wife was arrested for drunk driving.  What is the best way to find out if she was arrested?

Answer
Depending upon where you think the arrest was made, you will need to go to the local criminal court and review the name indexes; these are public records and you have a right to look at them.

Once you have found the name you will be able to determine what the court's case number is; request the file and review the contents.

If you have any problems with this, please write me back!

I can answer almost any question with regards to the individual state laws concerning private investigators; best practices and procedures used in private investigations;how to determine if the agency or investigator you are contemplating using is sufficiently qualified to do the work and if an investigation was conducted in accordance with the standards of practice and care used in the professional investigative industry. I can also direct you with regards to doing your own research in certain situations, such as finding someone who owes you money. I can steer you through the database "minefield" with regards to which databases contain useful information and which don't. I can also advise regarding the kind of information that you can legally obtain and what's not legal.
