You have a lot of options when considering a Private Investigator in Chattanooga Tennessee. You’re getting ready to go through a point in time you would prefer to avoid, correct? Truth is, it may get worse before it gets better, but keep your eye on the prize. It will get better. Might not be today but making smart moves now will speed up the process. We’re not here to tell you a bunch of marketing nonsense about how we’re the most trusted Private Investigator in the entire state, we’re the largest, number one Detective Agency the world has ever seen, or whatever everyone places on their websites these days.  We’re here to provide you with facts about Private Investigators and laws in Tennessee because it’s imperative you know them.  You’re traveling down a road you’ve never been before, right? 

Unfaithfulness or a child custody battle is a tough thing to deal with. Having a solid strategy is key to a successful ending. If you’ve already started down the legal path, then you’ve already got a taste of how our courts work. It’s very challenging and very expensive. Callers mention all the time they’ve been dealing with the courts for last 18+ months and feel as if they’ve gotten nowhere other than being mentally exhausted and watching all their money disappear. Attorney fees to fight in court can be overwhelming for you and your family. Our fees can be less than a ¼ of such. If you’ve done the research, you already know Tennessee is not a true a no-fault state. However, is the legal documentation of unfaithfulness just about the law and court? Absolutely not. Information is a powerful tool, and a tool that should be used as such.

What if you legally obtained damaging information about your spouse, or child’s parent they would not want in the open? Would they not be more susceptible to settling? In most cases that can be answered with a strong “yes”. Provided it’s obtained correctly and does not give opposing counsel a way to have it deemed inadmissible or sealed. During break-ups each party is prone to tell friends and family something along the lines of: “he or she is crazy, and I just had to get away”. But what if you had legally documented information that contradicts that statement from a licensed Private Investigator able to testify on your behalf? Would that person want to be known as a liar? What if the person they were messing around with was married? Perhaps a work colleague? Getting caught up in a scandal like this can follow them for years. And when children are involved, they can generally become privy to the information as well. 90% of our cases never see the inside of a courtroom because they settle beforehand. We are “Tennessee Licensed”, and available to work cases all over the state. Would you like to learn more about a different strategy? We always have a free, and friendly consultation.  Contact us to learn about “The Country Chattanooga Difference.” 


It all starts with our exclusive “FREE” consultation where the primary goal is to get a thorough understanding of your current situation. During the consultation, we will ask questions such as Do you know who your spouse may be involved with? What is their profession? What type of schedule do they keep? Is the other person married? Are there children involved? This process will be instrumental in creating teamwork to decipher the best strategy and most efficient approach to resolving your case in a timely manner. Once you agree our services will be beneficial, we shall proceed forward gathering all pertinent information to commence the case. This information will include; work schedules, vehicle information, physical appearances/attributes and any further data we together may deem necessary to successfully meet your goals.


Coming home late from work on a consistent basis
Unexplained or new reasons why he/she is abruptly leaving the residence or work
New clothes and sudden change in how he/she values appearance
Cellular phone and personal electronics are often hidden, heavily used and guarded.
Deletion of historical events, messages, voicemails.
Lack of intimacy and emotional disconnection
Negative attitude & changes towards you, family and friends
Overall disinterest in daily household activities and responsibilities


This is best answered by stating “anything you desire to know”. Meaning if you need assistance with a pending child custody hearing, a divorce, or you simply want to satisfy a suspicion about a boyfriend/girlfriend, work colleague, or relative, our purpose is to uncover the truth to place you in a position where you’re armed with facts opposed to many times “just that feeling”. Country Investigations as a Tennessee Licensed Private Investigator will provide complete documentation to all activities, with photographic and/or video evidence obtained throughout your investigation. In addition, we’ll work with any legal representation you have, and testify in court hearings should the need arise. We join your team to empower you with factual data to make the correct long-term decisions.


Just like many things in life the more information you have the better off you are. Rather the purpose being to satisfy a suspicion or a court related matter our job will remain the same “obtain efficient factual information”. If you’re hiring us for a divorce or child custody case, many of our cases never see the inside of a courtroom. The reason being we obtain enough information to place your in position of power to negotiate a settlement to you liking. This saves you time, money, and of course a lot of continual aggravation.

    Our Private Investigator services revolve around surveillance  cases. Generally our investigators will monitor one’s activities to determine their habits for our client’s specific needs.  This may include something along the lines of where someone may be going, what they’re doing, and who they’re doing it with. The Private Investigator will document all the activities by keep timed notes, as well as taking photos and/or video.  The investigator will strive to be as aggressive as they can, while keeping their presence confidential.  


    100% yes provided they are licensed.  We’re in an age that is experiencing a huge influx of non-licensed investigators advertising services all over the internet. The licensing boards are doing the best they can to stop this, however it gets complicated when the unlicensed investigator is not based in the State, they’re advertising in. Many of these agencies are acting as subcontractors whereas they take your case, then find a local investigator (generally the cheapest one they can) to provide the work and make a profit by doing nothing directly related to the actual task. Be sure to confirm any investigator you pay a fee to is licensed by that State in which the work is being done, as when it comes legal time, they may disappear on you, and there’s going to be very little you can do about it.  Our Tennessee Agency License number is 1962, feel free to confirm with the Arizona State Licensing Board.


    Yes, absolutely.  By hiring a “licensed investigator” you’re not violating any state laws. Any documentation or information during our investigation is legal and admissible in a court of law.


    No is not, we are licensed by The State of Tennessee to provides services.  Where you could get caught up in a stalking issue is by monitoring someone yourself (even your spouse), or having a friend, family or family member do it. Should that person catch you, then you’re opening yourself up to a possible restraining order. 


    They’re going to be times when that occurs, however in most cases especially when working domestic related cases, law enforcement is not going to be involved.  Law enforcement investigates criminal matters, whereas a domestic related situation such as an affair or child custody matter is going to be civil. There are times when our agency investigates someone been defrauded, and they feel law enforcement is not putting they effort in which they desire into the case, so they come to us. In this case any information we uncover can certainly be provided to law enforcement to further their progress.


    No, we cannot. Private Investigators do not carry badges or have any powers to legally detain or arrest anyone.  We can certainly report a crime, but to intervene to the point of holding someone against their will would not be lawful.


    Being a Private Investigator in Tennessee does not provide any special abilities to carry a firearm over what the abilities of a private citizen. Many states require a special license for a Private Investigator to carry a gun during their investigation, thus in reality we have more rules placed upon us then a normal citizen. No one at our agency has been granted any permissions to carry firearms when working any case on your behalf at any time. 


    There are many misconceptions when it comes to obtaining mobile phone records, as they’re many companies online stating they can do such things. They cannot, this is a scam. Aside from the fact hacking into a company’s website, and extracting information is a felony, it’s just simply not possible. To obtain one’s phone records will require a subpoena from the courts, therefore you would need an attorney for such an action, however the courts rarely if ever will issue such for a civil matter. When a crime has been committed and law enforcement is investigating, that’s a different story.  Don’t fall for someone on the internet stating they can get these records. 


    We cannot hack a phone.  Another misconception based on what some companies advertise to basically scam you.  We get 100+ calls a month stating, “my phone has been hacked”. The only way this is generally done would be by someone having full access to your phone, placing an app on it that may send them data as to calls, or messages coming and going from the phone. Do a search for Apple vs FBI. Back in 2015 the FBI was investigating a case in CA that rocked the nation. They had an iPhone that was locked and requested Apple provide them with a path to get into the phone. Apple refused. If the FBI which of course is backed by The United States Federal Government can’t hack a phone, stands to reason a Private Investigator is not going to be able to do this either.  If someone else has had access to your phone its recommended you take to your service provider to request they clean it out of any apps you may not be aware of. 


    Many times, what we may see in the movies we feel transcends to real life. What people generally mean by tracking a phone is doing what’s called a “ping”, whereas you’re telling the phone to send you a signal to provide its location. This can absolutely be done, however it’s not something a Private Investigator can do on their own. In most cases this would require a subpoena from the courts when a crime is being investigated by law enforcement.  If someone is telling you they can do that, they’re not being truthful.


    It’s not legal without consent of “all” owners.  However, even if you were to work around this, using the data from such is not going to 100% solidify say a charge of adultery which in most cases is the reason for using them in the first place, as there is no direct evidence to prove the person was driving that car. There is a lot various ruling in the courts when it comes to trackers.  We generally don’t like them too much as we see no point in placing ourselves or our clients in a precarious position of legalities. We’ve managed to get along for 20+ years without them just fine.


    Based on the license our agency holds, we’ve been vetted by various data companies that provide us information the common person cannot obtain.  We do not have access to people’s bank accounts, brokerage accounts, 401’s etc. This like other areas discussed above is an area where some companies advertise they obtain say people’s bank records. We’re not saying we don’t how to do it, what we’re saying is we never would as it’s 100% illegal. As time goes on with things such a 2-step verification, codes being sent to one’s phone for access permissions it’s very unlikely should you decide to hire someone practicing illegal activities you’re going to really receive accurate data.  Such information would require a subpoena from the courts to provide any real accuracy, and usefulness in a court of law. Finding things like hidden bank accounts in the Cayman Islands or such, is simply not something an investigator is going to be able to do for you.


    We work directly with individuals and law firms for various case request.  We have cases where say a wife hires us to monitor their spouse, we have cases where a grandparent hires us to monitor the parents. We have people hire our service for background searches, trying to locate people, needing the owner of properties. Primarily we’re hired by people who require information to help them get clarity as to what is going on for personal reasons, legal reasons, or to assist in decision making.


    There are many reasons why someone may want to hire a Private Investigator. For us 90% of our work is when someone needs information about another persons habits for various reasons.  Some are for legal reasons; some are just for closure or personal information. If you want to know something, can’t seem to get to the bottom of it yourself, give us a call and let’s see what we can do.


    If you found this website, then you’ve already figured out the largest part.  The next step to hire an investigator would be to contact them, go over your needs or goals, and see if they’re a good fit for what you desire to know.  It’s simple.


    There is no definitive answer to this question. If you just started dating someone, think it might be long term, but have some questions about their activities whereas you wonder if you’re just being too suspicious and there could be some validity to your thoughts, look at it like this.  You’re involved in something that could effect the rest of your life, so what’s the value to you? You’ve been involved in a child custody matter that’s been dragging on for 2+ years, you’ve spent thousands with a legal team, does not seem to be going anywhere, and you feel there could be some information out there to close the process, what’s the value there? It could even be as simple as wanting to know where your neighbor goes to breakfast each morning. Might seem a little silly, however each person has their owns wants and needs, so again what’s the value. Most investigators have a free consultation to go over a potential case, so there’s no harm in calling and talking about it. It’s all confidential.


    In most cases a Private Investigator is going to charge an hourly fee for surveillance.  There’s going to be a rather standard fee, ours start at 75 per hour, some agencies we’ve heard of may be $150 hour. It really depends on the individual agency and the area of the country you’re needing service.  An investigator here in Tennessee may be much cheaper than say one in Beverly Hills. For things such as locating someone in most cases it’s going to be a flat fee.


    A typical day for one of our field investigators would be going to a specific location at a specific time as outlined by our client. That investigator would locate the person or their vehicle, and then monitor their activities based on the clients wants or goals. The investigator would take photos, keep legal notes, and report that information back to their agency manager for client review. 


    Most agencies are always looking for that next rock star investigator. Many people that take on the job of an investigator might come from being retired law enforcement, retired miliary, or in some cases having a career goal in mind and being an investigator works into that that goal.  Some investigators work in the field providing surveillance services, some investigators work inside the office running searches or providing support to the field investigators.


    Each state is going to have different rules or laws when it comes to being an investigator, here in the State of Tennessee we’re licensed by the Department of Commerce and Insurance (TCDI). You can visit their website for more information, however here’s a brief understanding: A person who conducts a business that provides private detective services must be licensed by the TCDI. Unless otherwise provided, a person must be licensed by the TCDI as a private detective or as an agency before the person may conduct a business or provide private detective services in the State An applicant may be either an individual or a firm. An individual shall be of good character and reputation. If the applicant is a firm, each firm member shall be of good character and reputation.


    Before any business or individual can conduct private investigation services in The State of Tennessee, they must be licensed by the TCDI. If you’re interested in hiring such then make sure the agency your hiring is fully licensed by the state.


    Though only a fictional character our answer would be Sherlock Holmes


    Theodora Birch did work on The Watcher case in real life. The family hired another private investigator; however, he didn’t have a similar backstory to the show’s quiet star. Theodora is a retired jazz singer with an eye and a talent for investigation.

    Add Your HeIn the heart of Chattanooga, Tennessee, Emily found herself in the midst of a tumultuous dilemma that may require the service of a Private Investigator in Chattanooga. Her fiancé, James, had become increasingly distant in the past few months, and her suspicions were growing like a relentless storm. What had once been a harmonious relationship had transformed into a mysterious puzzle, and Emily needed answers. With a heavy heart, she decided to hire a Chattanooga private investigator to shadow James during his upcoming conference.  Emily had heard about the renowned Chattanooga private investigators Country Investigations from a friend who had used their services before. Emily contacted this private investigator firm's Chattanooga office  and had a nice chat with Kate Steele who was known for her discretion and for getting results, which was precisely what Emily needed in this delicate situation.  As James left for his business trip, Emily couldn't help but feel a sense of anxiety, like an invisible wall between them. She contacted her new Tennessee private investigator Kate and explained her concerns about James' recent behavior. Kate agreed to take the case, emphasizing the importance of professionalism and discretion. The conference was being held at a luxurious hotel in downtown Chattanooga Tennessee. Kate arrived early, donning a well-tailored business suit to blend in with the corporate crowd. She discreetly positioned herself in the hotel lobby, keeping a close eye on James as he mingled with colleagues and clients. The pressure of uncertainty weighed heavily on Emily as she awaited the private investigator's updates.  Throughout the conference, Kate kept a close watch on James, never allowing herself to be too conspicuous. Her years of experience had honed her ability to remain unseen while observing the subject of the private investigation. She snapped photographs, documented conversations, and even discreetly eavesdropped on James when she believed it was necessary  As the days passed, Kate's surveillance revealed that James was indeed behaving strangely. He frequently took secretive phone calls and excused himself from social events with vague explanations. Emily's heart ached with each update from Kate, confirming her worst fears. She had no choice but to confront the mounting evidence.  One evening, as the sun began to set over the scenic Tennessee River, Emily met with Kate to discuss the findings. They sat at a quiet café near the conference hotel in Chattanooga, away from prying eyes and ears. The soft hum of the city and the distant sound of a train provided a backdrop to their serious conversation.  "Emily, I want you to be prepared for what I'm about to tell you," Kate began, her tone compassionate but firm. "James has been meeting with another woman during his stay in Chattanooga. I have photographic evidence, and I overheard conversations that strongly suggest an affair."  Tears welled up in Emily's eyes, and she bit her trembling lip. The truth was painful, but she had needed to know. With 's support, she decided to confront James and bring their relationship to a closure.  As James returned from his conference, he was met with Emily's unwavering determination to get the truth. With the evidence collected by Kate as her private investigator ally, she confronted her fiancé and revealed her knowledge of the affair. It was a heart-wrenching conversation, and their relationship ended that night.  In the wake of her painful discovery, Emily found solace in the fact that the Chattanooga private investigator, had provided her with the truth she needed to move forward. Though the road ahead would be challenging, she was grateful for Kates professionalism and discretion throughout the investigation. The decision to hire a Chattanooga private investigator had given her the closure she needed to heal and begin a new chapter in her life

    In the heart of Chattanooga, Tennessee, Private Investigator Kate Steele found herself immersed in a complex child custody case. Her reputation as a top-notch Chattanooga private investigator had brought her many challenging cases, but this one was especially sensitive.  Kate's client, Sarah, was a distraught mother fighting for custody of her young daughter, Emma. Her ex-husband, David, had recently moved to Chattanooga after their divorce, and it seemed he was keeping Emma from Sarah without just cause. Sarah was convinced that something was amiss, and she turned to Chattanooga private investigator Kate for help.  With her years of experience and an extensive network of contacts, investigator Kate embarked on the case with a determination to uncover the truth. She started by gathering as much information as possible from Sarah and examining the divorce documents. It was clear that Sarah had a legitimate claim to custody, but David seemed unwilling to cooperate.  Kate began her private detective surveillance in Chattanooga discreetly, keeping a low profile to ensure that she wouldn't alert David to her presence. She observed David's daily routines and interactions, documenting any concerning behavior. Through her discreet inquiries, she discovered that David had been seen at various locations in Chattanooga, often with Emma in tow.  One evening, detective Kate trailed David to a park near the Tennessee River, where he was having a picnic with Emma, and what appeared to be his new love. This was the opportunity she had been waiting for. She discreetly captured photographs of the outing, showing that Emma appeared to be wondering around the park alone and untethered. Kate's goal was not to create conflict but to build a solid case in Sarah's favor.  Over several weeks, Kate continued to observe David's behavior and interactions with Emma, capturing evidence that painted a comprehensive picture of his parenting abilities where the new love interested in his life well outweighed his solid parenting skills. Her meticulous work proved that he was indeed a responsible and loving father, and that Emma was not in any danger.  With the wealth of information she had gathered, investigator Kate approached the custody hearing with confidence. She provided Sarah with a detailed report, complete with photographs and observations that illustrated David's lack of commitment to their daughter's well-being. The court recognized the significance of Kate's findings, and Sarah's chances of gaining custody dramatically improved.  In the courtroom, Kate Steele's testimony was a crucial element in the custody case. Her reputation as a reliable Chattanooga private investigator carried weight, and the evidence she presented was undeniable. The judge ruled in favor of Sarah, granting her shared custody of Emma.  Sarah was overjoyed with the outcome, and she expressed her profound gratitude to Kate for her dedication to the case. Kate's expertise as a Chattanooga private investigator had helped reunite a loving mother and daughter, ensuring that they could continue to build a strong and lasting bond.  As the case concluded, Kate couldn't help but reflect on her role in reuniting families. Her work as a Chattanooga private investigator was not just about uncovering the truth; it was about making a positive difference in people's lives, one case at a time.

    In the bustling heart of Chattanooga, Tennessee, the seasoned private investigator Kate Steele found herself ensnared in a case that unraveled like a contemporary Shakespearean drama. A well-known Hamilton County couple, whose love story had appeared flawless, having first crossed paths online in 2002, fallen deeply in love, and exchanged vows in a star-studded 2009 ceremony, was now teetering on the edge of divorce, less than two years into their marriage. Their romance had captured the imaginations of many, but beneath the surface, a long-concealed secret had been simmering for nine years. The high-profile divorce proceedings commenced with a seemingly straightforward reason offered by the wife, a shocking revelation for those who had considered the couple inseparable since their virtual encounter. However, as the legal battle progressed, it became apparent that a far deeper and hidden undercurrent was at play.  Kate Steele, a revered Chattanooga private investigator known for her astute instincts and unwavering commitment to the community, was enlisted to unravel the enigmatic web of this situation. Her private investigation commenced with an exhaustive exploration of the couple's history, both in the public eye and behind closed doors. She unearthed a trail of love letters, photographs, and cherished memories that seemed to solidify their unbreakable bond over the years. Yet concealed beneath this façade lay a corrosive secret gnawing at the very foundation of their relationship.  As Kate delved further into the mystery, she unveiled a series of covert rendezvous and concealed correspondences dating back nine years, all within the confines of upscale Chattanooga hotels. The initial reason cited by the wife barely scratched the surface of the truth. Unexpectedly, Kate stumbled upon evidence that the husband had been engaged in a clandestine affair with a world-famous figure from Nashville's music industry before their wedding. The woman he vowed to spend his life with was not the sole recipient of his heart.  This revelation sent shockwaves through the divorce proceedings, the Nashville public service sector, and the music scene, marking a scandal unlike any seen in Chattanooga for decades. It was an astonishing and unforeseen twist in the tale of a couple who had appeared destined for a lifetime of bliss. The secret affair had been the underlying issue that had eaten away at their love and trust, leaving behind a trail of heartache.  Kate Steele's tenacious private investigation unveiled a timeline of concealed encounters, secret phone calls, and furtive getaways that had continued for nearly a decade. The truth was a devastating blow for the wife, who had remained blissfully unaware of her husband's infidelity all those years. As the truth emerged, the divorce proceedings took an entirely new direction. The wife, once eager to sever ties and move forward, now sought closure and answers. The husband, confronted with the consequences of his actions both privately and publicly, had to confront the weight of his betrayal.  In the end, the story of the Chattanooga couple with what seemed to be a perfect love story revealed the intricate layers of human relationships. Kate Steele's unflagging private investigation laid bare a nine-year secret affair that had remained hidden, elucidating the profound underlying issue in their relationship. It was a tale of love, betrayal, and the relentless pursuit of truth, a stark reminder that appearances can be deceiving and even the most seemingly flawless love stories may conceal profound, hidden secrets.
