We are licensed private investigators based in Texas.

Who Hires Us?

Collection agencies, debt collectors, asset recovery specialists, attorneys, and individuals looking to collect judgments against individuals and businesses. Our clients cannot afford to purchase outdated or inaccurate information when trying to locate assets and collect judgments. Can you?

Asset Searches Q&A

A: Yes. Our search is limited to the individual you requested we investigate. If you need us to investigate someone else, including a spouse, it means double the work for us. Accordingly, we confine our efforts to the subject of the investigation only.

Infidelity Investigations

Infidelity is likely to be one of the most painful and devastating things that can happen to you. The embarrassment, fear, and betrayal can be overwhelming. Worse yet is not knowing if your spouse or partner is cheating on you. Even the prospect of a husband or wife being unfaithful is painful and extremely disruptive to your life. The private investigators at Cole Investigative Agency understand what you are going through and are committed to helping clients like you with these issues every day and getting the proof you need. We know that you need a private investigator to get you proof of infidelity or adultery so that you can move forward with your life.

Many prospective clients are worried about confidentially. You have our complete assurance that your case will be completely confidential, including the consultation. We are even willing to discuss your case without knowing who you are until you are comfortable that we can help and be trusted. Of course, the initial telephone consultation is free.

Unfortunately, once someone seriously suspects infidelity, the majority of the time, their suspicions are correct. Allow our private investigators to put an end to this fear and anxiety and get you the truth!

At Cole Investigative Agency, our experience has taught us that the better job we do of planning out a cheating spouse investigation, the more likely we are to get you the evidence you need and the less expensive it will be.

We know that a lack of adequate planning can be a big waste of time, and we will always make certain that you understand and agree to what we will be doing before we begin. This process will involve you being very candid with the private investigator and giving us as much useful information as possible. Without the information, we both lose!

Investigating cheating & marital infidelity is one of the most important services a private investigator can render.

Issues of infidelity need to be handled by a private investigator who is not only experienced at surveillance and information gathering they must also be well versed in family law to succeed. Our spouse surveillance investigators are comprised of some of the nation's best detectives at handling domestic matters and getting results that matter. Unlike many investigative agencies, we have a large, ethnic, and gender-diverse team of investigators at our disposal, ensuring that we have the right type of infidelity investigators for your case. This, combined with our state-of-the-art technology, extensive investigative resources, and regular training, makes us the premier investigative agency no matter where you are.

Regardless of whether you need to know the truth about a spouse's affair simply to go forward with your life or if you need proof of cheating and infidelity to win in court, Cole Investigative Agency is the Private Investigative agency for you. We leave nothing to chance!

Cole Investigative Agency, like most companies, charges our clients an hourly rate for surveillance, with mileage and any other investigative procedures being added. We design each surveillance to give you the best possible results, given what we collectively know about your spouse's activities. We do this in a sincere effort to give you the best opportunity to know the truth and to minimize your cost. The cost will be discussed with you before we begin, and prices vary depending on where the surveillance or investigation will take place, how many investigators you will need, and if any special equipment is required. It is very common for infidelity surveillance to require more than one investigator to be done successfully. Once we agree to start work, you will need to fill out our contract, make arrangements to get us the retainer, and make certain that you have a full understanding of what we will be doing for you.

Although spousal surveillance by a private investigator is one of the most frequently used tools for uncovering infidelity, each set of circumstances can call for different measures.

Because each case is unique, we ask that you give us a call and speak to one of our detectives about your particular situation so that we may assess which type of investigation will work best for you.
