FocalPoint Investigations takes pride in its many professional private investigative services. We specialize in evidentiary proof that is legally admissible and ethically acquired. No matter what your private investigative needs, chances are a member of our team is qualified for the job.


All too frequently someone can find themselves in trouble with the law through no fault of their own, overzealous or sloppy police work, faulty or incomplete information, or simply by being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Attorneys in particular need to know if their clients are telling the truth. FocalPoint Investigations employs seasoned detectives that can help arrive at the truth and uncover missing or overlooked evidence.

Fraud Investigations
Our expertise in the area of fraud investigations includes a Certified Fraud Examiner and CPA. We have the proven ability to: examine data and records to detect and trace fraudulent transactions; interview suspects to obtain information and confessions; write investigation reports to legally accepted standards; testify at trial; apply the law as it relates to fraud and fraud investigations; and identify the underlying factors that motivate individuals to commit fraud.

Elder Protection
With our aging population, families sometimes suspect that an elder or other vulnerable adult is being abused or exploited. Sadly, this often takes place at the hands of a caregiver, family member, or other trusted individual. Learn the signs of elder abuse and let us help you confirm or dispel your suspicions.

Insurance Fraud
Everyone suffers when an insurer is defrauded. Through surveaillance and other investigative techniques, our team can determine whether or not a claim is fraudulent or inflated.

Domestic Matters
You’ve seen the signs but have been in denial. Maybe it’s nothing. But then again…? If these types of questions are bugging you, we can help. At Focal Point Investigations, we know domestic cases can be quite sticky and the stakes are often high. That’s why we guarantee a discreet and confidential approach. While nobody likes to see a family in crisis, we can get to the truth, no matter how tough it is, and help you negotiate your way through a very difficult situation.

Security Assessments
We live in a complex world where the threats are real. Can you confidently say that you have met your obligation of providing a safe and secure workplace for your employees or family? We can help you maintain a safe and secure environment through onsite and thorough background checks.

Locating Lost Loved Ones
Maybe you were faced with the tough decision of giving a child up for adoption. Or maybe you were the child. Or maybe you were estranged from a family member some years back. But now times are different and you’ve been thinking of trying to be reunited. There can be all sorts of reasons why you might have lost touch with someone you care about. We can help you track down a lost loved one (or even an old flame) and act as an intermediary to be sure they are ready and willing for a reconciliation.

Child Custody
This is one of the most difficult and heart-rending situations that we face. But the welfare of the child has to be the primary concern. We can help determine if a child is being abused, neglected, or otherwise subjected to an unhealthy environment. We can also locate deadbeat parents, identify hidden assets and sources of income, determine parental misconduct, and find children who have been abducted by a non-custodial parent or other family member.

Background Checks
People are not always who they appear to be. Wouldn’t it be nice to know that your new delivery driver has a record of arrests, that a potential tenant is a in another state, that the applicant for a new checkout clerk has a history of employee theft, or that your daughter’s new heart-throb has a shady past? Or how about that person you met on the internet? Are they really who they appear to be? At FPI, we dig up the truth so that you can protect yourself, your loved ones, and your company.

Suspicious Deaths
The coroner ruled it a natural death, but something just doesn’t seem right. We can help you determine if the death is what it appears to be and double-check behind law enforcement just to be sure they didn’t miss anything.

Employee Theft
Unscrupulous employees siphon away profits and impact customer relationships. Do you know for sure you can trust your employees to do the right thing when you’re not around? We recently cracked a case that involved the theft of over $40,000 worth of fuel. We can help you determine if you have a theft problem and, if so, build a case against the responsible party.

GPS Tracking
It’s often necessary to track a target’s movements to see where (and with whom) they are spending their time. If you have suspicions about a spouse or an employee, we can discreetly track their vehicle’s movement.

“Catfish” Protection
Internet dating can be a marvelous experience and a fantastic use of technology. But it can also lead to disaster. We can help you determine if that person who seems so wonderful online is really who they represent themselves to be before you get too deep into the relationship or agree to an in-person meeting.

Counter-Surveillance
Ever had the feeling someone is watching you? Maybe it’s not just a feeling. It’s better to be safe than sorry. If you think someone is tracking your movements, we can help with surveillance counter-measures.

Skip Tracing
Having trouble finding someone? Maybe they owe you money, skipped out on bond, or are ducking service of process. We can help you track them down and hold them accountable for their legal obligations.

Polygraph Services
Polygraph examinations can be a useful tool for arriving at the truth of a matter. But professional examiners can be hard to find. We are one of the few private investigation firms in SC with a seasoned polygrapher on our team.
