Does Cyberbullying Happen to Adults

Did you know that cyberbullying can happen to adults as well as children and teens, that some persistent cases of cyberbullying constitute a crime, and that Los Angeles private detective agencies are being hired more often to investigate it? Discussions about cyberbullying often frame the problem as an unfortunate phenomenon among adolescents, a disciplinary issue to be dealt with primarily by parents and educators. However, more and more adults are reporting being the victims of cyberbullying at work, through social media and via online gaming platforms. No matter the age of those involved, hiring a licensed California private investigator can significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to identify those responsible and bring the harassment to an end. Not only that, but in cases determined to constitute a violation of California’s laws against bullying and harassment, an L.A. private investigator can conduct a thorough investigation, gather useful evidence, and even testify in court on our client’s behalf. Kinsey Investigations is a licensed and insured California private investigations firm, and our team of female private detectives have decades of experience and a passion for helping our clients and their families through all kinds of highly emotional cases.

Kinsey Investigations Civil Litigation Support

Private Investigator Supporting Civil Litigation in California

Los Angeles private detectives know the difference between civil and criminal legal cases, but if you’re not private investigator and not employed in a law or law enforcement career, you may not understand what separates these two very different types of legal proceedings. Criminal charges, litigation and penalties refer to cases brought against an individual, business, etc. by a government entity, whether state, federal or another municipal body. Civil cases, on the other hand, are instead initiated by individuals, businesses or other non-government entities, and the process of filing and bringing the suit falls entirely to that filing party and any legal counsel they choose to retain. You can read more information about the differences in our previous post. Process service, often facilitated by a licensed process server is one of the first steps in civil litigation, and many individuals hire California private investigation firms to take care of this important legal requirement. If you are planning to file a civil case, deciding to work with a private investigator, usually in addition to legal counsel, can prove very valuable to your case. Kinsey Investigations is a private investigation firm licensed and insured throughout California, with decades of experience providing services and support for civil cases. Beginning with process service and transitioning into civil litigation support, we can help our clients take the required legal steps to go to trial as well as gather and review evidence that strengthens their case.
