We Asked Ron Rugen How and Why
 He Became a Private Investigator?

Rugen: "When I get a call from someone in pain because they believe their spouse is cheating on them, I feel their pain.  More often than not, the first words I hear is 'I never thought I would need to hire a private investigator'.

I totally understand what they're going through and how they are hurting.  I've gone through this myself. I was cheated on myself.  You feel like someone just hit you in the gut and you can't breathe.  When I went through my divorce, I quickly realized two things:  one, your attorney needs someone (a private investigator) to get them the information they need.  Secondly, you can't do it yourself.  If you try doing it yourself, you not only make mistakes but, subliminally, the spouse is aware of your look out of the corner of their eye.  A private investigator can be non-emotional and be an unbiased observer of the facts while gathering evidence legally.

Prior to studying and training to be a PI, I was a news reporter.  Being a private investigator is not much different. It's about fact gathering and being objective about what you see.  Plus, with my television bac
kground, my surveillance video is not shakey and questionable like you would get from an untrained amateur."


 
   
Are There So-Called PIs That Will Charge You Less?
Rugen:  "Absolutely.  But, they know what they're worth.
We're not expensive.  We bill at an average rate of most professionals in the industry.

If you find a PI that will bill less for their services, you have to ask, why?  Is it because they do not go to annual conferences to keep honing their skills? Is it because they do not have the equipment to do the job effectively (such as night vision cameras, body cameras to use in restaurants and bars)?  Is it because they don't have the experience to make the judgment calls necessary?  Do they know what they're worth?  If they are willing to bill you less, are you wasting the money you do pay them for inferior results?"

   Isn't Missouri a No-Fault State?
Rugen:  "Yes.  But sometimes, like me, you just need to know the truth for peace of mind.  Particularly, if you have children, you need to know this big decision you have to make is the right decision and you aren't just, as your spouse would have you believe, imagining it all.

In the courtroom, with all due respect, the judge can do whatever he/she thinks is right in terms of custody or disporportionate distribution of the marital assets."
