How can a Private Investigator help your Divorce Law case?
There are times when a private investigator (PI) will assist you in your divorce law case. These are:
Child Custody Cases:
Two areas PIs are used in Divorce Law Court child custody cases are surveillance and background research. Surveillance is when an investigator physically observes the opposing parties and collects information on their habits. Often the investigator looks for neglect, abuse, and documents the people that are connected to the children. In these cases the investigator documents the opposing parties activity via video cameras and a written report. In past cases, investigators have obtained evidence of drug use, neglect of the children, physical child abuse and adults with criminal records associated with the children.
Background Research is when your investigator conducts full background checks on the opposing parties and anyone who might be around your children. The most requested reason is when the opposing party resides with unknown individuals. It is vital to know who these unknown people really are and their backgrounds. In some cases our investigators have been able to determine criminal backgrounds and in rare cases their past sexual offences. An investigator can also locate individuals who need to be served with legal documents.
Child Support Cases:
In child support cases a PI can attempt to prove the current employment status of a parent. These parents often say they are not employed or claim they cannot work. Surveillance can be used to prove that these parents are in fact working, many times off the books, often being paid in cash. In some cases parents claim they cannot work due to injury. Through a surveillance level investigation, your investigator could show they are capable of working. For post judgement cases your investigator can help locate assets and accounts to collect on your judgement. This research can help identify all or most assets.
Spousal Maintenance (Support) Cases:
In spousal support cases private investigators are frequently requested to prove cohabitation, marriage or employment. In cases where the other party stated they live alone, we can conduct surveillance and research which may show they in fact have a significant other staying with them full time or that they are in fact married. In other cases, we can prove the other party is working when they state they cannot. Similar to child support cases, your investigator can help locate assets and accounts to collect on your judgement. This research can help identify all or most assets.
