Unreported Marital Assets and How to Find Them

Long ago, believe it or not, a housewife was given an allowance to purchase household goods and groceries. Let’s say the monthly allotment was $200.00 and the household goods and grocery shopping combined came to $185.00. The extra $15.00 was put into a secret spot to be used later for whatever reason. Years go by and the “secret savings” amounted to over a couple thousand dollars. Only she knew about the money. It was hers to be used as she pleased, maybe a new dress, the beginning of a college fund for the kids or as a luxury treat.

Fast forward decades later. This time, it’s the husband who has the “secret savings” but not tucked under a mattress or in a jar. He files [...]

How Can a Private Investigator Help in my Child Support Case?

Child Support is ordered by the court to assist one parent in providing for the children born in a marriage or a relationship.  In one case we investigated, the father, Jack decided to stop paying support because his ex-wife had recently started dating and he felt as if the support was being used for her entertainment.  The children still needed a roof over their heads, food on the table, tuition to school, medical care and to participate in extracurricular activities.  Jack’s lack of contributing financially wasn’t due to his being an irresponsible father, it was solely based on jealousy.  He still maintained his rights for his weekends with the kids because he knew his ex-wife could not withhold visitation due to not paying support.  [...]

D.I.V.O.R.C.E

Divorces can be nasty; Divorce Attorneys can be nastier and with good cause. In some cases, the respondent in a divorce proceeding didn’t even see a problem in the marriage, they thought they were happily married and were taken by surprise when they received the legal documents. Then there are situations when the divorce was long overdue but the thought of the fight was just too much to handle. Infidelity divorces are painful and are usually denied by the partner involved in a relationship outside of the boundaries of marriage. When there isn’t actual proof, just an intuition and you need to know the truth to decide to either end the marriage or forgive. And in some divorces, one partner is far savvier than [...]

Affairs, Assets, and Child Custody

What do a secret affair, hidden assets and child custody have in common? Everything!  International Investigators understands that when something is not as it seems, it usually involves more than just one issue.

Take for instance the case we worked that involved a wife, a husband, a lover, a bank and two children.  Sounds like a made for TV Reality show, and many times our Client’s will tell us, you won’t believe this, it could be on TV, or my life could be a bestselling novel.  And yes, the story of their current life situation could very well be.  It’s not the story, it’s not the events, it’s not the other woman or other man, it’s not the activity that in the long run we [...]

Gaining Information in a Divorce Illegally

Apps regularly pop up in divorce cases, experts say. Over 80% of U.S. divorce attorneys say they’ve seen a rise in the number of cases using social networking, according to the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML)

Sometimes it’s not the social networking sites themselves, but how they are accessed to gain information.

With that said, let’s remember, there are legal apps that are helpful when you have an aging parent, a teenage child, or apps that allow family members to see every phone’s location.  These apps are helpful since everyone is aware they are installed on the phone.

But what if there is an app on your phone that does more than show your location?  What if the app allows someone else to see your text [...]
