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 [...]

    What to Expect When you Hire a PI for a Custody or Domestic Situation.

What to Expect When you Hire a PI for a Custody or Domestic Situation.

Divorce, Change of Custodial Parent, Infidelity, Abusive Relationships, Grandparent Rights, Internet Relationships are reasons to seek the assistance of a Private Investigator.  Many people or businesses have never had contact with a Private Investigative Company and have been instructed to reach out to a PI by their Attorney or a Friend or Family Member.  Introductions are free and you should never have to pay a consultation fee.  A good PI/Investigative Company will make you feel comfortable when you call, they will ask a lot of questions and also listen to what you have to say.

The first step for a PI is to learn about the Subject and that entails conducting a Background Check.  Background checks are conducted to obtain information that links the Subject [...]

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 [...]

Knowing the Unknown is a Valuable Tool

It isn’t easy to learn the truth and sometimes the truth isn’t easy on us either.  International Investigators, clears the path of misconceptions, intuitions and gossip and focuses on facts.

Sometimes the facts do not change the situation, and then there are times the facts create clarity and we see through all the haze and come out of the situation we are currently in better prepared to fight or to just let go.  We all want to know the truth; we want to know the facts so we can move on.

There isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t receive calls, an emails or a walk ins from someone lost in their life.  They cannot, by themselves, muddle through their situation without assistance from [...]

Steps Away From The Truth

Sometimes a divorce is simple when both parties agree to all the terms and division of property. We never hear about these divorces. When you add children into the situation, it can become a complicated process. Parents fight about custody, the visitation schedule and child support. And usually when children are involved the marriage is broken by infidelity. That is when the attorney reaches out to International Investigators, All In Investigations, Inc. for assistance. In these cases, there is a good chance that one of the partners is hiding much more than being unfaithful. It could be money; it could be pornography or other addictions.

Let’s take a step-by-step process to determine exactly what is happening in a typical complicated divorce with children when one [...]

    Don’t Do Nothing, Act Upon your Beliefs, you Could be Saving someone’s Life

Don’t Do Nothing, Act Upon your Beliefs, you Could be Saving someone’s Life

John knew he needed help. He had given his son, Thomas every opportunity to turn his life around and yet his son continued on the same downward spiral and then blamed his father for his many failures.  They say a parent is responsible for their children’s actions and that good parenting produces good children. That is no always the case. We tell our Clients that children learn by example, but some kids just never apply themselves and nothing a parent can do to encourage them to be more successful or responsible makes a difference. And this is exactly how our case began with John.

Thomas had some shady friends, although he had been childhood friends with them, he chose to maintain the friendship when he [...]

When I Say I Do!

Marriage:

1 a (1) : the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law (2) : the state of being united to a person of the same sex in a relationship like that of a traditional marriage.

Above is the definition of marriage, and into today’s society marriage can be between a man and a woman, a woman and a woman and a man and a man.  The definition doesn’t define each person who enters into a contractual relationship; it just explains the participants and nothing else.  Marriage is more than a contract, it is a relationship between two people who come together believing they know each other, that the words [...]

Dirty Little Secrets Hidden on Cell Phones

Some people are very protective of their information on the cellular devices. In many cases, marriages end by them. I’m not talking about too much texting or surfing, I’m referring to those secret texts and emails, along with photos. If your spouse is hiding his or her phone from you, or has it password protected and you can’t gain access to it, there is a reason. Either they are required if it is an employer issued device or they are hiding something they just don’t want you to see.

Let’s say you get access to their phone, you even have done some private investigation and learned their passcode and you still don’t see anything incriminating on the phone, but you know they are up to [...]
