Marital Infidelity

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 [...]

Are You Sabotaging Your Own Business’s Digital Security?

You wouldn’t be the first business owner to use their work email address for non business related tasks. Sometimes it might make sense to use your business email account during online orders, quote applications, etc. However, this might not be the smartest move. When you send an email anywhere the email will move through various networks. If the company your dealing with has lax daisy network security system you could in fact be asking for malware to be directed right back at your own network via email responses.

There are other scenarios to consider as well. How many users and what type of privileges to the users on the business network have? Can they also send emails and if so are the emails monitored? If [...]

    You think it’s just a bump in the road, when in fact, it’s a full fledge road block

You think it’s just a bump in the road, when in fact, it’s a full fledge road block

Mary would drive home every night from work with a heavy heart and so many thoughts running through her mind. Every night she wondered what time her husband would arrive home, would he be waiting for her or her waiting for him. It was a dreadful game she played with herself.

For the last year and a half of her fifteen year marriage, Mary kept the thought of that little bump in the road to herself hoping it wouldn’t get any bigger, but that wouldn’t be the case for her. Mary felt she was dealing with an unfaithful husband and didn’t want to believe he could be a cheating spouse. An attorney friend recommended Mary to meet with International Investigators to determine if in fact [...]

Marriage Infidelity Claim Leads to Unexpected GPS Tracking

Some of the cases we get at International Investigators can be pretty interesting – especially when it comes to suspected marital infidelity cases. Take for example, the case of the jealous, controlling husband who believed his wife was having an affair.

Bob* and Meredith* had only been married for a year. While they were dating, Bob had been very sweet and attentive toward Meredith. But after their marriage, Bob was becoming more overbearing. He not only controlled all of their finances with an iron fist, but whenever Meredith came home late from work, he would question where she had been and who she had been with.

When Meredith told her parents that Bob had accused her of having an extramarital affair with liaisons at a local [...]

    Are Employees Putting Holes in Your Business’s Digital Security?

Are Employees Putting Holes in Your Business’s Digital Security?

As if business owners didn’t have enough to worry about, computer hackers are opening a new can of worms that can affect businesses on the sly. And not only is it a problem, but an embarrassing situation as well.

Let me give you an example:

There was a site based in Canada called Ashley Madison devoted to allowing people to arrange extramarital affairs. The site was hacked and the identities of the subscribers were leaked out to the hackers. The data was traced back to the subscribers and they were sent emails infected with malware.

Where the rub for businesses came in was that many of the subscribers had subscribed to the service using their business email addresses. So after the data leak, the malware went back [...]

Is it Employee Embezzlement?

A very depressed-looking business owner came in for an appointment at International Investigators. We are accustomed to clients or prospective clients arriving emotionally charged, either very angry or hurt, but they don’t usually act like this gentleman.

Once talking, he explained that he was “darn near just ready to chuck it all in.” He said he was just confounded by what he knew was going on in his company. He just needed proof of it and confirmation of how deep the damage went.

Whew. He explained that because his company dealt with many clients coming in for training from out of town, he maintained an apartment for their use doing their stay. It was fully furnished and maintained. What he had discovered was that it had [...]

Child Custody and the “Extramarital Affair King”

One of the most emotionally charged aspects of divorce, many years after the divorce is final, is child custody. In some cases it is used as a way to punish ex-spouses. But in other situations, it is a question of the welfare of the child(ren) that is at stake.

When an ex-spouse reaches out to an attorney about those situations, the first thing an attorney must ascertain is whether the child is being played as a pawn between angry exes or if there truly is a case for changing custody rulings.

It’s very difficult to prove. So many times it is a case of “he said,” “she said. So, in order to make an accurate determination, attorneys call private investigators like International Investigators. A child custody [...]

    International Investigators: Where the Only Routine is Truth and Facts

International Investigators: Where the Only Routine is Truth and Facts

Most, if not all of us, have experienced situations where we felt powerless. It’s not pleasant, by any means. Feeling like you have absolutely no control over a situation is difficult. But sometimes, even when we realize that we can’t change the outcome, we do occasionally identify a need and try to get that need met. Confused? Allow International Investigators to share some examples about the variety of ways investigators assist our clients to get the best outcome possible:

Money and Infidelity.

Your spouse announces that he no longer loves you as a wife. He doesn’t want to be married to you anymore. And no, he isn’t cheating. He just simply wants a divorce. All people are different. You might accept that speech at face value, [...]

Infidelity is Not Just in Marriage

When the topic of infidelity comes up, almost without pause, people think marital infidelity. Cheating wives. Cheating husbands. But, in reality, the potential for a cheating boyfriend or cheating girlfriend is just as, or more, likely. Perhaps it is because there is less of a commitment, less of a financial investment that secret affairs are really less discreet affairs.

Relationships between a boyfriend and a girlfriend can be as long-lasting and as intense as a marriage – and as difficult to break as a marriage. We know from experience here at International Investigators that these breakups can be as contentious as the most hostile divorce.

It’s not uncommon for our digital forensics and the cell phone hack detection or spyware detector services on computers to center [...]

    Accusations Proved False with Investigator’s Facts and Evidence

Accusations Proved False with Investigator’s Facts and Evidence

In every professional capacity, International Investigators staff gathers the truth. But quite often, the general public assumes that the majority of our time is spent finding hidden divorce assets and proving workers compensation fraud.

Because of our stellar reputation with lawyers, a defense attorney and his client appeared in our office, desperate for our assistance. The client, Jon (name changed), was a well-known professional athlete who had been arrested and charged with rape. To make the matter even worse, the victim was a minor female, age 17. As you can probably guess, the media was in a frenzy.

Jon and his defense attorney requested assistance from our office, to prove Jon’s innocence. Jon admitted that yes, he briefly attended a party where he met and spoke [...]
