Rectifying a Huge Back Child Support Issue

Marsha called us one morning stating she needed to hire a private investigator. Ralph, her ex-husband and irresponsible father of her four children, owed over $30,000 in back child support.   The court awarded her $75.00 per week support for each of her four children but that was 11 years ago.  Just about the same time Ralph disappeared.   Marsha worked two jobs but she did have the help of her family for emotional support.

Every year Marsha contacted her County Prosecutor’s office to see if they had located Ralph.   She was always told they “were still looking”.   They supposedly were coordinating with the Internal Revenue Service in case he had a tax return that could be garnished, but to no avail.   They had posted on several States’ [...]

Haunted – Why a GP Hired Us to Recon Her Own Office

Cassie owned and operated a successful general practice in a nearby town. Her office staff was small with only a handful of long-term employees operating out of a former residential house in the historic part of town. Cassie’s practice had been at this location for 12 years and there had never been any out-of-the-ordinary activities, unless you count the patients’ occasional unusual medical conditions.

However, a few months ago, Cassie’s receptionist and another staff member starting making jokes about the office being haunted. They would complain that when they set objects down, such as a stapler or even personal objects like lip gloss, the item would be gone when they went back to use it later. The missing object would show back up again in [...]

When Creepy Stalker Notes Turn Out to be Something Else

Marti found the first anonymous note lying on top of paperwork on her desk when she came back from lunch break. It was hand printed on common lined paper that was folded in half. The printing was bold and slanted slightly to the left. To Marti, it looked like a man’s writing. The note said, “I’m watching you.” At the time, Marti dismissed it as a joke by a bored co-worker and threw it away.

A few days later, Marti found the second anonymous note on her car windshield when she was leaving work for the day. This note looked just like the first one but this time it said, “Pretty in pink.” She was wearing a pink blouse that day. Marti was upset and [...]

No One is Ever Going to Hear My Conversations, Or are They?

Social Media: There are so many ways to communicate with social media, but if you break it down, your communication is either by word of mouth or the written word (picture). When you verbally communicate, your message is delivered and heard, then responded to or ignored, but you know right then whether your point was taken or rejected.

In the written form, usually by e-mail, text, or some form of social media, it is derived from a device, a cell phone, a tablet, a laptop or a tower computer. Your personal information is stored in these devices, and sometimes the cloud…and no matter what you write, text, post somebody somewhere that you don’t even know may have access it. That’s the chance we take when [...]

    They Thought They Permanently Deleted Files From Their Computer

They Thought They Permanently Deleted Files From Their Computer

Before writing this blog, I did some research on what computer users perceive when they delete a file from their computer.

Instructions on how to delete.

When you delete a file, it's usually moved to the Recycle Bin so that you can restore the file later if necessary. For information about recovering a file, see Recover files from the Recycle Bin.

To permanently remove files from your computer and reclaim any hard disk space they were using, you need to delete the files from the Recycle Bin. You can delete individual files from the Recycle Bin or empty the entire Recycle Bin at once.

Open the Recycle Bin by double-clicking the Recycle Binon the desktop.
Do one of the following:

To permanently delete one file, click it, press Delete, and then click Yes.

    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 [...]

My Son was 45 Years When I met him for the First Time

Today there is no shame in placing a child up for adoption, it is encouraged and the mother who made the decision with the best interest of her newborn child is commended and her life goes on. She has nothing to hide or be ashamed of. In today’s society, people have babies outside of wedlock, some continue their relationship without getting married, some raise the child on their own, some seek assistance from their families and some make a choice to give the child a better opportunity and place them in a family environment.

My Client became pregnant when she was 17 years old, a senior in high school with a boy she had been dating for a short period of time. Not only did [...]

Drown the Pool Contractor

A middle aged couple came into our office with a very peculiar request.  They had contracted a pool company to install a fiberglass pool in their backyard.  It had been a dream of theirs to have their kids and grandkids could come over and enjoy day long activities with them.

It was in early November they had contracted to have the pool installed.  They told us the contractor at that time was very nice, was very active and communicative to them.  Our Client said his wife had talked to the contractor and told him of their water problems in the basement, to which he replied he could help with that, they would install the pool and have a retaining wall towards the back of it [...]

Dating through Social Media

In life it isn’t easy meeting the right person, the woman/man of your dreams in a chance meeting.
