Infidelity in marriages breaks down the trust between spouses, which is why it often ends in divorce. You might think after the marital infidelity investigation and subsequent divorce proceedings; everything between two ex-spouses is done. Often, that just isn’t the case – especially when there are children involved.
When infidelity in marriages results in ex-spouses, and they have to continue to interact with each other, the level of trust between the two parties is low. This can result in a lot of continued animosity and hostility. Sometimes it is justified and sometimes it is not.
In a recent situation, an ex-husband came to us. The ex-husband said he was beyond the marriage infidelity and all the emotions that go with that. He wasn’t looking for a way to get even for the past. To him, it was a factual situation that he needed help to resolve.
He shared custody of his two children with his ex-wife. She had been ordered by the court to keep their children away from a certain person with a violent criminal background. This person was not the cause for the breakup, but had become someone with whom his ex-wife was spending more time with on a regular basis. The ex-husband believed she was not obeying that ruling. His children would mention the person and tell what they had been doing that day in the company of the person.
He was distraught because he felt her deceit moved beyond infidelity in marriage and was now potentially harmful to his children and he felt powerless. He was concerned for their welfare, and needed evidence and proof to provide to the court in order to resolve the issue.
was able to help him gather evidence through our investigative techniques. We were able to provide substantial documentation including surveillance logs and photos to prove, without question, that the children were in the presence of the offender on a regular basis.
Needless to say, the judge wasn’t happy and some changes were made to the custody agreement. Instead of resorting to screaming or violence, the ex-husband let gather what he needed to support his position.
