Divorce Property Division, Are You Sure You’re Getting Your Half of The Assets?

There have been many songs written about “Breakups” and “Divorces” where one party is emotionally more affected than the other.  It doesn’t matter if love is lost, someone has an extra marital affair or life choices is the cause, one party may either be surprised by the decision or has seen it coming for a while.  When love is lost, the divorce may be an easy process, but if one party has wronged the other, there may be ramifications for the party who made the decision to quit the marriage. Like the old saying goes:  Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.1

Men or women may be blind-sided when they are asked for a divorce.  They didn’t realize there were issues in the relationship; [...]

The Top Questions On What Information You Can Expect From A Private Investigator

We get a lot of questions with regards to specific requests for various types of investigations.

Mostly:  Is it possible to get…

A Driving History ~ Yes, to obtain a Driving History on an individual, we must have a valid reason to access the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.  EX:  Civil Litigation or Criminal Defense, Pre-Employment Background check (with authorization to release form signed by the Subject)
Registration Records ~ Yes, We will pull the registration records while we are conducting surveillance to verify if in fact an individual is residing at a specific residence.  We will pull a registration record in the process of serving legal documents when the defendant or witness is dodging service.  We also pull registration records for a Civil Litigation Case [...]

A Song Trip Though Memory Lane: How to Know When You Need a Private Investigator

The long and winding road can lead us to locating a missing person or heir.  Verifying their identity prevents us from hearing, it’ ain’t me babe, so you know when you receive our results, you have a ticket to ride straight to court or close a trust, then you can lay back and drink a beer.

I heard it through the grapevine that some people run to the hills to avoid the process of service, even a smooth criminal can’t escape the real world.   We will locate them, serve them legal documents, create an affidavit of service and justice for all.  Not all locates require serving legal documents, some searches are for lost loves, not all people are found by chasing pavements or by a [...]

Investigations: Fact or Fiction

Our results are the truth: Is what we think we see or what we have heard or the way we feel fact or fiction? Investigations are conducted to uncover the truth. A Background Check to learn about an individual, Surveillance to observe activity, Polygraph or VSA for deception, Forensic Analysis for malware and extraction of data, Asset Search for hidden funds or net worth are conducted when finding the truth matters.

We want to know if our spouse, boyfriend, significant other is faithful, and if not, we want them to have the courage to be honest about their activities, but that isn’t always the case. How do we find the answers?
We want our children to be safe when we drop them off at [...]

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 [...]

When to Investigate AND When Not to Investigate

I am a firm believer in the phrase, “Life Happens”, referencing situations and events that you can and cannot control.  When decisions are made by others that personally affect you, you have two choices:  “Let it Go!” Or take “Action” How do you decide which path to take. I get that question all the time from prospective Clients. They want to know what they can do or if they should do anything. I am far from having the qualifications to provide professional legal or mental advice, but I am certain from years of being a professional investigator qualifies me to provide recommendations and share like case findings and results.

To sit back and do nothing may be the most logical option, but if it causes [...]

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 [...]

Allegations and Accusations

Some of our inquires become cases due to accusations or allegations in the workplace, during a divorce or custody battle, amongst friends or within a marriage.  Words are powerful.  They can be uplifting or they can degrade and when someone has been falsely accused of an action or a rumor has been spread that holds little to no truth it is very difficult to prove otherwise.   Then there are the cases of he said/she said and that too is hard to disprove or prove.  If the Client needs to know the truth about a situation a Polygraph Test or a Voice Stress Analysis are two ways to learn the facts.  Polygraphs measure heart rate, respiration, galvanic skin response, blood pressure and other changes in [...]
