Divorce

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 [...]

    And If Hiding Assets Wasn’t Bad Enough, He Also Bugged Her Phone

And If Hiding Assets Wasn’t Bad Enough, He Also Bugged Her Phone

It was on a rainy day in March when Cleo realized something just wasn’t right with her phone.  She had been on various websites throughout the day looking for ideas for her newest project and the phone kept getting bogged down; this was the way she described how slow the phone reacted to surfing the web.  She also stated at times the phone would get hot to the touch and the battery life kept getting shorter and shorter, even though she had made sure the battery was almost drained before charging it.

When Cleo brought the phone to our office she informed us she was in the middle of a child custody case and was sure her ex-husband had a hand in the mysterious events [...]

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 [...]

Legal ways to track a cheater

After the “I Do’s”, come the “I Can’t Believe He Would Do That To Me”. We hear that a lot here at International Investigators. The ”I can’t believe” is always followed by financial woes. Having been left is hard; having been left with no financial security is difficult. Many times we hear how the wife has to succumb to these facts. Our Client was unaware of their finances [...]
