    Divorce and Children: Investigations of Marital Infidelity Used in Child Custody Decisions

Divorce and Children: Investigations of Marital Infidelity Used in Child Custody Decisions

What starts with a request from one spouse for International Investigators to find proof of a cheating spouse or other marital infidelity often expands into another area: child custody.

The requests to find evidence of an extramarital affair by an unfaithful wife or unfaithful husband continue to surge, which is why we have much experience in this area. Many times, one spouse is already talking with an attorney and they already believe there have been signs of an affair and just need evidence.

Other times, it is not a secret affair or a desire to catch a cheating spouse. It could be financial or personal infidelity. Little (or not so little) lies or secrecy surrounding finances or activities could be the impetus for surveillance as well.

Property division orders can be set aside at times post-divorce. It wasn’t too long ago that such a request was made in the state of New York.

Foiled by a Mole, Proven by a Computer Forensics Investigation

Computer forensics investigators are asked to work on a wide variety of cases – from businesses concerned with the release of proprietary information to spouses in the midst of bitter divorce battles. Here at International Investigators, we find that computer forensics investigations are also becoming a tool in relationship investigations.

For instance, we had a case where a wife thought her husband had posted an ad on a dating sight. It was brought to her attention how much the man looked like her husband. The picture was a nude, full body photograph and the face was a profile shot with a hat sort of pulled down over his face. At first she just laughed and when she shared it with him, he denied it.
