We recently got a call for a request for lie detection testing due to a spy on cell case. According to Luann, her husband of 20 years had been unfaithful for years. She was certain he had installed some type of cell spyware on her phone so that he could determine where she was, allowing him the opportunity to meet up with his lover. She also inquired into a cheating spouse investigator watching where he goes and with whom he spends his free time with. She even accused him of stashing away money so he could spend it on his girlfriend and wanted a financial investigation completed. She also accused him of employee embezzlement. Her frustration level was high and she demanded immediate results [...]
It all started with a lie detection test at International Investigators. It was a she said, he said situation with both parties confident their beliefs of the situation would clear the air and settle the turmoil between them. What it turned out to be was something much deeper and emotional than either expected and the direction of their relationship took a dramatic turn towards a journey neither he nor she imagined.
First, let me explain that a detection of deception test is quite different than what is viewed on television programs. Nobody is asked any questions during the test that have not been thoroughly discussed prior to the test, so in reality, anyone taking the test knows upfront what they are going to be asked. [...]
Hidden Asset Search Companies: How A Private Investigator Can Expand Your Financial Asset Research Results

What do a secret affair, hidden assets and child custody have in common? Everything! International Investigators understands that when something is not as it seems, it usually involves more than just one issue.
Take for instance the case we worked that involved a wife, a husband, a lover, a bank and two children. Sounds like a made for TV Reality show, and many times our Client’s will tell us, you won’t believe this, it could be on TV, or my life could be a bestselling novel. And yes, the story of their current life situation could very well be. It’s not the story, it’s not the events, it’s not the other woman or other man, it’s not the activity that in the long run we [...]
Hiding assets in divorce is probably the number one strategic plan of someone with wealth to do. Hidden assets can be money, property or anything of value you want to keep from your spouse. Good financial investigators can find hidden assets. An asset investigation begins with obtaining information from the Client on the Subject. Investigative companies are asset search companies as they have the tools to delve into someone’s financial profile. If you feel your spouse or significant other may be hiding parts of their financial wealth, the best avenue is to contact a company, like International Investigators, Inc.

Sometimes a divorce is simple when both parties agree to all the terms and division of property. We never hear about these divorces. When you add children into the situation, it can become a complicated process. Parents fight about custody, the visitation schedule and child support. And usually when children are involved the marriage is broken by infidelity. That is when the attorney reaches out to International Investigators, Inc. for assistance. In these cases, there is a good chance that one of the partners is hiding much more than being unfaithful. It could be money; it could be pornography or other addictions.
Let’s take a step-by-step process to determine exactly what is happening in a typical complicated divorce with children when one partner has found [...]
A very depressed-looking business owner came in for an appointment at International Investigators. We are accustomed to clients or prospective clients arriving emotionally charged, either very angry or hurt, but they don’t usually act like this gentleman.
Once talking, he explained that he was “darn near just ready to chuck it all in.” He said he was just confounded by what he knew was going on in his company. He just needed proof of it and confirmation of how deep the damage went.
Whew. He explained that because his company dealt with many clients coming in for training from out of town, he maintained an apartment for their use doing their stay. It was fully furnished and maintained. What he had discovered was that it had [...]
Sadly, statistics reveal that more and more couples in their 50s and 60s are ending their marriages. This is such a prevalent occurrence that it has now been dubbed “gray divorce.”
In many instances, the wife has spent the marriage as a stay-at-home mother, also providing emotional support for her professionally busy spouse. Very often, in gray divorce, the wife is the identified victim, suffering long-term post-divorce financial struggles. Many of the women in these divorce situations have limited work skills and limited education. Their ability to grab good-paying jobs after divorce is fairly non-existent. Lack of education and job experience work against them, as well as their age.
A level of naivety is also seen among women in their 50s and older. For most, if [...]
It’s not always at the divorce table that potentially ex-spouses try to hide money and assets from each other. No, at International Investigators we have learned that many married people have secret accounts and other financial activities that their spouse does not know about – sometimes even throughout the entire span of the marriage. Every marriage is different and each spouse is unique, so we don’t rule anything out.
In a divorce situation, attorneys generally pursue complete disclosure of the financial assets, but clients are forewarned to be proactive and expose any hidden money, locate hidden stocks or missing assets that should clearly be included in the deposition of assets in divorce.
Being aware of some of the methods and resources used by International Investigators, individual [...]
