For those of us who have been divorced, we understand the process and procedures. We know that we either represent ourselves (which could create problems during and after the divorce) or we retain the services of a reputable law firm (which prevents the pro-se issues). We enter into a marriage full of hope and dreams and unfortunately, we are only in control of half of that relationship. We enter into a divorce with the expectation to right the wrongs and in many cases, there are activities that need to be investigated. The he/said she/said of the relationship holds little weight in court. Documented behavior and actions are required. Not all divorces are complicated, but in relationships that end due to deceit, hiring an investigative [...]
In the midst of their custody battle, both Jill and Henry blamed each other for the breakdown of the marriage. Neither would agree to move out of the marital residence and neither wanted to spend less time with their kids.
Our objective was not to decide who was at fault, but who would be the better parent to be awarded custodial custody. It was quite obvious joint custody for these two was out of the question. There was entirely too much animosity between them. There were implications of a cheating spouse, marital infidelity, hidden cameras, GPS Tracking Systems, eavesdropping devices and audio or video surveillance equipment being installed in the marital residence and personal vehicles. The only common ground this couple shared were their two [...]
When the topic of infidelity comes up, almost without pause, people think marital infidelity. Cheating wives. Cheating husbands. But, in reality, the potential for a cheating boyfriend or cheating girlfriend is just as, or more, likely. Perhaps it is because there is less of a commitment, less of a financial investment that secret affairs are really less discreet affairs.
Relationships between a boyfriend and a girlfriend can be as long-lasting and as intense as a marriage – and as difficult to break as a marriage. We know from experience here at International Investigators that these breakups can be as contentious as the most hostile divorce.
It’s not uncommon for our digital forensics and the cell phone hack detection or spyware detector services on computers to center [...]
When you think about the various ways that some people lie, cheat and steal, certain activities make you immediately decide that a private investigator should be involved. Two examples …
When one spouse sees signs of infidelity and suspects an extramarital affair, most of us think about a private investigator.
We also think about hiring a private investigator when a business owner suspects his employee of faking a job-related injury and committing workers compensation fraud.
But the client base at International Investigators continues to broaden. We are not limited to certain scenarios where private investigators would be suggested. And so, when a well known company for designer sunglasses suspected a black market traitor in their midst, they contacted the police. But they also hired private [...]
A disgruntled employee or maybe an ex-spouse posts a pornographic photograph on the web and claims that you are the person in that photo. Immediately, you begin to suffer the consequences of this vicious action. Something of this nature will of course negatively affect your professional life as well as your personal relationships. But how can you possibly fight back and clear your name?
If these actions were taken on computers in your company or in your home, where you and your spouse both accessed them and you have ownership, the good news is that you have the opportunity to find the evidence you need to clear your name. Instead of immediately contacting police and waiting, your other, faster option is to contact a [...]
When Kimberly contacted International Investigators, she tearfully explained that she was very sure that her husband was having an affair. At first she thought, “I’ll just follow my husband,” but after a few days of the cloak and dagger, she saw she didn’t have the time or experience to do it right. And, if she did uncover more signs of infidelity, what would she do with them?
Kim and her husband resided on a 1,200-acre farm. They were surrounded by flat, open land. There was no way for a member of the International Investigators team to conduct surveillance without being easily detected. After all, if Kim’s husband was indeed a guilty guy, guilty guys constantly look over their shoulder.
In addition to the extramarital affair, Kim [...]
With half of all marriages in America ending in divorce, it won’t surprise you, I’m sure, to learn that in 65% of marriages, there is a cheating spouse – either currently involved in an extramarital affair or been involved in marriage infidelity in the past.
In many instances, even when you feel you have evidence to prove yourself 100% correct in your suspicions, cheating spouses may vehemently deny the allegations. If you have been together for a long time and share children and deep family ties, it’s very difficult to walk out on a whim.
Don’t agonize and worry. Don’t try to second guess what is or isn’t going on when you talk to your attorney. International Investigators has been in the business of private investigations [...]
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.
