Hiring a private investigator for divorce
Divorce is a heart-wrenching and difficult process to have to go through. You’ve decided to get divorced for one or many reasons and you are now in a new world of choices which are difficult to make. Most people only get divorced once in their lives and it’s easy to understand how the process of divorce is difficult for people to understand.
The first step to getting a divorce is to talk with a competent divorce attorney and get advice on your next best steps to take. Your attorney will let you know what items or evidence you need to proceed with a divorce. If you say you believe your spouse is cheating, your attorney will most likely insist that you provide evidence of this claim. If you don’t have any hard facts or evidence, your attorney will likely recommend you hire a private investigator to gather this evidence on your behalf.
How can hiring a private investigator for divorce help you?
There are many areas where hiring a private investigator to work on your behalf in a divorce case can be of great benefit to you and your case. Some of these areas include:
- Documenting an affair – if your spouse is cheating on you, there’s no better way to prove this than to provide video evidence of the affair. Many times the prospect of seeing video evidence played in open court can cause the cheater to be far more negotiable. Private investigators use video evidence to prove an affair is happening and can testify to that evidence in a court of law if required to.
- Checking for hidden assets – often one party in a divorce will attempt to divert funds from one account to a hidden account you know nothing about. When this happens, it can be very difficult to track these funds. Private investigators have many ways to track hidden assets including property, bank accounts, vehicles, boats and even aircraft.
- GPS tracking – does your spouse have a drinking problem or drug addiction? Using the highly advanced technology in GPS trackers a private investigator can monitor and document the history of the tracker’s travels and develop patterns of activity. These patterns of activity can then be used to predict movement and allows the private investigator to then swoop in and get video evidence.
- Computer forensics – almost everyone uses a computer or a cell phone to communicate these days and you can be sure that your spouse uses one of these devices to either communicate with their lover or to log in to their bank accounts. When they’re communicating with their lover, they’ll often delete the evidence – or so they think. Private investigators who are trained in computer forensic tools and procedures can retrieve deleted data from computers, cell phones tablets and even from gaming systems. This kind of evidence is a gold mine in a divorce case.
As you can see, hiring a private investigator for divorce proceedings can be a game changer for you both mentally, and financially.
