Anytime you are going through a divorce, it’s definitely a stressful time for all involved. The stress is only worse when you have children or other dependents involved in the process. It can leave you feeling helpless as you work to separate your lives that have been entwined for so long. Sometimes, divorce can be messy with one side or the other not wanting to play fair. In this case, you may want to call on a private investigator to help strengthen your case. Kolbach Associates & Investigations is here to talk about how a PI can help strengthen your divorce case.
Do Divorce Lawyers Hire Private Investigators?
There are many ways that a PI can help you in your divorce case. When you are in the thick of a divorce, you need all the help you can get to make sure everything is done fairly. Here are some of the ways you can rely on a PI to help you gather the evidence you need.
– Gather Evidence of Allegations: There are several different reasons a couple may choose to get divorced. Maybe there was infidelity, abuse (emotional or physical), sexual dysfunction or other reasons you have chosen to part ways. In all of these cases, a judge will be looking for evidence as to who is at fault. A PI can help you gather the evidence you need to plead your case.
– Obtain Child Support: When there are kids involved and child support that needs to be paid, often, the other spouse will try to hide assets and other information needed to determine how much child support they owe. Using surveillance and financial analysis, a PI can ensure that your spouse isn’t hiding anything. This will help make sure there isn’t money owed to the other spouse to help support the kids caught in the middle.
– Determining Child Custody: If there is a reason that one of parents in the divorce shouldn’t have custody of the children because of safety issues, a PI can help gather the evidence needed to prove it. Maybe there are drugs and alcohol involved or a past of abuse. Whatever is there can be uncovered to ensure the children are in safe hands by the end of the process.
– Searching for Assets: It is fairly rare that both spouses come to an agreement when it comes to assets and liabilities during a divorce. Whether it is the house, a business or inheritances, a PI can use several different resources to uncover any assets that the other spouse is trying to hide.
