Litigation is a difficult time for everyone involved, but if you’re trying to win a case a private detective may be a good investment. Investigative litigation detectives can help with criminal, civil, divorce, and child custody cases. Whether you’re trying to prove your innocence, get more out of your divorce, prove that your neighbour is in fact stealing plants from your garden, or want to prove that your ex-spouse makes more money than they claim, a private investigator can help you tie up all the loose ends and build a good case.
Most people will use a private detective in conjunction with a solicitor. Since solicitors often deal with a large number of clients at one time, using both a detective and a solicitor can help you build a case faster. A personal investigator will also have the time and resources to harvest information the solicitor may not have. Not every litigation situation calls for the use of a private investigator, but knowing that the option is available is helpful during tricky litigations.
A divorce trial is painful for both parties, and unless the divorce is amicable there’s often a lot of tension and fighting. In some situations a spouse wants a divorce because they suspect infidelity but can’t prove it with physical evidence. A private detective can often use surveillance strategies and technology tools to research your spouse’s past and see if there’s any evidence of an affair. This can help you in court proceedings, and will make your case stronger.
A personal investigator can also help substantiate claims of abuse or threatening behaviours. If a partner is trying to prove they want a divorce out of fear for their own safety, a detective can help locate threatening texts, emails, and phone calls, even if they’ve been erased.
Child Custody Litigation
Many divorce proceedings are followed up with a child custody 監聽 case. In some situation, one parent freely gives up their right to full custody. In most cases, parents have to go to court and fight for either custody or visitation. Once the custody issue is determined, the issue of child support must be resolved.
In order to determine who owes child support, the court often takes into consideration who has sole custody and who makes a larger income. Although it’s illegal, some ex-spouse’s will lie about their overall income to avoid paying too much in child support. If you know that your ex-spouse has more money coming in then reported, a private detective can help you build evidence and prove that your ex-spouse makes more money and should be paying more child support.
A Private Detective Can Help with a Civil Suit
The range of civil suits is large. You can sue someone for owed monies, to pay for damages to your home or car, or to pay for bills resulting from an injury due to their neglect. Before filing a civil suit you want to build up as much evidence as possible. A private detective can help you set up surveillance, track online records, and even provide photographic or video evidence. If needed, a detective can also act as a witness to help you win your case. While litigation is never fun, it can be successful if you build a strong case and have solid evidence.
