Hiring a Private Investigator in Family Law
Hiring a private Investigator in family law proceedings can help you gather evidence which can help you win your case. Family law proceedings can be expensive but the cost of a private investigator can be one of the most cost effective expenses you incur.
Here is some of the valuable evidence that can be obtained through engaging a private investigator.
Often parents believe that the other parent is either using drugs or selling them. This results in the parent exhibiting abnormal patterns of behaviour like driving to various places at odd times and meeting suspicious people in suspicious places. A private investigator can follow a person to obtain evidence which may be used to support the claim that the other parent is involved in criminal behaviour that can pose a serious risk to the children in family law proceedings.
It is regularly a concern of parents that the other parent may be using alcohol to excess. Engaging a private investigator can confirm if the other parent is drinking too much or visiting bars and clubs at times when they should be taking care of the children. This evidence can be put before the court to confirm that a child is at risk whilst in that parent’s care.
Sometimes parties to family law proceedings are not honest about where they are working or the amount they are earning. It is a regularly easy to task to confirm where a person is working and to prove the falsity of their declarations in court about their income. A private investigator can follow a person from their home to where they work on several occasions and provide this evidence in the form of a report to the Court.
