How can hiring a Private Investigator help with my divorce / child custody case?
Choosing a Private Investigator
Just like family law lawyers, there are often a number of private investigators from which to choose. Alabama now requires PIs to be licensed (to testify etc.) When choosing a private investigator to hire – make sure you are asking them the right questions before hand. Some important considerations when choosing a private investigator are whether the PI is licensed, how long he or she has been in business, the type of services that the investigator provides, the training, education and experience that he or she has obtained and whether the private investigator agrees to testify in court.
Evidence of Adultery or Misconduct
A private investigator can investigate if a spouse is committing adultery or other types of marital misconduct. Every state has no-fault divorce laws that do not require the evidence of wrongdoing in order to grant a divorce. However, marital misconduct is sometimes relevant for proceedings involving spousal support in states in which support is barred if one party’s conduct led to the demise of the marriage. Additionally, marital misconduct may also help provide the judge with character info which could result in more favorable terms for a spouse. A P.I. Can help gather evidence for a spouse seeking a restraining order they can also provide the basis of pre-divorce relief, including custody matters, child support, spousal support and the payment of legal fees, in some cases.
