Cordano to be by your side when you need a skilled and experienced Salt Lake City divorce attorney. Her firm will leverage the services of a private investigator when necessary to help establish the evidence in your case.
The role of a private investigator in a divorce case
There are various reasons a person may need to use a private investigator in a divorce case:
- To uncover proof that a spouse is cheating.
- To discover assets that the other spouse may be hiding.
- To uncover the other spouse engaging in illegal activity that could affect child custody. This could include alcohol or drug abuse.
Private investigators are trained to uncover this type of information. In many cases, they will pose undercover to learn more about the person they are investigating. These cases may involve following the other spouse for days or weeks at a time.
Commonly, a private investigator will work to gain access to your spouse’s social media postings and/or alternative social media accounts. This could include dating profiles that your spouse may be using to conduct extramarital affairs.
Is a private investigator necessary?
A private investigator is not necessary in all cases. Often, evidence of an affair or illegal activity is already known, and there is no need to search for proof. However, if there is any doubt as to what is going on, a private investigator can provide the evidence that Emy Cordano can take to court and use on your behalf.
Private investigators are a tool that can be used to protect you and your children during the divorce process. Even after the divorce is finalized, a private investigator can help you and your attorney gather information when modifications to child custody or spousal support are necessary.
A private investigator is likely a must in a divorce modification matter involving alimony violations. A private investigator is used to prove the ex-spouse receiving alimony is cohabiting and in an intimate relationship – which in Utah may be grounds for the termination of alimony.
