How Do Private Investigators Impact Divorce Cases?

Regardless of how amicable a divorce may be, emotions can run high as hard-earned assets and parenting time is at stake. The dissolution of a marriage involves untangling shared lives. In Connecticut, couples can pursue a no-fault divorce or a fault-based divorce. A no-fault divorce is granted when there’s an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage with no hope of reconciliation. On the other hand, a fault-based divorce is granted when one of the spouses blames the other for the demise of the union. Whether a divorce is based on fault or not, one spouse may attempt to hide information pertinent to the divorce circumstances that could make a significant difference in the outcome of the case. When one spouse conceals information during divorce proceedings, it can lead to an unfair divorce settlement. Therefore, during this challenging time, it’s crucial to enlist the help of our seasoned Connecticut Private Investigator for Lawyers, who can provide you with essential evidence to help you achieve favorable results for your clients. 

How Does Information Gathered By Private Investigators Impact Divorce Cases?

To ensure your client’s rights and interests are safeguarded while navigating the complexities of a divorce, it’s crucial to seek the assistance of a skilled private investigator. Private investigators will employ discreet surveillance techniques to track your spouse’s activities. They will gather photographic and video evidence of any wrongdoing. This may include engaging in extramarital affairs or hiding assets. Private investigators are equipped to conduct digital forensics to examine phone records, emails, and even social media accounts. They can also conduct thorough background checks to gather information that could be useful. Any evidence obtained through a private investigation is admissible in court, as private investigators in Connecticut operate under stringent rules to ensure their findings are obtained legally and ethically. This means private investigators respect privacy laws and ensure they don’t break legal boundaries.

In Connecticut, judges must weigh and consider all relevant factors of a divorce. This includes whether one spouse has been unfaithful during the marriage. Adultery can have a significant impact on the outcome of divorce proceedings. While Connecticut is technically a “no-fault” state, evidence of infidelity can still impact negotiations. This is especially true if a spouse can prove that marital assets were used in the affair. Infidelity can affect alimony payments and property division. In addition to infidelity, private investigators can also uncover any financial discrepancies.
