Domestic Relations / Fidelity Checks - Infidelity is a violation of a couple's assumed or stated contract regarding emotional and/or sexual exclusivity. Other scholars define infidelity as a violation according to the subjective feeling that one's partner has violated a set of rules or relationship norms; this violation results in feelings of sexual jealousy and rivalry. What constitutes an act of infidelity depends upon the exclusivity expectations within the relationship.

A missing heir is a person related to a decedent (dead person), or testator of a will, but whose residence, domicile, Post office, or other address is not known. A missing heir may be an orphan or other person under a disability, who may need a guardian or custodian of funds.

Post conviction. In law, post-conviction refers to the legal process which takes place after a trial results in conviction of the defendant. After conviction, a court will proceed with sentencing the guilty party.


Family Law Investigation

In the course of an at-fault divorce or child custody battle, private and personal family matters may be revealed. When it comes to legal proceedings, evidence is needed to prove one's case. This is where a family law investigator can help. These private eyes are hired to procure evidence to back up a spouse's claims in court. Family law investigators can consult with divorce attorneys to determine what specific evidence is necessary to prove a given case.

Child Custody Investigation

Not to be confused with a court-ordered child custody evaluation, in some cases one parent may hire an investigator to gather evidence to demonstrate that the parent with custody is unfit. Conditions that might render a parent unfit include physical or mental abuse, drug addiction, alcoholism, and exposing children to danger or an unhealthy environment. Once a child custody private eye has accumulated sufficient evidence, a parent can petition to care for the children.An experienced divorce detective can catch cheating spouses. .
