Public Record Searches & Social Media Analyses
Knowledge of email addresses, home addresses, phone numbers, occupations, and relatives can prove useful during the first stages of a cohabitation investigation. Additionally, social media platforms offer countless opportunities for skilled private detectives to investigate alimony recipients through digital pictures, videos, posts, and comments.
Photo and video surveillance, along with garbage pulls, can provide incontrovertible evidence of cohabitation. Because private investigators are not “government actors,” they are not beholden to the fourth amendment stating that citizens be free from “Government Intrusion.” As a result, appropriate and legal search-and-seizure methods employed by Cowan can bring strong, admissible evidence to the table.
Intentional or Unintentional Admission of Cohabitation
Rarely do alimony beneficiaries openly admit that they are cohabiting with another person before or after a separation or divorce, but it can happen.
Unintentional admission can include:
- Accidentally revealing their cohabitation through word-of-mouth or text
- Changing permanent address or forwarding mail to the new partner’s residence
- Using the new partner’s phone number as their own
There is no true way to entirely prove cohabitation when the ex-spouse is dishonest about his or her living situation. However, a wholly legal private investigation by Cowan Investigations could be paramount to getting the evidence needed to obtain court permission to stop or reduce alimony payments.
