Being Proactive During a Private Investigation of Cohabitation

Cohabitation investigations are useful in many different situations. In many post-divorce settlements, alimony becomes an often expensive court ordered arrangement. However, cohabitation can affect or terminate the amount of alimony your former spouse receives. Additionally, if your ex-partner lives with an individual who poses a risk to your child, a cohabitation investigation can affect the custody decision.

From alimony payments to the safety of your children, investing in a cohabitation investigation can be a sound decision. But how can you be proactive during a cohabitation investigation? Keep reading to find out.


Actions I Can Take During an Investigation Period

There are several things you can do to be proactive during a cohabitation investigation. Each depends on if you are the one requesting the investigation or the one being investigated.

  • When You Request the Investigation: You should document any signs of cohabitation. That includes dates, times and witnesses who may be able to corroborate your claims. Surveillance, interviews with key people, financial audits and background checks are all going to be crucial components of your cohabitation investigation. (As a professional, a private investigator can collect this information for you; their official report and oral testimony are both admissible in court.)
  • When You Are the One Being Investigated: You should remember that your former partner may also request that you undergo an investigation. That means that all the things that may prove cohabitation for your partner will also apply to you. Do not move in with a new partner. Do not bring individuals with a criminal record into your children’s lives.

Why It’s Important to Choose the Right P.I. For My Case

One of the most proactive actions you can take is hiring a private investigator (P.I.). These licensed individuals have the knowledge, skill, and legal grounds to perform certain tasks that you would not find quite so easy.
