Hiring a private investigator during divorce.
So you and your partner, lover, spouse have decided to get a divorce. You’ve been married for a while and things just aren’t working out between you. You quarrel a lot, and you don’t get each other’s jokes anymore. You’ve decided divorce is the best path for you both and you’ve both hired an attorney to represent you. You might also consider hiring a private investigator during divorce.
In the back of your mind there’s a nagging feeling. You think that maybe your spouse is up to no good. Maybe they’re seeing someone behind your back. You want to find out if that’s the cause of the divorce and you want to know for sure before moving on with your life. You think of hiring a private investigator during your divorce.
This is a very valid thought process but not one that should be taken lightly. There are several things you should consider before you decide to hire a private investigator during divorce. Here are some tips:
- You should consult with your attorney – ask your attorney whether it’s worthwhile to spend the money on hiring a private investigator. Your attorney may well tell you that the court doesn’t care about any affairs. Your attorney may also tell you that your particular situation doesn’t make sense to hire a private investigator. Your attorney may tell you that it will make no difference in your divorce. This is information you should know. It will cost money to hire a private investigator and if the evidence they find is of no use to you, why spend the money?
- Ask yourself if you really want to know – if you’ve already headed down the road of divorce, do you really care anymore? Is it worth the worry and expense to gather evidence that’s not of much use to you? Couldn’t you spend the money on something fun? Or take your kids on a fun trip somewhere, instead of spending it on a private investigator. These may seem like strange things for a private investigator to say, but it’s the truth.
- Can you afford a private investigator – hiring a private investigator during divorce can add unexpected expense to your divorce. Divorces aren’t cheap to start with and it might take the private investigator several attempts to catch your ex in the action of an affair. All these attempts cost money and this may be money you need to pay your attorney, or other bills such as a mortgage payment.
It’s definitely possible to hire a private investigator during divorce but it may not be the wisest move. You should listen to your attorney’s advice in this regard as they will tell you whether or not it’s actually worth your while. You always want to listen to the advice your lawyer gives you when going through a divorce and only if they say so should you thing about hiring a private investigator during divorce.
