​Family Law Investigations in Colorado

When it comes to family law cases, having reliable and accurate information is crucial. This is where a private investigator can play a significant role. In Colorado, private investigators are often hired to assist with family law investigations. At Advanced Professional Investigations, we have experience in conducting comprehensive family law investigations in Colorado.

Private Investigators for Family Law Cases

Private investigators are often utilized in family law cases to gather critical information and evidence. This can include:

  • Surveillance: A private investigator can conduct surveillance to obtain powerful video documentation of an individual’s activities, such as co-habitation or protection order violations.
  • Background Investigations: Private investigators can conduct thorough background checks on individuals involved in a family law case, including the spouse, children, and other relevant parties.
  • Asset Searches: In cases involving divorce or child support, asset searches can be conducted by private investigators to locate hidden assets and determine an individual’s true financial situation.
  • Child Custody Investigations: Private investigators for family law cases can gather evidence related to a parent’s lifestyle, behavior, and home environment to assist in child custody cases.

Factual Information for Effective Legal Strategies

Emotions on the part of the client make a family law attorney’s job difficult in determining whether the concerns of the child regarding the other parent are being accurately described. However, concerns for safety and the overall well-being of the children are sometimes in question and need to be taken seriously. Advanced Professional Investigations will help you obtain information so you can best decide how to move forward with your family law case.

Parenting Time Surveillance and other investigations provide critical information that can prove invaluable. When preparing for mediation or child custody hearings, utilizing licensed professional investigators can provide the family law attorney with pertinent information such as neglect, child abuse, drug and alcohol-related problems, and established routines. Although there may not be evidence of alcohol or drug use during visitation time, is there a question of such in the hours before the child exchange? Are the children being left unattended? Video documentation via surveillance can be crucial to determine this. What are the children’s behaviors while they are spending time with that parent? Are they happy and seem content, or do they appear hesitant and fearful during their visitation? Are the children in a healthy, stable, and safe environment? That is the ultimate question.

Background Investigations – Who is spending time with the children? Are background checks on third party individuals spending time with the children warranted? We have had cases where new love interests or babysitters/nannies have had questionable backgrounds.

Besides parenting time, questionable employment that would be detrimental to the emotional or physical well-being of the children may need to be answered. Is the subject working at a bar and taking the children with them during their shift, for example?

Background investigations coupled with surveillance can be a powerful combination used to document and reveal questionable behaviors in an objective manner. This provides the family law attorney with necessary information to proceed in the best interest of their client.

Cyber Profile/Social Media Investigations – People are spending an ever-increasing amount of their time online. Accessing the internet used to be an occasional activity using a desktop computer, but is now readily open and available through mobile devices including cell phones. Social media activity, posts, photos, conversations, and status updates can provide valuable information about activities and the subject matter in your family law case. We are experts in finding and documenting this information.  Read More

Determination of Employment – Ensuring there is a proper support structure means a steady source of income.  Determination of employment can also help with child support. Surveillance comes into play when determining employment.  Are the subject(s) employed?  Are they claiming all of their income and assets?

Co-Habitation – Surveillance can assist in documenting cohabitation for cases where spousal support or maintenance is in question.

Anti-Stalking – When individuals have a need for services to identify, document and end stalking, there is no room for error. API has received calls from family law attorneys representing clients that, after years of abuse, have finally had the courage to leave the relationship and start proceedings for divorce. In some cases, the potential for escalation and struggle for control will be present. Disturbing behavior such as harassment, physical and electronic stalking through the use of texts, emails, and GPS tracking devices can manifest, and if left unchecked, can increase and end in disastrous consequences. Counter surveillance, security and other types of investigations can be beneficial for these issues. Has a restraining/protection order been placed on the ex-spouse, only to be violated? API provides consulting services and can incorporate surveillance, background investigations, locating hidden GPS tracking devices, interviews, and security assessments, providing the evidence needed to end this unwanted behavior.
