California is a “No Fault” state when it comes to divorce, however, costly legal issues still arise that can impact you the rest of your life.
Prevailing in a divorce or child custody case is largely about discovering and obtaining relevant facts in a form that is compelling to the court and ADMISSIBLE in court. It is not enough to state innuendo, or "everyone knows this" or otherwise use conjecture to establish a fact. Facts are established by witnesses, documents and various forms of evidence.
First you need to retain a very good, specialized licensed investigator. When making this choice, take into consideration California does not have pre-license educational requirements for private investigator applicants, nor does the state require continuing education once licensed. A very small fraction of the state licensed P.I.s have formal education in litigation, leaving the majority of P.I.s clueless when it comes to knowledge of the elements of a legal issue.
What does this mean to you? At the very least, possibly wasted time and money on a worthless, aimless investigation. On the other hand, it could mean an adverse legal decision that could impact you the rest of your life and worse, the possibility of exposure to civil liability for the tortious acts of an untrained investigator.
Any private investigator can be used to determine if adultery exists ... that's a no brainer. However, in litigation, you need a trained licensed investigator specializing in Family Law matters. A specialized Family Law investigator can be invaluable in complex matters such as child custody and visitation cases, contempt cases, on the issue of finding hidden property, and in support cases when it becomes necessary to track someone who is lying about their employment and income.
