Lawyers are increasingly using content from social media and other electronic communication as evidence in divorce cases. Therefore, it is important not only to protect yourself by limiting what you communicate on social media while you are going through a divorce, but also to ensure your lawyer exploits whatever information your ex-spouse is indiscreetly making available over their social media channels.
More and more it is possible to use such information to support allegations of hidden assets, substance abuse, illicit affairs and the like. These revelations can have serious impacts on decisions from everything from child custody to alimony payments and settlement amounts.

The experience of having a missing friend or a family can be disturbingly distressing. It is understandable to be troubled especially if you shared a close bond with the person that has disappeared. However, panicking in the face of this ordeal will not help the missing person.

A divorce is never easy, and the process can take its toll on everyone involved. However, no matter how high the stress levels get, it's important that you take the steps needed to ensure that you get the best possible outcome from the divorce itself.
That's not always simple, and in many instances you might need some help. A good private investigator may be just what you need to help ensure that your rights and interests are protected during the divorce proceedings. Here are some of the services that Radius Investigations can provide you with.

Divorce proceedings where young children are involved are especially sensitive, given the high priority on preserving the children’s well-being. Far too frequently, however, the non-custodial parent may fall behind on or entirely discontinue support payments. For the custodial parent who needs the financial support to maintain a household and properly raise the children, this can feel like an overwhelming challenge.
How Can a Private Investigator Help Enforce Continuation of Child Support Payments?
When non-custodial child support has lapsed, many custodial parents will turn to a Private Investigator in order to help remedy the situation. This can often follow one of 3 courses of action.
Location of the absent parent
Lack of support payments can mean that the non-custodial parent is voluntarily missing in order to avoid his/her financial responsibility. In these cases, a Private Investigator can be employed to locate that individual, and once located, the custodial parent can then proceed with legal action to compel the continuation of child support.
Verification of employment or income
There are other situations where the non-custodial parent may be accessible but may claim that they have insufficient funds to meet their responsibilities. A private investigator can help to verify the non-custodial parent’s employment and provide circumstantial evidence of his/her income by collecting evidence and analyzing the non-custodial parent’s lifestyle. These details can then be used to assess whether the non-custodial parent is being truthful regarding his/her financial situation.

Location of Assets
In addition, where the non-custodial parent claims that he/she has insufficient assets to support the award of child support, a Private Investigator can be employed to uncover hidden assets and provide evidence as to the ability to provide support.

Regardless of the cause of non-payment, custodial parents should take action to protect their rights and the rights and welfare of the children. The resources and skills of a Private Investigator can be of great assistance in obtaining the evidence and/or information crucial to preserving those rights.
