Divorce Case Causes and How Private Investigators Can Help


Infidelity is one of the most common reasons for divorce in the UK. Although divorces are now ‘no fault’ and you won’t need evidence of infidelity for the court, you will need hard evidence for yourself. It can be difficult to prove without the help of a private investigator. A private investigator can conduct surveillance and gather evidence such as photographs or video footage of an affair or of living arrangements to help with financial settlements. This evidence can be used to support a divorce case. As well, it can also help individuals to make informed decisions about the future of their relationship.


In addition to infidelity, private investigators can also help to trace hidden assets during a divorce. It is not uncommon for one spouse to hide assets during divorce proceedings in an attempt to keep them out of the settlement. A private investigator can use a range of techniques, such as financial analysis and surveillance, to locate these assets. This ensures that they are included in the settlement.


Private investigators can also provide testimony in court to support a court case. This can be particularly useful if one spouse is disputing the evidence presented by the other. A private investigator can present their findings in court and provide expert testimony to support the evidence, helping to strengthen the case.
