A Word About GPS Tracking

It would be a great thing if you could just tracker your spouse to find out where they are going, or your ex, or even your child to find out where they are going when you are not around. Not so fast…. You may be hurting your case more than helping it. Judges HATE when parents tracker kids in custody cases. Let me repeat, Judges HATE when parents tracker kids in custody cases.

I enlisted Cindi's help because my husband had alerted me to a strange vehicle that would park across the street in the neighbor's circular driveway. The car...

Why Your Investigations Team is as Important as Your Divorce Lawyer

Everyone knows you need a lawyer if you’re getting divorced. Even the most amicable splits usually require someone to guide the process. Unfortunately, most divorces are not amicable. Divorce and child custody issues are extremely stressful, with the potential for lots of mudslinging.
