Our professional private investigation agency has years of experience in domestic investigations including:

Child Custody Investigations

Child custody cases in domestic relations can be contentious. Information about the other parent can define or alter custody arrangements in the best interest of the child(ren). Shinkowsky Investigations’ private investigators often conduct surveillance to ensure that the child is safe and free from abuse, neglect, negligent conduct, and other unsafe situations which could be brought on by the other parent or guardian. Our investigators conduct legal and ethical investigations so that the evidence obtained is admissible and will hold up in court.

Cohabitation Investigations

When spouses file for divorce, alimony is often contested by one or both of them. Alimony is dependent on many factors, however, there is one factor that is always an issue which is financial stability. Cohabitation investigations are used when alimony is an issue and one spouse is being asked to pay for the other’s support – even when the other is cohabitating with another person. Our domestic investigators will uncover the evidence necessary to ensure that you are not being taken advantage of.

Infidelity Investigations

Infidelity and divorce is often a reason for individuals to hire a domestic investigator. Marital investigations are handled by our professionals who can provide a suspicious spouse with the evidence needed to prove infidelity. We employ professional, discreet methods of surveillance to perform the necessary investigative work without alerting others about the investigation. In cases of divorce, domestic investigators may be called upon to find evidence that will be used against a spouse in divorce proceedings, such as evidence of gambling, cheating (infidelity), illegal drug usage, gambling, or other behaviors disruptive to the marriage.

A question we are often asked is:

How do I know if my spouse is cheating on me?
