When two spouses divorce, they sign a legal agreement that makes certain stipulations. One of the most common of these stipulations is for one partner to make maintenance payments to the other, especially if the person receiving payments has primary custody of the couple’s children. This part of a divorce agreement often comes with certain conditions, with the most common one being that the recipient can’t live with someone else as a cohabiting couple. If you suspect that your ex is breaching this part of your agreement, our team at Fragale Investigations can provide cohabitation surveillance to help you get the evidence you need to take the matter to court. In this article, we’ll go over more about what cohabitation surveillance is and how it works so that you can decide if this service is right for you.
Essentially, cohabitation surveillance is a type of private investigation that is conducted with the goal of figuring out whether your ex has found a new partner and is now living with them as a couple. From a legal perspective, cohabitation is more than just living in the same space–the definition used in the state of North Carolina requires that the two parties to live together “continually, in a relationship similar to married people.” It’s this extra requirement that makes professional cohabitation surveillance necessary–only experienced investigators like our team at Fragale Investigations know how to gather definitive evidence on this aspect. To prove that your ex’s new relationship meets the requirements for cohabitation, we’ll look into things like whether they share their finances, whether they receive mail at the same address, whether they take vacations together, and more.
