Duchovny & Leoni: Will Your California Divorce End Up Like Theirs?

David Duchovny and Tea Leoni are one of the most recent Hollywood couples to call it quits, but they are certainly not the first. The Los Angeles Times reported that the two famous actors had been hot and cold, separating in 2008 and again in 2011. Duchovny officially filed for divorce in June. They were able to arrange shared child custody, but the Times reported that Duchovny will have to pay nearly $50,000 per month in spousal and child support costs.

Marriage is always a fragile relationship. People grow apart from each other as their motivations and goals in life change. While Duchovny and Leoni's marriage ended in a relatively calm fashion, this is not always the case for other kinds of divorce in Los Angeles. If you are going through a California divorce or think that you will be soon, one of the smartest things that you can do is to hire a private investigator to help support you in the courtroom.

How Does A Private Investigator Help in a California Divorce?

You may be asking yourself why you would need a private investigator for a divorce. Believe it or not, a Los Angeles private investigator can be one of the most valuable assets for someone that is going through a divorce.

How exactly does a private investigator work to help people going through divorce? There are several critical things that an investigator can do to help with your case:

  • Surveillance services: do you suspect that your spouse has been cheating on you? A quality private investigator knows exactly how and where to catch cheaters and will also be able to document this evidence properly to make sure that it is presented in the proper way. If joint money has been used to pay for dates, hotel rooms, trips, gifts, etc., financial infidelity can mean money back in your pocket since half of the money spent on those items is your in a community property state like California.
  • Background checks: there is a chance that your spouse might have a criminal history that could have an impact on areas of the divorce such as child custody and visitation rights. Or, you may be concerned with the company your ex-spouse is keeping and the effect of those influences on your children. Child custody private investigators can help you get tot the bottom of things by providing you with a comprehensive report on the criminal records of your spouse, their family members, significant others, etc.
  • Asset search: an asset search is especially important for those going through a divorce who want to make sure they get fair judgment when it comes to alimony and support payments. When a private investigator gives you a comprehensive asset search, you will have a much better idea of what you are entitled to after you and your spouse have officially split up.

Private investigators also make a strong witness in a divorce case: they understand how to present themselves and the evidence that they have collected to give their clients the best possible chance of finding success in their case.

Can You Afford Not To Hire A Private Investigator?

It is nice to think that your divorce will end amicably. Unfortunately, this just isn't the case for many divorces in Los Angeles and Orange County. If you are looking for a private investigator to help with a divorce in Long Beach, Palmdale, or Torrance, be sure that you hire a Los Angeles private investigator who is experienced in California divorce and child custody proceedings. Give them all of the necessary information to help you get the kind of divorce that will leave you financially and emotionally well off so that you can continue on with the next chapter of your life.
