    One of our most common requests in Austin and San Antonio is to determine if a spouse is violating a court order forbidding them from having an overnight guest of the opposite sex when separated, while the children are present. Family law professionals all know that this kind of misbehavior is awful for children to deal with and that a judge will likely be unforgiving (usually with or without an actual court order that specifically forbids it). Expect a similar result if a spouse is found drinking with the kids in the car. – you win your case and likely your ex-spouse will have limited access to the children, not to mention that it is also a criminal offense.

    I love what you said about technology being an investigative focus tool. Hiring a reliable private investigator is a good option for a variety of reasons. If I were to require such services, I would look for a private investigator with a stunning reputation.

    I like how you said that surveillance can be used in family law not only in cases of infidelity, but also in child custody matters. My sister has joint custody or her kids but is worried that they’re not being treated well when they stay with her ex. I’m glad I read your article because now I can talk to her and suggest she hire a private investigator.
