Alimony Investigations / Cohabitation Investigations
In attempt to reduce or eliminate spousal support, Cohabitation investigations goes hand in hand. A very popular option exercised in this instance is unmanned surveillance. We will place a covert camera with scheduled recording time to watch the residence in question. The camera can last up to 5 days and can easily be replaced with a fresh camera. Our recommendation from past experiences, is to document with video only during weekdays as weekends people naturally have visitors staying in the home.
Based in the heart of Lancaster, we are capable of taking in local cases to begin as soon as the next day. You will receive photographs, video footage, and a detailed report of the evidence gathered.
What Can We Do?
We have saved many of our clients thousands of dollars by providing evidence that can be used in court proving cohabitation. The laws on cohabitation are well established in Pennsylvania. Lawyers advise clients that if they cohabit after they have been divorced they will most likely not receive alimony.
What determines whether parties are cohabiting?
23 Pa.C.S.A. § 3706 provides that, "No Petitioner is entitled to receive an award of alimony where the Petitioner, subsequent to the divorce pursuant to which alimony is being sought, has entered into cohabitation with a person of the opposite sex who is not a member of the family of the Petitioner within the degrees of consanguinity."
