It’s hard to choose a family law attorney out of thousands in Orange County. I’m in the unique position of having personally worked with many (if not most) local Orange County lawyers – on both sides. And I’m happy to provide referrals.
So you’re ready to walk down the aisle with the love of your life. But have you done all your homework?
By and large, these divorces are usually a direct result of one or more of three things: infidelity, substance abuse, and/or money problems.
Here I’ll explain two easy things you can do before marriage to save yourself from these problems.
Last week we received quite a few calls regarding adoption searches and reunions. This is a frustrating segment of the private investigative business, as leads are usually thin and relevant information almost non-existent.
Still our staff tries to prevail under some very difficult circumstances. They know we are often the last hope for our clien
During the 2015 holidays, I was asked to locate a young man named Michael and try to get him help for his addiction problems. I initially turned down the case, but the boy’s grandfather persuaded me otherwise. His plea was enhanced by showing me a photo of the 16-year old in a football uniform. The football uniform was from the same high school my son graduated. It seemed like it was meant to be.
In September 2016, I received a call from Michael on my cell phone. He was doing well and had been sober for nine months. He wanted to go to lunch when he returned from another state where he was in rehab. I reminded him it was his turn to buy since I had treated him at McDonald’s the day he was found. He laughed but politely agreed.
Among the explosion of headlines about the Angelina Jolie / Brad Pitt divorce, some reports are claiming Jolie had hired a private investigator to uncover evidence that her husband was cheating on her with recent co-star Marion Cotillard. The French movie star issued a strong public denial of any affair and took the opportunity to announce that she was pregnant by her long-time partner to boot.
Given the state of personal electronics, one could easily argue that full-scale surveillance is simply not needed. Cell phone records, texts, email, calendars, appointments… cheaters carelessly give up the game easily.
There will always be a need for old-fashioned full-scale stakeouts. In a world where there is no shortage of high-stakes, big-bucks divorce, providing court-admissible proof of infidelity is a job that will never fully become obsolete.
An update to a previous post about Dylan, an emotionally-troubled teen that was subjected to unspeakable abuses at the hand of his mother, born with short stature syndrome and treated with HGH for 10 years, he had severe dental problems as a result of medications and his teeth were literally rotting.
When you have child addicted to heroin, sometimes there is very little you can actually do about it. It’s hard to find a way to get through to them in time.
From my chair as a private investigator, we receive calls daily from senior citizens that want to engage our services to help them resolve abusive issues they are going through: physical, sexual, emotional and financial. I’ve found that the matters that involve money are more common than the others combined.
The key to avoiding senior abuse is communication. You want to check in with them. Even if you live far away, or in a distant state. Here’s how.
Every day, one of our five offices gets a call from a parent who wants us to help them with their troubled teenager that has behavioral issues or problems or with drugs and alcohol. The parents are at their wit’s end and simply don’t know what do to. Fortunately, we do.
I have lectured about this subject, and I’ve written extensively about it. And just when I thought I’d heard it all, up pops 18 year-old Nicholas M. Fuhst with a hair-brained idea for his local Hooters.
Fuhst recently decided to enter a Hooters in Kochville, Michigan and announce he was an “undercover cop.” This is funny to me, because he clearly doesn’t the concept of “undercover”. Having worked as an undercover Drug Enforcement Administration agent for many years, I don’t recall ever announcing to the bad guys that I was working undercover.
This week we completed a case which involved locating a veteran of the U.S. armed forces that was addicted to heroin. (This is actually the 16th of similar cases like this so far in 2016.) The case was successful – meaning we got the person into detox and then into a rehabilitation program. We have found many more, but the lure of the drugs is too powerful for some to stop. They remain on the street chasing powder.
