Maintenance & Cohabiting

  • Do you need evidence that your ex partner is working at present?
  • Has a spouse ceased making maintenance or child support payments?
  • Do you need your child monitored during access hours?
  • Are you looking for your ex partner's present address?
  • Do you need to prove that your ex partner is cohabiting?



As leading Private Investigators in Ireland we have been investigating maintenance cases for over 25 years, and have extensive experience in this specialised area of family law.

It is not unusual for an ex partner to cease making maintenance or child support payments without giving any notice or prior warning. They may claim that they are not working at present or that they are only employed on a part-time basis. There may be indications or suspicions to suggest that their claim is untrue.

The Private Investigators will carry out surveillance with a view to obtaining evidence that the subject is actively working. Having conclusive evidence of working activity can be invaluable in providing new information for court purposes.

Child Access/Supervision

In relation to child supervision a Private Investigator may be hired to monitor events that occur during access hours. This can happen where there is concern that the child is not being properly supervised or that they are being left in the company of persons not previously allocated by the courts.


In order to prove that an ex spouse is cohabiting the Private Investigators will carry out surveillance at an allocated address. A case for cohabiting is proven where the subject who is involved in an intimate relationship with a third party is living with that person at the same address over a minimum of five days a week.

Reduction of Maintenance

Evidence of cohabiting is also a good case for the reduction of maintenance. The Private Investigator will provide evidence that the person making the claim for maintenance is cohabiting with another party.

Legal Reports

A report is provided at the conclusion of a private investigation which is legal and binding and can be passed on to a solicitor if required.
