Private Investigator in Minneapolis

It is important for you to know that Minnesota state law states that all private investigators working in Minneapolis or elsewhere in the state must obtain a private investigator license issued by the Department of Public Safety Private Detective & Protective Agent Services Board.  As a part of the licensing requirements for Minneapolis private investigators, applicants must complete mandatory training, submit to a background check, and pay the requested licensing fees.  All Minnesota private investigators need to renew their license every 2 years to ensure that they remain eligible for license and are current on all training modules.  All ICS Minneapolis private investigators meet or exceed state requirements for licensing.

All private investigators in Minnesota are required to hold a private investigator’s license, which means that it is illegal to work as a private investigator in Minneapolis without the proper license issued by the Department of Public Safety Private Detective and Protective Agent Services Board.  Do not be tricked into hiring an unlicensed investigator; always check your investigator’s licensure status before moving forward with the investigation.  ICS is serious about licensing requirements, which is why we only hire licensed, experienced, and professional private investigators to work in Minneapolis.  All ICS Minneapolis private investigators are current on continuing education requirements and licensing expectations, which is why we are able to consistently provide superior investigative services.

Adultery, Infidelity, or Cheating Spouse Investigations

Being the victim of an affair is never easy, and continuously wondering if your spouse or partner is cheating can distract you and interfere with important life decisions.  If you have noticed any of these common signs of cheating in your partner, call ICS right away to begin your investigation: excessive or secretive computer use, hiding of cell phone and personal finances, working uncharacteristically late or going on business trips at the last minute, lack of, or a sudden increase in sexual appetite, being diagnosed with an STD (even STDs with long incubation periods should be considered suspicious), abnormal activity on the home phone like hang ups when you answer or hang-ups after a specific number of rings, or claiming that a wedding ring has been lost or stolen.  These are not the only signs of cheating, so if you do not see these specific traits, but still fear that your spouse or partner is being unfaithful, call ICS for your free consultation and learn more about how a private investigator can catch a cheater in the act.

If your investigation reveals an extra-marital affair, you may be wish to take steps towards a divorce.  In the state of Minneapolis, a divorce will be granted if one or both members of the marriage can prove that the marriage is irretrievably broken.  It is common for Minneapolis judges to require a one-year separation prior to approving a divorce, but this requirement can be waived in the instance of an egregious offense against the marriage, such as an affair.  If you suspect that your spouse in cheating and you want to catch them in the act, let an experienced Minneapolis private investigator from ICS accumulate the proof you need to ensure that the evidence collected is viable in court. Adultery is extremely painful no matter the circumstances, and the last thing you want to do is draw out the ordeal. ICS understands the damage that an affair can do, which is why we handle all adultery and infidelity cases with the highest level professionalism and discretion, getting the evidence you need with the least amount of discomfort or inconvenience.

Minnesota is an equitable distribution state, which means that in case of a divorce, a judge will divide all assets and debts in an equitable manner. In legal terms, equitable means fair, not equal.  If you are seeking a divorce after an affair, the terms of the affair can weigh heavily in the distribution of assets and debts, which is why it is so important to have a thorough investigation conducted at the first signs of an extra marital affair. A private investigation by ICS can help you find out how much money your spouse spent on their affair, how long the affair lasted and how many other relationships they were maintaining, and other information that can prove vital in property distribution during a divorce.  Begin your timely and confidential investigation today by contacting ICS over the phone or via the online form to start your free consultation.

Even if you are not married, an infidelity investigation can prove extremely beneficial if you have any doubts at all about your partner’s faithfulness.  If you have been in a long term, exclusive relationship, you deserve to know the truth about your partner.  ICS is ready to help you get the information you need by providing an accurate, affordable, and confidential investigation.

Child Custody, Support, and Visitation Investigations

Determining child custody is never easy, and can become complicated when the parents do not agree on the custody arrangements.  The number one goal of any child custody, support, or visitation hearing is always to ensure the safety of the children involved, but unfortunately the parents are not always able to decide amongst themselves who is able to provide the best environment for children.  In the state of Minnesota, child custody, support, and visitation cases are handled by either the Family Court if custody is being determined after a divorce, or by the Juvenile Court if the custody is being determined or changed following abuse or any action investigated by Child Protection Services (CPS).  If you are fighting to obtain or change your child custody, visitation, or support arrangements, you may need a private investigator to obtain certain evidence regarding the financial and habitation situation of both you and the other parent.  This information can be difficult or impossible to obtain on your own, and improperly collected evidence may not be viable in court.  Parents may be tempted to lie about their living arrangements, current partners, finances, or criminal or abuse history, and it can be harder to prove the truth than it might seem. Let the experienced and professional private investigators at ICS assist you in this crucial step of your Minnesota child custody case and make sure you child ends up in the best possible living arrangement.
