Indeed, before the judgement , the private detective will be able to provide information on the standard of living and the financial means of the parent who will have to pay child support so that it is assessed fairly.
After the judgement the private detective will be able to collect information on the lifestyle, the financial resources and the needs of the parents for a possible reassessment of the child support amount one way or the other.
The private detective can therefore intervene at any time by carrying out field investigations or administrative investigations. The evidences collected are considered legal and may be added to the file for the family judge.
