Hidden Living Arrangements

What if you were going through the financial arrangements of a divorce, and your ex-partner was hiding substantial assets? What if your ex-partner had a new partner and was in fact now residing with him or her without telling you in order to favour his or her side of the divorce settlement? This is a very common occurrence due to the fact that everyone wants to be better off once a divorce is done a dusted. This is where a cohabitation investigation is absolutely necessary, and evidence is required to prove such instances. The courts try to make divorce settlements as fair and as reasonable as possible for both sides involved. However, there are many factors to take into consideration. When one side is hiding valuable assets or living arrangements, it can hugely affect the outcome of a settlement.

Divorce Settlements

If you your ex-partner is claiming that he or she requires 50% (for example) of the settlement to cover all future costs (including a place to live), but withheld the fact that he or she was now living with someone who is also paying towards rent, food, utilities, council tax etc, then a 50% cut of a divorce settlement could be deemed unreasonable. It is a common deceptive practice for ex partners to cover up new joint living arrangements, as he or she will not want to reduce the percentage of the settlement.

Evidence Gathering
Asset Trace Investigations Birmingham

Evidencing cohabitation requires a third party to provide the proof (private investigator Birmingham), as it could be deemed a conflict of interest. Through means of covert surveillance, Sentry Investigations provide video and photographic imagery, backed up with detailed reports and precise timings to correlate our findings. If cohabitation is taking place during divorce proceedings, our investigations paint a clear picture of an ex-partners new living arrangements and potentially uncover other assets being hidden.


The concealment of assets is also a very common practice during divorce proceedings, especially when high value items are involved. A partner may own additional properties that you were potentially unaware of. The same goes for items such as vehicles, jewellery, land etc. You have an entitlement to a percentage of such items but you will need to be aware of them. You may be completely unaware of possessions such as these, but our investigations can quickly bring them to light.
