In this day in age, child support orders are becoming more and more ineffective. The issue doe not revolve around collections, like most people tend to believe, but is instead an issue of intelligence gathering. In order for the courts to render a child support judgment, they assess a variety of factors about the debtor’s lifestyle, employment and assets. The problem is the courts inability to identify these factors properly. The legal system does not have the ample resources to seek out the specifics of every case, including gaining access to information about bank accounts, employment, vehicles and properties. The unfortunate result is that child support orders are often severely undervalued.

There is no point is attributing blame towards the Family Responsibility Office (FRO), as they run into the same difficulties as any struggling parent trying to collect child support. The FRO send’s letters, make phone calls and manage payment systems for the debotors that actually pay their support. They do their best in their collection efforts, but do not have the resources to gather the proper intelligence. Without this investigative ability, they are unable to get an accurate picture of the debtor’s assets, employment, bank accounts, and properties so that they can collect an equitable amount.

The truth of that matter is that when it comes to child support issues, you are on your own and it’s an investigative task and not a collection task. The courts and the FRO do not have access to any bank account information nor have the ability to obtain the important information you need to collect on your child support order. It is an investigative mission that the government agencies won’t be doing for you.

In your child support investigation, here are your three primary responsibilities:

  • Finding a Bank Account – You are expected to find a bank account with money in it, without the aid of any bank or government institution. You must identify the bank and the actual bank branch where you think the debtor might have an account. For the average person, this is a nearly impossible task. How can you be expected to identify the specific bank account of a debtor without institutional support from government or financial bodies? The banks certainly won’t give out this information due to security and confidentiality issues. Another issue central to bank account identification is, what if the debtor gets paid in cash and doesn’t deposit their money into a financial institution or claim their income to the Canadian Revenue Agency? Or what if they have a joint account, and the account is in another person’s name?
  • Finding Property, such as Land, House or Vehicle – In most provinces, it is not possible to input a debtor’s name into a computerized database to uncover their assets. Even if this were possible, very few child support debtors put property in their own name, often putting vehicles, land or property in another person’s name to avoid government/child support detection.
  • Finding Employment – You may think that it is easy to uncover the employment of your debtor by talking to friends, relatives, or co-workers, and it may be. However, garnishing employment wages can be incredibly difficult if your debtor works for cash, works under contact, is a low waged employee, or is self employed. The underground economy, a term referring to people who go to work every day and get paid under the table, makes it very difficult for child support orders to remain fair and equitable.

So what are you to do about all of these issues of proper intelligence gathering that prevent you from receiving the amount of child support that you deserve? The private investigator is your answer. Private investigators have the expertise, experience and knowledge to get the legally admissible evidence that you need to receive the child support that you deserve.

A serious error in judgment on my behalf has put me at risk of ID theft. During a phone call I supplied personal info to someone who I believed was with Revenue Canada. Immediately after I realized I had fallen for the CRA scam. Shame on me!  Since the incident I've been frantically taking steps to fend off the dire repercussions that such a mistake can have. This has included: Filing a police report, Filing a report with the Canada Anti Fraud center, Adding flags to my bank accounts, Putting up Fraud alerts on the 2 main credit bureau's. I've even purchased some Identity theft tracker software to monitor my info. I contacted Investigation hotline to see if there was any additional measures I could take. The agent applauded me on the steps I had already taken. They also had knowledge about the CRA phone scam itself that helped settle my nerves somewhat. With all the fear and anxiety I've been enduring for the last while it was assuring to speak with someone familiar with the actual risk potential.

I called investigation hotline after I provided somebody a home renovation and they refused to pay, I tried to bring them to court- hired a lawyer and found out I was given false information on the contract. After speaking with Mitch and explaining my situation I felt that he sincerely cared about my case and was quick to find out the information I needed. Within a couple of days, he had all the information I needed. I could not thank Mitch enough. I would highly recommend investigation hotline to anybody as I feel they are experts in the field and act fast and work efficiently. I felt that Mitch had a deep understanding of what I was going through and was empathic and understanding. I could not thank him enough and will be using this service again if needed. Kaitie S

Apr 02, 2018 I needed an investigator on Sunday Easter Week End. No one cared about the situation except this Company. The investigator was dispatched to the location without minutes. did not care about the Money to be prepaid or secured. The investigator took it personal. He felt of my situation and Specially when it came to my kids issues. My Ex-wife was cheating in a hotel north east of Toronto. He Located her within 1/2 Hour. This a true story; I never thought Investigator cared about the situation but the money.. This company did not care about the money, they finished the job, send me the invoice and i Paid him more than what he asked for. Sometimes money does not mean any thing to some one wants to get a load off his back and find the truth about his wife,,,, FOR SURE THIS COMPANY TOOK A HUGE LOAD OFF MY BACK. THANK YOU SO MUCH JOE MICHIGAN
