Cheating spouse? Worker Compensation Fraud? When you have that feeling that something just isn’t right - you are probably correct. Your mate starts changing their habits. Working late. New business meetings. Cell phone is now locked when it wasn’t before. Generally you intuition is correct and the only way you can know for sure is through surveillance. In Florida divorce is a no fault state but you still need that piece of mind to KNOW you are making the correct decisions. Surveillance can be a lot trickier and difficult than most people think. We use the most talented surveillance investigators that can be found. We have and use (when legally allowed) trackers and other electronic means to ensure that the surveillance is successful. Additionally we get the video that is legal in court for you use.
Surveillance has a much wider range of uses that a lot of folks realize.
Workers Compensation Fraud. Billions of dollars are lost to fraudulent collections and activities every year. At Diamond and Mann we offer statewide coverage and even have resources throughout the USA to get the information you need and in a timely fashion.
Child Custody claims and disputes. Is there a question to the fitness of the person who has current custody of your children or grandchildren. Do they drink and drive with the children? Do they leave them unattended? Are they associating with people or groups
of people they should not? Surveillance is about the only way (along with other investigative techniques) to get the evidence you need for court.
The unruly teenager. Ever wonder if they are going where they said they were? Who are they really hanging out with? We get the answers.
Missing Person - Skip Trace Locates
Looking to reconnect with a family member, locate and old friend or trying to hunt down the location of someone so that you can serve them legal process? Well look no further. We are the most determined and tireless agency there is. We don’t stop until we get the person located. Recently we worked a case where a girl from Florida was tricked into moving to Los Angeles and taken into human trafficking. Within three (3) hours we had located the missing girl when Los Angeles Police Department could not. The girl was successfully located to the parent’s relief. Many times relatives become missing and we need to locate them for reasons of checking well being to delivering an inheritance check. We have located relatives in homeless shelters and living on the streets when others could not. One case took us a year to locate the person whose family had sold a house in another state and he was entitled to his share. While it seems like a long time this person was living on the fringe of society and did not want to be found. He was certainly happy when he discovered his windfall of money.
Child Custody and Alimony Reduction
There is nothing worse than paying alimony to a spouse who has moved on to the point where their living conditions have changed such that alimony should stop or be greatly reduced. Alimony laws in Florida are some of the most progressive in the country. As long as alimony was awarded in the original divorce decree, Section 61.14 of the Florida Statutes provides that most types of alimony may be modified or terminated when there has been an unexpected, involuntary, and substantial change in circumstances that affects the former spouse’s ability to pay, or the other former spouse’s need for alimony. The real question and the cause of many court battles is exactly what that statement means. We use investigative methods that get you the evidence needed that is statutorily compliant to help you win you day in court.
Child custody or modification of a custody agreements can be difficult and time consuming. Spending countless hours in court trying to convince the judge that the agreement or actual permanent custody needs to change. We can get the evidence through a host of investigative techniques that will establish a firm basis for you to move forward in the courts and giving the judge something to hang their hats on when the decision is made.
Surveillance - to show that the conditions under which the children are staying should change. Is the parent associating with people and going places they should not. Who is coming and going from the home where the children are? Is there alcohol or drugs involved?
Trash analysis - when suitable - Trash analysis can be one of the most effective investigative techniques when employed correctly. Doug Diamond has testified in court as an expert witness over 6 times in the area of trash analysis. We can help.

Asset Identification and Location

Are you trying to make an informed decision whether or not to bring a legal action against someone in that you don’t want to sue someone that has nothing to gain. We can help. Depending on the level of investigation we can locate banks and account numbers that may be hidden from you and the courts. Many times it is not how much is in the account that matters in a case as much as the person lied to the courts on a financial disclosure document.
The person may have a relationship with a financial institution such as a brokerage. We check the top 40 in the USA.
Other assets can be located such as vehicles, businesses and etc. We can verify assets by traveling to the location and doing surveillance and photographing the vehicles or other property that may be of value to you. We leave no stone unturned.
Some offshore accounts can be located.
It is said that knowledge is power - however; in today’s world knowledge is safety. We can perform simple locates to comprehensive background checks including the Federal Courts. Background checks can be used for:

Everyone should be providing you with the above disclosure as it is the law with all background reports. However what do advise employers is to update your application process so that it reflects the needs of your business. Just because someone has an arrest in the past is not a reason to not hire them. Your application should ask the questions if they have ever been arrested in the past whether convicted or not. The important thing for you the employer is that the new hire is or will be a truthful employee. These background checks are excellent in the verification of the applicant’s information.
