What Is Cohabitation?

Cohabitation occurs when two people live together in a sexual relationship without being married. This living arrangement can influence the outcome of a divorce settlement, especially concerning alimony. If cohabitation has a negative impact on child custody, an individual might contemplate seeking assistance from a divorce settlement expert or hiring litigation investigators to conduct surveillance. However, consulting with a divorce lawyer is the best course of action, although it can be time-consuming. Establishing proof of cohabitation is a crucial step if you wish to reduce or terminate spousal maintenance.

How Is Cohabitation Proven?

Even if you suspect that someone is cohabitating, it's crucial to provide proof for the court's decision on alimony payments. To achieve this, hiring a private investigator with expertise in cohabitation investigation and gathering evidence is essential. You can seek assistance by engaging a California private investigator or a child-support private investigator familiar with the area. While there are many private investigators in Los Angeles, finding one skilled in proving cohabitation requires expertise. These investigators can employ various methods to establish evidence of cohabitation.

Background Check

Any private investigator can perform checks, but this step is crucial. Conducting a background check on your ex-partner's current partner can uncover various issues. While it may not definitively prove cohabitation, especially if they are not listed on residence-related documents, it can be valuable in child custody considerations. Background checks can reveal past criminal charges and other relevant information.

Social Media Checks

Even if you're already monitoring your ex-spouse's social media, it can be challenging to find corroborating evidence. However, you can still document shared activities by your ex-spouse, even if they don't openly share their social media account with their partner. For instance, if you notice them "checking in" at specific locations or going on vacations together.

Public Records Search

Investigating public records, such as gas or electric bills and vehicle ownership, can also provide clues about cohabitation. While public records are accessible, knowing where and how to search is essential.

Statement Gathering

Private investigators excel at gathering information. They may interview neighbors or community members to gain insights into your relationship. In a community, this approach can offer a unique perspective. Private investigators can also use this skill to shed light on relationships and confirm if a couple recently vacationed together. Investigating a couple's vacation, a private investigator can visit the resort or hotel where they stayed and inquire with the staff to confirm their presence in the same room, displaying public affection.

Trash Removal

Similar to what you might see in movies, going through someone's trash can yield valuable information to support cohabitation claims. Items such as letters, bank documents, prescription bottles, and notes can reveal shared information. However, this is only permissible if the trash has been placed at the curb and does not belong to the owner.


Surveillance is among the most effective ways to gather solid evidence. This investigation typically spans 3-4 weeks and is focused on proving cohabitation. The evidence can include video footage of the couple displaying affection in public, photographs, and even keys of cars parked in the same garage or driveway. Surveillance occurs over various weeks and different days, including weekends and weekdays, to provide a comprehensive view. Courts can use this evidence to ascertain whether the other party resides at the same address.
