Alienation  gavelIt’s a law that is only recognized in seven states, but it may cause unhappily married couples to think twice before engaging in an affair. A person who suffers from the pain of an unfaithful husband or wife may be eligible to file an “Alienation Of Affection” lawsuit – against their spouse’s lover.

This concept has recently received new attention due to some well-publicized scandals, most notably the Tiger Woods saga. The number of women who claim to have had an affair with Tiger seems to grow daily, and if any of these trysts occurred in Hawaii, Illinois, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, South Carolina or Utah, then Tiger’s wife, Elin Nordegren, could file a lawsuit.

Finding Public Records Isn’t Always Easy.

Collecting public records on your own is difficult. We can help.

We live in the information age, a time when people are able to get almost any type of data they want from thousands of sources. This wealth of information has generated a new challenge: finding data that is complete, accurate and reliable.

Many companies sell public records, but they are often accused of providing inaccurate, incomplete or outdated information. These companies don’t always own the data they sell, and sometimes utilize a “bait and switch” tactic to get people to purchase multiple reports.
