Working under the table

Other than hiring a private investigator, is there any way to find out if someone is working under the table? Has anyone hired a private investigator? How much did they charge?

  • OP, I'm really not sure if there would be any other way, except via some sort of private investigator. If this is for child support I support you could report the person, along with their suspected employer, to the state?

  • Why do you care if they get caught it's their problem? --

    actually, its not just 'their problem'..anyone who is self-employed knows the high cost of SE tax is partially due to so many who cheat. idk what the reason..if i knew it was happening, i'd report them.

  • Yes - my ex is claiming he can't work and has gotten a dr to go along with it (he had a heart attack in 2006 and has been working on getting disability since, they keep denying it), but he can't live on nothing - so I know there's money coming in, but the courts say I have to prove it!

  • So he's getting off child support, yet he buys the kids stuff, takes them on vaca, etc. I did get one of the hotels to send me a receipt of his stay, so I can prove he's spending money, but for now that's all I can prove. I don't know his employer, I have no idea, just my suspicions due to his cancelling so many appointments during weektime hours, never requesting vacation when the kids have teacher workdays during the week - and he's getting money from somewhere.

  • I dont know about your state but in Ohio if the ex receives disability the custodial parent gets no child support. I also think many child support agencies have their own investigators so if you can say he works for XYZ company,they can go look/investigate

  • If he ever receives social security disability, then my kids will receive disability support through ssdi (at a rate of about 50% of what he gets) so child support would not be necessary.
