Marital matters

Couples, couples involved in divorce proceedings

Although it is never easy to admit that you have suspicions about the actions of your partner, it is sometimes necessary to shed light on situations that seem unclear and to seek explanation for disturbing attitudes displayed by your partner or spouse. Reaching out to UMBRA Investigations can give you peace of mind in total discretion during these periods of suspicion and provide you with a reliable and truthful response.

To assess the situation related to your marital situation in the best possible way and take the most suitable action, our investigators are well-versed in remaining discreet and bearing your needs in mind.

Family matters

Parents and children

The transition from childhood to adulthood can sometimes be difficult to manage: both for your child, who feels the need to assert himself/herself and explore new horizons, and for you too, as you see your child change and have no way of knowing if you have any cause for concern.

Adolescence is a period synonymous with mood swings, meeting new people and searching for new experiences. Although this is a normal process, when poorly supervised, it can sometimes lead to situations where the health of your child is at risk or even put his/her future in jeopardy.

Some indicators, such as a decline in academic performance, social withdrawal or a loss of appetite, are signs that you should be wary of.

In order to provide the best possible assessment of your child’s situation and take the most appropriate action, the services intended for parents are provided by a former police detective trained at the Geneva minor’s unit. He will use all his experience and his expertise in this field to answer your questions and construct, with your input, a response strategy that is consistent with your expectations.
