Do You Have Child Custody Concerns?
A child custody investigation can help to ensure the child involved is safe. The investigations will attempt to determine what the child’s experience is like when in the custody of the parent/guardian. Child custody investigations can reveal chronic neglect, child abuse, or parental alcoholism or drug abuse.
An investigator may use surveillance to determine what is occurring when the parent/guardian is with the child. Investigators will document or video any abuse or neglect that they are able to observe. Other evidence will also be gathered that shows the child is being treated well or not. Investigators may also speak with witnesses and obtain statements.
Investigators can find out whether a parent indulges in reckless driving, criminal activity, alcoholism, neglect, or other activities that may affect a child's welfare. Based on the information and evidence gathered, parents and courts can determine what to do to ensure the child safety.
If thankfully, abuse or neglect is not present in the child custody investigations, you can enjoy peace of mind that your child is safe.
