An Ultimate Guide To Child Custody Investigations

An Ultimate Guide To Child Custody Investigations

A child custody investigation as part of a divorce, separation, or custody proceeding, is an independent observation of the well-being and care of a child.

A traditional investigation involves an investigator evaluating their parents’ care of a child. Then the investigator’s finding is submitted to the court and included in the case’s assessments. A child custody investigation can provide credible information without discrimination while going through a divorce.

Investigators

How Does A PI Conduct Child Custody Investigations?

A child custody investigator may use surveillance to assess how a parent or legal guardian handles their child, based on the particular situation. In photographs, videos, and voice files, investigators can lawfully register the violence or negligence that they experience. They can also interview prospective witnesses, such as members of the family, and perform custodial party background checks. An investigator searches for problems like substance addiction, illegal behaviour, reckless driving, drinking, opioid abuse, and all other behaviours that impact the child adversely while interviewing a parent.

They also see if the parents provide their children with a comfortable clean home, nutritious food, moral support and other essentials. Such investigators are qualified to see
the child’s welfare as a priority. An investigator would not only send in a report but can also appear in court if the findings are problematic.

Different Types Of Child Custody

The court determines the child’s custody after an investigator presents their conclusions.
There are a couple of forms of custody that the parents could obtain, depending on the outcome of the investigation:

Legal Custody:

The right of parents with legal custody to make legal decisions about the child.

Physical Custody:

This form of custody decides which adult the child will be residing with.

Sole Custody:

Getting sole custody indicates that the child will be in both physical and legal custody of one parent. The other parent may visit the child occasionally, but decisions involving the child should not be made.

Joint Legal Custody:

With joint custody both parents can have a say in the decisions made about a child,, in decisions about the child. The matter will be resolved in court in the case of a significant disagreement.

Joint Physical Custody:

Joint physical custody means that the child divides time and stays with both parents.

When Are The Services Of A Child Custody Investigator Required?

While separations are never easy, investigations of child custody are not necessarily needed, but you do need an investigation if:

You are worried about the welfare of your child. A private investigator will actually support the claims with objective and legal evidence if you suspect your partner is incompetent to provide for your child for whatever cause. Strong proof could be required to shield a child from an abusive situation in a divorce case, where pressures are high and allegations are created. Ultimately, to protect your child safely from an unhealthy environment, an investigator will collaborate with you.

It’s peace of mind that you crave. If you are unsure if your partner is suitable to care for your child, in order to confirm or disprove their ability to fulfil the needs of your child, an investigator may legitimately look at their history, behaviour and parenting styles. Not only can credible facts stand in court, but it will provide you with the satisfaction of ensuring that your child is protected.

You were wrongly charged with abuse or misconduct. One parent may often make false claims, especially in court divorce proceedings in order to restrict the access of the other parent to their child. A private investigator may compile proof of proper behaviour to ensure that you have ample contact with your child.

The aim should not be to delegate responsibility and perpetuate negativity in the child custody cases, but rather to reflect on what is good for your child. In addition, parents have an erroneous

idea about custody cases. In such a situation, they assume their primary purpose is to delegate responsibility while promoting negativity toward the other side. In comparison, they should only rely on good things for their children. These investigations can be complex and you must hire a PI for this. At Private Investigations UK, we have a team of qualified PIs that can help you in these investigations by doing thorough research. In the UK, phone number tracker services, address location services, and many other services are provided by them.

Excellent service. I have never used a private investigator before and I was a bit nervous about using this service. However, John responded quickly to my enquiry and was so understanding of my situation. Thank you John and PIUK for your help.

I have never used a Private Investigator before and never thought I would need to. Unfortunately with having a husband who likes cheating, I needed someone to help me find the proof that I needed. Reluctantly I rang and spoke to John. What can I say apart from the fact that he was brilliant. He was very professional but at the same time very empathetic to my situation. The job was done brilliantly and discreetly and I got the results that I needed to prove I was right all along. I will definitely be recommending John to anyone who finds themselves In the unfortunate circumstance that I was in.

Great result. Hired to keep an eye on my staff whilst he was meant to be working from home. A day out in Blackpool, was not in his job description. There must be many employers in similar situations as me. If you are, then call these guys. Photo’s and videos paint a full picture. Thanks again.

Having used another company before with no joy, I was apprehensive at first. After speaking with John, I felt comfortable and confident to go ahead and glad that I did. He managed to trace my mother who I hadn’t seen for over 17 years and now we are back in touch again. Really happy with the service and would most certainly recommend them. :)

P.I.U.K helped me trace my ex-tenant who had been avoiding me for over 2 years and owed a lot of money. As such I was able to serve him with the court documents to get my money back. Great service.

I called this company to help me find my father. I must say they were brilliant. I didn’t know how it would work or what I needed to do and was very nervous before calling them. John however took his time with me and explained everything in detail as to what would happen and how they would go about it. I’m pleased to say within a few days they manage to find my dad and reunite us. I cant thank John enough for all that he has done for me.
