Emily Cheating Partner Investigation

“From the initial inquiry through to completion of the appointment, PUIK delivered an outstanding service providing clear and direct advice and support in a difficult situation that I found myself in. Above and beyond the call of the professional service they provided, the investigator assigned to my case Osman supported me through a challenging period with friendship and advise akin to that of a dearly trusted friend. This had a profound effect on me and I realized the depth of understanding and skill that the team at PUIK have. Excellent service and I would have no hesitation in recommending PUIK to anyone who finds that they require the specialist advise and services they offer.”

Dr Mahmood Child Custodial Investigation

I should like to express my thanks for the quality of service, provided at short notice, by your team over the last few days. John picked up and ran with a piece of surveillance I asked him to carry out about the middle of the week. Even when things went pear shaped he persevered and has, as result managed to produce a favourable outcome against quite steep odds, whilst staying focused and professional the whole time. I have been impressed so please express my thanks to him.

    WHAT IS CHILD CUSTODY?

    Child custody investigation services

    “Child custody” is a legal term for the relationship between an adult and a child in their care. A married couple usually has joint legal and physical custody, meaning that each parent has equal rights and responsibilities when making decisions about the child’s welfare. Custody can become an issue in a divorce or separation of the parents or in the event of the death of the parents.

    Childcare arrangements can take many different forms. If there has been a formal legal proceeding, the custody agreement is usually outlined in a court document called a Child Arrangement Order. The outcomes discussed in this document will affect how much child support one parent has to pay. Here are some of the different ways an arrangement order  can describe custody:

     

    • Legal custody. This is the right to make decisions on your children’s behalf. It includes giving consent to medical treatments and choosing where they go to school.

     

    • Physical custody. Also called “residency,” this describes the living arrangements. If you are awarded residency, you’re responsible for the day-to-day care of the children, like providing them with food, clothes and shelter. 

     

    • Sole custody. This is when only one parent has charge of a child. Sole legal custody is when only one person has the right to make decisions about the child’s welfare. A sole residency arrangement means the child lives with you most of or all the time. If you have sole legal and physical responsibilities, you have “full custody” of the child. Even if you have this, the other parent usually still has some rights, like visitation.

     

    • Joint custody. This is when both parents share care responsibilities. In joint legal custody, each parent has equal rights on making decisions on the child’s behalf. Joint residency, colloquially referred to as “50 50 Child Custody” in the UK, is when the child spends the same amount of time at each parent’s home.

     

    • Split custody.  This is when siblings are separated in a custody arrangement. Custody of one or more children is granted to one parent, while the other parent is responsible for the other children.

    HOW CAN WE HELP

    People ask for our help because a custody agreement is either in progress or has concluded with an unsatisfactory outcome. Clients usually contact us because they don’t think the other parent is fulfilling their responsibilities.

    We can conduct surveillance, background checks, and tracing to gather evidence that the other parent is:

    • Leaving the child unattended for amounts of time that are inappropriate for their age.
    • Spending time away from the child, leaving them in the care of people who aren’t involved in the custody arrangements or with people who might even pose a danger to the child.
    • Using drugs or abusing alcohol. Not only will the incapacitation of a parent put the child in physical danger, but early exposure to substance misuse also puts the child at an increased risk of developing problems with addiction in the future.

     

    Please see the NSPCC’s website for more information on drug use and child custody in the UK.

    • Engaging in criminal activity.
    • Lying about their ability to make child maintenance payments.
    • Unable to provide adequate care because of physical or mental illness.
    • Otherwise endangering, abusing, or neglecting the child.

     

    If you suspect any of the above, it’s crucial that you get evidence. Please get in touch with us for a free consultation. We’re non-judgemental and happy to help you in any way we can.
