Child Custody Investigations

Child Custody Investigations

The findings from a child custody investigation can significantly influence a court’s decision about who your child lives with most of the time. Courts will prioritize what’s in the best interests of your child, and, if you’re able to present compelling evidence of abuse, neglect, alcoholism, prostitution, kidnapping, illegal drugs, mental health issues, or close contact with sex offenders by the other parent, you may be able to get a complete transfer of custody if you’re seen as the safer parent.

Parenting Plan Investigations

Parenting Plan Investigations

The findings from a parenting plan investigation can significantly influence a court’s decision about how often you see your child and who will make decisions about their schooling, healthcare, and other aspects of their day-to-day life. Courts will prioritize what’s in the best interests of your child, and, if you’re able to present compelling evidence of abuse, neglect, alcoholism, prostitution, kidnapping, illegal drugs, mental health issues, or close contact with sex offenders by the other parent, you may be able to modify your parenting plan arrangement.

Minor Guardianship Investigations

Minor Guardianship Investigations

The findings from a minor guardianship investigation can significantly influence a court’s decision about whether or not the child’s parent(s) can properly take care of them and if guardianship should be granted to the child’s relatives. Courts will prioritize what’s in the best interests of the child, and, if you’re able to present compelling evidence of abuse, neglect, alcoholism, prostitution, kidnapping, illegal drugs, mental health issues, or close contact with sex offenders by the parent(s), you may be able to get a complete transfer of custody if you’re seen as the safer option.

Our private investigators have extensive experience conducting family law investigations and are experts at locating hard-to-find people, background checks, and surveillance.

Confidential

Your relationship with us is completely confidential and will never be disclosed to anyone. All information you provide and the evidence we gather is securely stored and can’t be accessed by anyone but us.

Responsive

We provide frequent updates throughout the investigation so you know exactly what’s going on every step of the way.

In-House

In-House

We will never, ever, subcontract your case out to another private investigation agency to make a profit (which is unfortunately still a common practice in the industry). We conduct all our investigations in-house - except when we need help on difficult investigations, in which case we’ll bring in a small group of private detectives that we know and trust.

Creative

Creative

We spend most of our off-time researching and developing newer, faster, lower-cost ways to get results for our clients. Many of the methods we’ve developed are now in use by other private investigators in the industry.

Legal

All our evidence is legally gathered so it will hold up in court. This means we can provide credible court testimony when questioned by opposing counsel about how we gathered the evidence.

Quiet

Quiet

Our investigations are designed to prevent detection and avoid suspicion. We meticulously prepare for each case, create contingency plans to deal with unexpected problems, and use covert evidence-gathering techniques that are almost impossible to trace.

Fast

Fast

We understand that hiring a private investigator is probably nerve-racking and you're anxious for results. That’s why we start working on your investigation as soon as you hire us, so you can get the evidence you need to keep your child safe.
