Child Custody Investigations
In the unfortunate event of a separation or divorce, Child Custody Investigations are invaluable to ensure that children of the marriage are safe. Parents or relatives may commission a child custody investigator to ascertain how well a child is treated, by custodial or non-custodial parents, and how a child is responding to either parent. Occasionally when parents are investigated, disturbing and sometimes alarming details are uncovered including parental addiction to drugs or alcohol, severe neglect and child abuse. Private Investigators UK employ qualified, highly experienced personnel who specialise in Child Custody Investigations. If you are concerned about the welfare of a child and want to know what is going on in their life, we can find out. Your intervention in employing the services of a private detective can mean the difference between life and death.
What is involved in Child Custody Investigations?
Usually surveillance is utilised to allow our investigator to see what occurs when the child is with the parent. Documentary of video evidence is then taken to record any child neglect or abuse that is observed. In addition, a private investigator may make enquiries of neighbours or even the parents requesting that they complete a comprehensive questionnaire detailing their relationship and parenting of their child. Private investigators may also be commissioned by parents to find witnesses and discuss their knowledge of the custodial or non-custodial parent and child, possibly for the purposes of court proceedings.
Dangerous driving, alcohol consumption, neglect and any other adverse behaviour, which could impact negatively on the welfare of a child, often form part of Child Custody Investigations. Depending on the evidence and data our private investigator gathers, parents are better informed when considering the safety of their child. If court proceedings are imminent or ongoing, the evidence of an experienced, qualified private investigator will have more credibility than a parent’s allegations. If you have any suspicions that a child is being abused or neglected, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Are Child Custody Investigations necessary?
It’s a sad fact of life that children are more often abused by those they are close to, including parents. It’s also unfortunate that less credence is given in court to parents with genuine concerns, if there is a custody battle, after the break-up of a relationship or a divorce.
Private Investigators UK are approached by parents regarding child safety issues for many reasons but mainly it’s because they need hard evidence to prove beyond reasonable doubt that their ex is not only an unsuitable parent but also an abusive one. The best way to gather this evidence is by employing a private detective.
With luck your suspicions may be unfounded but at least you will have done all you can to ensure your child is happy, healthy and above all safe.
