Whether you are an attorney representing clients or someone who is representing themselves in family court, we’re here to help. These are the most common situations we are asked to investigate:
We take custody, cohabitation, and other family law cases seriously. We are proud to say that our track record in obtaining strong photo, video, and other types of evidence, as well as financial intelligence, has resulted in numerous cases where Judges of Family Law Court in Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego have found in favor of our clients.
Children are our most precious gift. We know that the number one goal as parents is to always provide the safest environment possible for them so that they grow up safely.
Justice Solutions Group’s primary concern is also what is in the best interest of your child. Obtaining information and evidence that shows neglect or abuse, whether it be from the use of drugs or alcohol by a parent or even the lack of basic things such as sleep, getting to school on time, or other essentials, can be critical in ensuring their safety and security.
Some of the things we are asked to conduct investigations and surveillance on are:
In many cases of divorce or separation where parents of a child have worked out a visitation/custody situation, it may not always be in the child’s best interest. The court may not have sufficient evidence at the time to identify that there are issues with either parent that may be putting the child at risk.
You may be aware of things that the court isn’t. We want to help you or your client get efficient evidence so that they see it clearly, too.
Your child may begin to display signs of abuse or verbally report abuse, one or more parents may move to a different area and not notify the court, a parent can begin having family members, friends, or overnight guests around the child that could potentially endanger them, begin using drugs or alcohol around the child while they are in their care, and much more.
Our experienced and qualified investigators can obtain the video, photo, witness, or physical evidence needed that can greatly influence the outcome or decision of the court to award custody to the responsible parent. It could even save a child’s life.
Private Investigators are independent, unbiased witnesses who can accurately document, articulate, and describe what they see and hear during an investigation, which gives clients an opportunity to present their case accordingly.
Every case is different and requires the right approach to get efficient evidence that works best for that particular matter. The majority of child custody investigations are most successful in Orange County, Los Angeles, and San Diego when utilizing surveillance, where video and photo evidence can be obtained showing any number of forms of abuse or neglect.
Child support can be one of the most frustrating and difficult areas of family law, often because the dynamics of fair support generally need to be adjusted due to changing circumstances.
Cohabitation and Financial Assistance – Cohabitation investigations show that a parent is now living with another adult who is able to provide additional financial assistance to the family dynamic. This can also be important in conjunction with alimony determination.
Our agents have leveraged expert covert surveillance and other techniques in hundreds of cohabitation investigations, resulting in favorable outcomes for our clients in court and mediation. We are most often enlisted for the following in assistance with cohabitation investigations:
Private investigators can speak with witnesses on behalf of the client to determine how the child is being treated while in the custody of the parent. Witness statements are considered extreme high-value evidence in a court of law and may have a major impact on the case.
Private Investigators like Justice Solutions Group are able to retrieve the trash/refuse from a garbage can left on the street from the homes in Orange County, LA County, and San Diego County. When this is available, we almost always suggest that we take the opportunity to retrieve the trash and look for important clues such as liquor bottles, prescriptions, bills, drug paraphernalia, and other dangerous items that may show a pattern of neglect or abuse within the home. These are often overlooked by other investigators because of their lack of experience conducting a garbage pickup investigation. Justice Solutions Group agents have been conducting these for many years, and aren’t afraid to get dirty when it comes to the safety of your child.
Additionally, Justice Solutions Group looks for ways to utilize technology and documentation whenever it can to leverage a favorable outcome for our client. This can include the following options being utilized in your case if they are available:
Family law investigations may be one of the most important and critical moments not only in your child’s life but in yours. We want to take the time to understand what is going on, determine how best we can help, and remain calm and understanding of the stress and effect that this has on you, our client.
Prior to beginning any kind of surveillance or investigation into a child custody situation, it is critically important that both you as a client and us as the investigators have worked out a strategy outlining exactly what evidence needs to be obtained, the likelihood that the evidence will be obtained, and other important factors. Since our investigators can remain as an uninvolved third-party but still sensitive to your situation, we are in the position to maintain focus on the client’s objectives without losing sight of what is important to the case. Once we have a strong understanding of the case and a plan in place, it is our responsibility and duty to execute the strategy.
Justice Solutions Group’s staff have many years of investigative experience in these areas of concern from not only a law enforcement perspective but a civil law and evidence procedure one as well. Our investigators have received specific training in regards to being able to identify all manners of child abuse and child neglect. They can identify when a child is placed in potentially hazardous or dangerous situations and are able to articulate and develop a profile that can identify a child being at risk.
