Justice Solutions Group’s primary concern is also what is in the best interest of your child, and obtaining information and evidence that if any neglect, abuse whether be from the use of drugs or alcohol by a parent or even lack of basic needs such as sleep or nutrition.
How Do Child Custody Investigations Work?
In many cases of divorce or separation where parents of a child have worked out a visitation and custody situation, it may not 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.
But, you may be aware of things that the Court isn’t.
Your child may begin to display signs of abuse, verbally report abuse, one or more parents may move to a different area and not notify the court, the parent can begin having family members or friends and overnight guests around the child that could be 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 your 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 the right evidence that works the best for that particular matter. The majority of child custody investigations are most successful in Orange County, Los Angeles and San Diego by utilizing surveillance, where video and photo evidence can be obtained showing any number of forms of abuse or neglect.
Additional types of evidence and investigation:
Witness Statements – 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 extremely high-value evidence in a court of law, and may have a major impact in the case.
Trash Retrievals – Private Investigators like Justice Solutions Group are able to retrieve the trash/refuse from a garbage can left on the street from the house 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:
