Can you hire a private investigator for Child Custody
You know deep down that your children or your grandchildren aren’t happy. It makes you feel sick inside that your little ones may be suffering at the hands of another, or even worse are being neglected or mistreated. Maybe you lie awake at night thinking about what can be done and you may even find yourself asking the question, “Can you hire a private investigator for child custody cases?”
The answer is absolutely yes, you can. This agency recommends, however, that you consult with your attorney before taking any drastic steps such as hiring a private investigator for a child custody case. You want to make sure everything you’re doing is in the best interest of the children and an attorney is the best person to ask these questions. If you don’t have an attorney you can find a reputable one here.
If you and your attorney have decided to do something about the treatment of your children or grandchildren then you both know you’re going to need evidence to back up your case in court. Evidence of neglect or mistreatment far outweighs any baseless accusations you make. So, how can a private investigator help you gather evidence to support your case in a child custody matter? There are several ways:
- A private investigator for child custody cases is considered a third-party non-biased witness. Anything they report and document and testify about is given more weight than a family member making claims. Private Investigators are independent third parties and have experience in testifying in cases like child custody investigations.
- They can document the activities of the children by video taping not only what they children are doing, but also by recording how they are interacting with their parents and others who are around them. They are able to provide irrefutable video evidence to support claims of neglect, abuse, harrassment, bullying and anything else that affects the child.
- They can provide an independent third party witness to how the child or children are spending their time. Are they stuck in the house all the time? Are they allowed to wander around the neighborhood unsupervised?
- Are there strangers coming to the house where the children are? The private investigator can run background checks on these people to determine any criminal activity. Maybe there’s a long string of strangers coming and going from the house. The private investigator can document this with video.
- Do you know exactly where the children are going? If you don’t, the private investigator can place a GPS tracking device (not legal in every state) on the vehicle to track where they are actually going. If the custodial parent is not bringing them to where they say, you will know from the private investigator’s GPS tracking report.
So as you can see, these are just a few ways you can hire a private investigator for child custody cases.
