Child Custody

In case of a divorce or separation, a child custody investigation can help you make sure that the children involved stay safe. A parent or court may hire a child custody investigator to determine what the child's experience is like with a custody or non-custody parent. Investigations of parents sometimes reveal chronic neglect, child abuse, or parental alcoholism or drug abuse.

How does a child custody investigation work?

A child custody investigator may use surveillance to determine what happens when a parent is with the child. Investigators can document or video tape any abuse or neglect that they see and gather evidence that suggests whether the child is being treated well or not. Investigators may also question the parents and have them complete a detailed questionnaire on their parenting and the child. Additionally, investigators may speak to witnesses or may solicit witnesses for the court on behalf of the parents.
