I’m Fighting for Custody of my Children: Should I Hire a Private Investigator?

, , | 07/08/2020

Child custody cases can be very emotional and difficult for all parties involved. Whatever the reason may be for the relationship ending, situations become much more difficult when children are involved. Many factors come into play in a child custody battle and details become very important. If you are fighting for custody of your children, you may want to enlist the help of a private investigator to help you identify these details, keep them straight and present them in a way that will prove favourable to you in front of a judge.

Because going through a child custody battle can be exhausting and emotional, bringing in a third party PI can ensure that even though you may not be at the top of your game, someone will build and present your case with professionalism. Child custody investigations include a close examination of how the child is being treated by both parties as well as the objective well-being of the child. A private investigator can help you assess how your child is being treated and help you build a case in support of you. A PI can also help refute your ex-partner’s case against you.

How exactly can a PI help you build your case? A private investigator is skilled in collecting background information on an individual, including criminal behaviour/records, driving records, drug abuse, etc. A PI may even unearth hidden assets or discover evidence that your ex-partner is unable to provide financially for your child. They can also collect information on the quality of your ex-partner’s childcare, including basic care (i.e. food, medicine) and whether or not they are able to provide a safe environment for your child. A PI may use surveillance techniques to prove that you are a better fit for custody of your child. They can track your ex-partner to discover and prove possible neglect or abuse through use of photography and video. Furthermore, a private investigator is well-versed in interview techniques and can collect valuable evidence from friends, family, teachers, your coworkers and neighbours to help you build your case.

While you are fighting for custody of your child or children, hiring a private investigator to support your case may be the most important thing you do. Collecting evidence that will be admissible in court is in a private investigator’s wheelhouse. So don’t risk it. Give a PI a call to discuss your case and how they can ensure you receive the custody you seek.
