What are Child Custody Investigations?
Sometimes child custody arrangements need to be reevaluated in a divorce or separation. The parent awarded custody may not be suitable as the primary caregiver. In some cases, even visitation may not be appropriate. The other parent may have started dating someone with a questionable past or possible criminal background, or may be using a babysitter who might not be fit to care for your children.
Using various surveillance techniques, B. Lauren Investigations can chronicle the other parent’s behavior during their planned visitation to determine illicit or inappropriate activity while your child is in their care. The other parent can also be observed when not on parenting time to document and investigate their lifestyle, daily activities, living conditions and persons they associate with.
If you believe your children are at risk, child custody investigations are designed to get court-admissible evidence that will help establish the truth of the situation. B. Lauren Investigations is licensed in New Jersey and New York, and conducts child custody investigations throughout the tri-state area.
Child Custody Investigation Steps
If you are interested in hiring BLI for a child custody investigation, you can start by scheduling a consultation. For most cases, we require that you be working with an attorney or have a court order in effect. We will discuss some of the basics of your specific case. We may ask you to answer some of the following questions to get a better idea of the situation:
- Are you currently working with an attorney?
- Are there any orders or restrictions in place?
- What is your current relationship with the other parent?
- What are your concerns or suspicions?
During the consultation, we will discuss a strategy for your child custody investigation using our experience and all the resources we have at our disposal.
If you believe that your current custody arrangement should be modified or changed, or if you believe your children are at risk while in the care of the other parent, don’t wait to begin a child custody investigation.
