CHILD CUSTODY

What to expect:

During a child custody investigation, the investigator may conduct surveillance to get a better idea of how the parent treats his or her child when he or she does not know about any monitoring going on. Private investigators may document any instances of abuse or neglect by taking pictures or making audio or visual recordings of the parent interacting with the child. Some of the elements that a private investigator may try to include in his or her surveillance include reckless driving, criminal activity, gambling, drug abuse or other activities that may have a negative impact on the children. Additionally, the investigator may look for any signs that the parent is not providing a safe and hygienic living space, food or necessities. Your child’s welfare is our greatest priority.

 Justin Chappell has over 20 years of experience dealing with family law matters. Together we will work with you or your attorney to provide courtroom ready evidence. We understand how emotionally difficult it can be fighting for your children, and we will give your case the attention it deserves with court room ready evidence.

Where is your child during visitation: Who’s watching your children while the ex is at work?

Is your child talking about staying in or visiting places that sound oddly familiar – like a relative’s home or apartment? It’s likely your former partner is concealing their true finances and dropping your child off at a grandparent or relative’s home while they attend work. Not only does this defeat the purpose of shared custody (allowing them to spend quality time with their child), but it’s also a triable offense as they’re lying to the court about their finances and employment status. Don’t let these transgressions pass you by – hire a private investigator to discover the truth, and provide the upbringing your child needs while saving your financial stability.

How We Approach Child Custody Investigations?

Working off the initial suspicions of our clients, we perform a few days’ worth of subtle surveillance to gather initial evidence about the individual’s habits and behaviors. We capture any and all unsavory activity on video, and even run background checks on any other persons in the household that could have a criminal background (such as violent offenders and sexual predators) and pose a threat to your child. Following our in-depth surveillance and initial investigation, we’ll provide a comprehensive report,pictures, video evidence and even provide expert testimony in court to assist in convincing the judge to

make the right decision.

 
  • There are many factors the court will consider when making custodial decisions, they include:

  • Stability, health, lifestyle and schedules

  • Criminal Records and/or activity

  • Evidence of child abuse or neglect

  • Unfounded accusations of abuse or neglect by one parent about the other

  • History or complaints of violence against a parent

  • Evidence of Alcohol or drug abuse

  • Parenting skills

  • Means to provide food, shelter, and education for the child

  • Home environment

  • Morality of the parents

  • Emotional and physical health

  • Parents willingness to support the child’s relationship with the other parent

  • Abduction or abandonment of the child or other defiance of legal process

  • Care and affection shown to the child

  • Parents past and current conduct

  • Acceptability of parents associates

Often times, an unfit parent will present themselves as a competent person when appearing before the court, cleverly concealing their unsuitable lifestyle. Typically under these circumstances, parental testimony is not enough to ensure the placement of your child in your custody. In a custody battle, it is your responsibility to provide PROOF of your allegations. For this reason, a qualified private investigator can be essential. A licensed private investigator’s findings,

objective courtroom testimony and video documentation will always have more credence in court than a parent’s accusations. We Can Help You Help Your Child.

Chappell Investigations can discover and document undesirable behavior like reckless driving, Criminal activity, alcoholism, drugs, gambling, physical abuse, neglect, parental alienation, or other conduct that may affect a child’s welfare.

Workers Comp Fraud and Insurance Defense

Experienced Investigators: Our Subrosa Surveillance investigators are well-trained seasoned professionals averaging six years experience. Many are ex-law enforcement. This distinguishes us from those firms that offer sub-standard surveillance by hiring inexperienced people off the street with no expertise, paying them poorly, and then shoving them out in the field with a video camera. This approach is hit and miss, and more importantly, it can result in a blown cover, damaging the chances for success in the future.

 

Successful Track Record: We have saved clients over $9 million in claims over the last eight years. We know how to sniff out the fraudulent claimants and bust the claim wide open with case-breaking video. We back this up with experienced professional agents who close the deal with credible, unshakable testimony when it comes to a hearing, deposition-or trial.
