What Is A Child Custody Investigation?
Child custody investigations are thorough evaluations used to determine what happens when the other parent has the child out of your sight ensuring the safety of your child. Common reasons for a child custody investigation includes child abuse, chronic neglect, alcohol abuse and instances of drug use. A child custody investigation is often requested by a concerned parent to observe and evaluate the child’s experience while with the other guardian’s care.
Other reasons for child custody investigations often occur when a divorce or separation takes place; this usually causes a dispute between the parents regarding physical custody of the child. Due to the high emotions, separating parents may throw accusations at one another regarding their parenting skills and abilities. These accusations may be valid while others may be alleged to limit one parent’s access to the child. Because of the possibility of false accusations a qualified private investigator is needed to uncover evidence of the truth.
A child custody investigation can sometimes get intimidating because of the process. Through this process, an investigator will make an observation of the child’s life in both your home and the other parent/guardian’s.
