We can help . These investigations typically involve involve surveillance (discreet or overt), and other tactics such as asset assessments or background checks.

Physical Evaluation

A key to a child’s wellbeing is their physical environment. Is the child receiving proper care? Are they subjected to neglect, or not being properly taken care. Having a private investigator conduct surveillance can help prove this and receive you proper child custody.

In addition to the home, there’s also the surrounding area. Is the neighborhood safe? Are there enrichment options, a backyard or a nearby park? What’s the condition of the school they’d attend? How strong are its programs?

A child’s physical space needs to be safe, free of threats or risks, to enable a child to grow up secure and unafraid. It also needs to support any unique needs and treatment.

Social Evaluation

Just because a home provides regular meals and a warm bed doesn’t mean it’s the best place for a child. A home needs to be secure from outside and internal threats.

Thus, investigations also assess a home effect on a child’s mental and emotional wellness. Is the child happy? Are they isolated or have the potential to build friendships? Do caregivers connect with and love the child, or are the adults ignoring their emotional needs? Can the caretakers afford to care for the child correctly?

Social evaluations may extend beyond the proposed caretakers to extended family members and take into account the child’s opinion.

A positive social environment ensures a child develops into a well-balanced adult, whereas emotional abuse or neglect can have permanent effects. Child custody reports thus weight social and physical evaluations equally.
