proving an unfit parent through investigationYour chances of winning custody of your child or children dramatically increase if you can prove that your former spouse is an unfit parent. The trick to proving this is, of course, documentation, which can be obtained through a child custody investigation. This is where our services as a private investigator can help you document and demonstrate to a court that your children should not be awarded custody to your ex-spouse.

There’s a wide range of techniques to prove a person is an unfit parent. This can be done with video or audio recordings or a combination of both. In certain situations, medical records can serve as documentation for your case. Criminal records may also be pertinent to denying custody to a parent.

Video recording

Obtaining evidence of a man or women in an act that shows them to be an unfit parent can be the most damaging evidence of all. With evidence like this, an unfit parent may drop the custody case completely. We have the surveillance skills to make video recordings of people without them being aware that they are being recorded. This is called sub rosa surveillance. Naturally, this is done in a completely legal manner, so you will be able to give this evidence to your attorney to be used in court to help your case.

Leaving children unattended

One example of evidence that we can uncover is when a parent leaves their children alone while they go out for the night. Regardless of where they are going, children should not be left alone at home. This same situation applies to a car. Leaving a child alone in a car is negligent. If this is happening to a child, we can document it.

We are judged by the company we keep

Along with providing evidence that children were left alone, we can also demonstrate where a parent was going. Our services can document what types of places and people your ex-spouse hangs out with. Even if a parent is not taking drugs, if they associate with those who do, this can be a bad influence on a child; therefore, a person could be judged unfit to be a parent by a court.

We can search for damaging records and files

There may be records in a person’s past that a court may see as evidence of an unfit parent. Examples of these records would be incidents of drug abuse, driving under the influence or felony convictions. If you suspect that there is a criminal past for your ex-spouse, we can search for criminal arrests and convictions and may find the evidence you need to win a custody battle.

The chances of winning a custody battle by showing the court your ex-spouse is unfit to be a parent are greatly enhanced by using our services. You must present the family court judge with evidence that a man or woman is unfit, and if this evidence exists, we will find it for you. Call us today and we can consult with you about how our services can help your specific circumstances.
