Child Custody & Support Investigations
Child custody can be a major point of contention during a divorce. At the end of the day, however, a judge will render a decision based on the best interests of the child. The court takes into account a number of different factors, such as financial stability, criminal activity, and the physical and mental health of the parent, when deciding on a suitable custody arrangement. Although it is not always necessary to hire a private investigator in a custody dispute, doing so may be a good idea if you have imminent concerns about the safety and well-being of your child. Jackson Private Investigators can help you conduct background checks, witness interviews, and surveillance in order to collect evidence that will substantiate your claims in court.
Divorce proceedings can be messy. Often, there is lingering anger and resentment that can make it difficult to come to an amicable agreement regarding matters such as child custody. In some cases, there may be differences in opinion as to how best to raise the child with respects to religion, education, and lifestyle, which can lead to battles over physical and legal custody. It is the role of the court to deliver a fair and unbiased custody arrangement that will serve the best interests of the child in these situations. Typically, disagreements about childrearing practices are not sufficient grounds for sole custody or limiting access to the child. However, if you have reason to believe that the mother/father of your child is an unfit parent, it is important that you gather evidence to support any allegations you plan to make against them. That is where our team of private investigators can help. We can discretely surveil the individual to determine if there is abuse or negligence taking place, and document any evidence of such violations of parental obligations for use in your case.
Providing for a child can be a tremendous burden for a single parent. The cost of food, clothing, daycare, healthcare, education, and extracurricular activities can add up quickly. Child support payments help to offset the financial difficulties of the parent who is primarily responsible for raising the child. It ensures that the child will have access to all the basic necessities of life, including proper housing and adequate nutrition, until they reach adulthood. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to collect child support payments from an uncooperative parent. In some cases, the individual may attempt to avoid paying child support by concealing their true income and/or assets. At Jackson Private Investigators, we can help you conduct an investigation to determine if the parent of your child is trying to circumvent the system. Your child deserves the highest quality of life possible, and we intend to make sure that you are receiving the proper amount of child support you are entitled to. Our Jackson, MS private detectives can locate and investigate the mother/father of your child to uncover their true financial situation.
