When two people part ways, it can be tough and emotionally stringent on everyone — especially when a child is involved. The safety and well-being of the child should be everyone’s main priority, but when one of the parent’s conduct is questionable it can make things more complicated. This is why a Tampa private investigator for child custody cases is highly recommended.
Due to the sensitive nature of a child custody case, surveillance needs to be handled in a private and noninvasive manner. If you are concerned about your former partner’s behavior and believe they are participating in activities that could put your child at risk, covert surveillance can be discreetly carried out by a Tampa child custody private investigator without the subject’s knowledge. Surveillance is conducted with the use of tools such as fixed hidden surveillance cameras and GPS tracking devices. Records obtained during surveillance can be used as evidence during your child custody hearing.
- Documentation of Unlawful Activities
- When you hire a private investigator, your former partner will be under surveillance to obtain evidence that may support claims of unlawful activities or harmful behavior such as:
- Drug or alcohol abuse
- Court violations
- Hiding assets to avoid paying child support
- Cohabitation with another individual
- Child abuse or neglect
- Unsuitable living conditions
Background Checks and Third-Party Investigation
Undoubtedly you will be concerned about the type of people your child will be around when they are with your former partner. In fact, you may feel the need to have a background check conducted on your former partner if you have reservations about their past. Now that you and your partner are no longer together, your child may be in the company of family members, friends, babysitters, or a new love interest that you do not know. Therefore, a background check can verify someone’s history to give you peace of mind.
