Your child’s health and wellbeing are paramount. If you suspect that your child is not getting the love, care, and attention they need from your ex-partner, it’s time to uncover the truth.

One of the most disputed issues in the Australian courts is child custody. The Family Law Act 1975 legislates for the custody of children following family separation. Fighting for child custody after a separation or divorce can quickly become messy and unpleasant. One of the main issues for consideration of placement is the health and welfare of the child. Courts make child custody decisions based on what is in the best interests of the child, which includes ensuring they will have their essential needs met.

Like you, we value family. If you share custody of your children, are working your way through a difficult custody battle, or believe that your ex-partner is not paying their fair share of child support, we can help.

Your children are precious

Family is everything. The happiness and health of your children mean the world to you – we understand. Unfortunately, not all parents feel the same, and some fall into abusive or neglectful behaviours.

If you suspect any of the following, get in touch as soon as possible:

  • Your children are being neglected by your ex-partner
  • Your children are being abused by your ex-partner
  • Your ex-partner is not meeting the basic needs of your children
  • Your ex-partner earns more money than they have disclosed and may be obliged to pay more child support

A private investigator’s role in child custody cases

Hiring a private investigator is a smart move if you are pursuing custody or contesting a previous custody ruling. A skilled private investigator can help in the following ways.

  • They can gather evidence of an ex-partner’s inability to provide proper care.

If you suspect your former spouse or domestic partner is failing in his or her duty to care for your child, we can help prove your case. Without proof to back your claims, the courts will not rule in your favour. If you have documentation to support your accusations of abuse, neglect, or other improper behaviour, it improves your chances of gaining sole custody or restricting the visitation rights of the other parent.

  • They can conduct covert surveillance.

A skilled private investigator can discreetly collect proof to support your child custody case. In instances where you suspect the other parent of neglect or other wrongdoing, an investigator might be able to obtain documentation – such as photos or video – that shows them engaged in improper behaviour.

  • They can perform background checks.

Background checks are a proactive way to identify any risk factors of persons close to your ex-partner who may be caring for your children. If custody is shared, it is important to know if the other adults in your child’s life have criminal histories or engaged in any past behaviours that would compromise the level of care your child would receive. Our investigators diligently scour public records for any potentially incriminating evidence.
