5 Reasons for Child Custody Surveillance West Hollywood, CA

When it comes to child custody disputes, emotions can run high, and both parties may have different opinions about what is in the child’s best interest. Child custody surveillance may sometimes be necessary to protect the child’s safety and well-being. Empire Pacific Investigative Services (EPIS) routinely provides Child Custody Surveillance for families.

Is a Los Angeles Child Custody Investigation Necessary?

Here are five reasons why child custody surveillance may be necessary in some cases:

1. Ensuring the Child’s Safety

One of the most crucial reasons for child custody surveillance is to ensure the child’s safety. If one parent has concerns about the other parent’s ability to provide a safe environment for the child, surveillance may provide evidence to support those concerns. For example, if a parent is suspected of drug use or engaging in criminal activities, surveillance may uncover this information and provide evidence to support a custody decision.

2. Documenting Parenting Time

Child custody surveillance can be used to document each parent’s allotted parenting time. This can be helpful in cases where one parent is denying the other parent access to the child or not following the custody agreement. Surveillance can also provide evidence to support a modification of the custody agreement or a contempt of court action.

3. Protecting the Child from Abuse

If there are concerns about the child’s safety or well-being while in the care of one parent, child custody surveillance may be necessary to uncover evidence of abuse or neglect. This can include physical, emotional or sexual abuse. The safety and well-being of the child should always be the top priority in child custody disputes.

4. Ensuring Compliance with Court Orders

If a custody agreement has been reached through the court system, both parents are legally obligated to follow its terms. If one parent is not complying with the agreement, child custody surveillance may be necessary to provide evidence of non-compliance. This can be helpful in cases where one parent is not paying child support or not following the parenting schedule.

5. Protecting Against False Allegations

In some cases, one parent may make false allegations against the other parent in an attempt to gain custody of the child. Child custody surveillance can provide evidence to support or disprove these allegations. This can be helpful when one parent claims that the other parent is engaged in illegal activities or is neglecting the child.

CA Child Custody Surveillance and Investigations

Child custody disputes can be emotional and challenging for everyone involved. In some cases, child custody surveillance may be necessary to ensure the safety and well-being of the child, document parenting time, protect against abuse, ensure compliance with court orders and protect against false allegations.
