Child Support Investigation

Child support is defined as the obligation a parent has regarding the care and financial support of children of a relationship that has ended.

Most state child support enforcement agencies do not have the resources to track down parents who evade their support obligations. However, if you locate the deadbeat, the state will close in right away and collect the money for you. How to investigate connects you to every state agency responsible for collecting child support

Empire Pacific Investigative Asset Search Team, locates property records and vehicle registrations, and can aid in collecting child support owed to you. You can turn this information discovered over to child support enforcement agencies, who in turn will attach those assets. Wages are considered assets and can be garnished

What is a Child Custody Surveillance?

In child custody surveillance, the investigator conducts surveillance of the activities of a parent, baby sitter, or nanny, while with the client's child or children. It is our practice to submit full written reports or statements as required, on a day-to-day basis, to the client in order that they are fully informed of developments.

All of our reports contain photographs taken from the actual video film depicting highlights of the investigation. This allows you to see the activities captured on videotape without having to actually view the film. Identifying photos of the subject and the subject's residence are also included.

Empire Pacific Investigative Services Inc., is a specialist supplier of surveillance and investigatory services, providing our clients with critical information and video evidence to resolve complex issues and minimize exposure to child custody cases.

Ask about our long-distance video lenses that can clearly film an individual from up to one-half mile away! Surveillance investigations often require hidden cameras. All of our investigators carry one and know how to use it. When EPIS Investigations is on the job, you will get film of individuals eating at restaurants, arriving at airports, and entering and exiting hotel rooms. No matter what your particular needs, we get the film!

Child Support Collection

Most state child support enforcement agencies do not have the resources to track down parents who evade their support obligations. However, if you locate the deadbeat, the state will close in right away and collect the money for you.

"Regrettably, many women can't afford to hire someone to locate a person or trace hidden assets. They're the primary salary earner for the children's. There's very little money left over to spend on professional fees."

EPIS, Inc., asset search can help in collecting child support owed to you. You can turn that information discovered from our investigators over to child support enforcement agencies, who in turn will attach those assets. Wages are considered assets and can be garnished.

"We encourage you to conduct an asset search to find out where people are banking or what kind of mutual funds they have or stocks. If they know how to hide their assets, they will put it under their family members (brothers, sister's name or somebody they think they can trust). That makes ownership very difficult to prove. It's much easier to find out where a person works. Their wages can be garnished."

A Beverly Hills law firm representing a woman in an attempt to collect her back child support, contacted EPIS, Child Support Investigation division, as the ex-husband claimed that he was unemployed and unable to pay his child support. Our skilled investigators utilized numerous techniques, including surveillance, to document that the ex-husband was currently employed with a large manufacturing business in down town Los Angeles, and verified that he was earning approximately over $250,000 annually.

Kim J.
My Son found Mike at Empire Pacific because we needed a detective in order to find someone. We had spend a lot of time and money on many search people websites and never found anything current on the person we were trying to find. We hired Mike to do an initial check to find the person. Mike called and said on the initial check that he had found what we needed, he said the second step would be to go look by foot and there would be a fee per hour. About 2 hours later Mike called and told us he had found the person and gave me his current phone number. I called and sure enough it was the person I was looking for. Now this shows how honest Mike is because he could have easily billed me for a few extra hours of leg work (which is paid per the hour) and I would not have known he already found the person. Mike was very attentive when I called and either picked up his phone or called me back very fast. I would highly recommend Mike, he is vey good at what he does and is respectful, honest and FAST!

Mike Hakimi from EPIS is a true professional. He helped me with my case. He delivers effectively and fast! I was trying to find someone that nobody has heard from him from since the late 90's, I was very unsure he was still around. I needed to find him and interview him for my movie project. A key character. And Mike incredibly found him. Don't hesitate hiring Mike for any type of service.

I have highest, highest praise for Mike at Empire Pacific Investigative Services. I had to take someone to court and I was concerned whether sheriff is efficient enough to do the serving or they will just attempt and I pay for nothing. I talked to Mike about serving this particular person and on top of it I try to force future steps of collection and Mike was extremely helpful to show me in and outs of all the options that I have and how he can help me.

My concern was the person that I am suing would play hide and seek, not available during the day and difficult to catch. Sure enough Mike served the paper within 2 to 3 days and informed me accordingly.

I am so happy to know Mike and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone that has needs for his services.

I contacted Mike at Empire to do some research for me on an old insurance claim. It ended up not being along the lines of work that he was an expert in but what was so great about the experience was that Mike went out of his way to find me someone that did specialize in the area. If you are considering a couple options on who you need for your investigation you...
