When settling child custody in Miami and Tampa, they make the decision in the best interest of the child. What’s convenient for the parents is usually not a matter of interest. And generally speaking, that sounds fair.

Parents don’t always make the best decisions. Private investigators can expose if a parent can provide a stable home environment. These investigations can involve surveillance, database checks, “significant other” checks and much more.

Are you concerned about child abuse or drug use by the noncustodial parent? Evidence can be relevant for visitation determinations.

I’ve been trying to tell anyone that would listen, my wife of 16 years was mistreating our children. They were able to get the video proof I needed to let everyone see what was happening. You could tell they were engaged with the assignment .

Collection of Evidence

searching through documents for the “smoking gun,” digging for civil judgments or criminal records, talking to people, or utilizing other means such as a stakeout.


Working within the confines of the law, we’ll watch an individual to see where they go, how they interact with their children (if it’s a custody case, for example), whether they’re living a secret life, etc.

Background Checks

Checking a person’s professional history, social contacts, credit, criminal history, and other such information typically is done via the internet but also may involve phone calls and interviews.
