Child Custody

We understand that a Child Custody Investigation will usually come at a time where our Client’s are experiencing court fees, dividing of assets, attorney fees and more. With that said, we listen to our Client’s needs, and develop an action plan that will get the results they need in the most cost effective manner possible.

During a Custody Investigation Discreet Services can provide a multitude of services. Surveillance is used to document the activities at the other parents residence. We look for drug and alcohol activity, document who comes and goes, follow the other parent to ensure they are using seatbelts for their child while traveling and to ensure they keep they child safe while in public. Ever case is different, so depending on the child’s age, demographic and many other factors, we customize the Surveillance for the client’s needs.

We conduct in depth background investigations on anyone the child comes into contact while not in your care. For example, if the other parent has a new boyfriend or girlfriend, we look for things like drug charges, assault, sex offender registry and more. This other person may also have charged where he or she was charged with child endangerment.

Our Private Investigators can inspect the trash at the residence to look for drug paraphernalia, extreme alcohol use and other things. This is typically called a dumpster dive. We send one of our licensed Private Investigators to obtain the trash on trash day. We must do this when the trash can is not on the Subject’s property. We video the trash being removed from the dumpster and conduct a complete inventory. All of the evidence is documented with a proper chain of custody and obtain legally.

We also provide DRONE services for Child Custody Investigations. We can deploy a Drone with 4k video capabilities to document the backyard of a residence or a residence in a gated neighborhood with limited access. We typically look for things like pools with no fence, unsafe playing environments, swimming without supervision, or to collect license plate numbers for vehicles that can’t be observed from the road. We comply with FAA Drone operation guidelines.
