Child Custody, Visitation, and Divorce Investigations
In child custody cases, the primary concern for all parties involved is to protect the welfare of the child. When a Tennessee court determines who will receive custody of a child, they take several factors into account, including a parent's ability to provide a loving, clean, safe, and stable environment for the child. Once child custody is granted, based on these factors and others, both parents must adhere to the parenting plan approved by the court.
Every year a large number of parents entitled to child support money never receive the full amount owed to them, with some receiving no money at all, even though a court has required the other parent to pay. Unfortunately, it can also be difficult for the courts to accurately assess a child's living situation. This is due to the limited resources available and an overburdened system which make it impossible for them to follow through on every case.
Parents who receive co-parenting time by the courts but fail to actually spend time with their children can be taken back to court for an amendment of the custody schedule as well as the child support paid or owed. Often times our investigations reveal a parent is leaving the child with family, friends, new boyfriends or girlfriends, neighbors and even strangers. This can be traumatic to the child and with proper documentation can be presented to the court for a complete reevaluation of the parenting plan and custody schedule.
In the course of a child custody investigation, our professional investigators might need to speak to friends, family, childcare workers, co-workers and the involved agencies to get the clearest picture of your child's situation. Ham Investigations will focus solely on your case utilizing the best tools and resources available to provide a thorough, discreet and professional investigation. Ham Investigations will provide the information you need by utilizing surveillance, hidden asset checks, public record searches, and much more.
When your child's other parent is not paying child support, but continues to generate income in some form, we are able to help you collect where the government falls short. Our responsibility is to find you as much information as possible about them to help you get the legal system to take action and help you get your child's money. Ham Investigations will work to provide documented proof to verify:
- Where the other parent currently resides
- The name and address of their current employer
- What assets they may have (real estate property, vehicles, boats, motorcycles, etc.)
The question is, are you fed up with waiting and going without the money you need to properly care for your child? Although your primary goal is to get the child support payment, there could be many different ways to reach that goal. Sometimes finding the name of the employer and providing it to the court is sufficient. When you are required to show proof that the other parent is actively attempting to hide their income from you, we can help.
If you feel your child's best interests are not being met by your current custody arrangements, or if child support payments aren't being made, Ham Investigations can help provide the proof you need to take your case to court in order to obtain the relief and the protection for your family.
