Child Custody Battles

Unfortunately, Children are the the innocent by-standers of Child Custody Battles.  To say that Child Custody Battles create a stressful time for both the parents and the children is an understatement.  A licensed private investigation firm with specific knowledge in the laws pertaining to Child Custody is your best asset in fighting Child Custody Battles.  At Southern Recon Agency in Orlando, our co-owner and lead investigator is the only full time practicing investigator/attorney in the state with nearly 2 decades of family law experience.  In addition, he was also appointed by the Supreme Court to serve as a Family General Magistrate and Child Support hearing Officer.  There are simply no other private investigators in Orlando or anywhere in the State of Florida that can offer such a comprehensive and practical understanding of the law and what to expect from ongoing Child Custody Battles.

Laws for Child Custody Battles

In Florida, there are are 3 primary areas on Child Custody law:

Child Support Payments

Sadly, we know that money is often the primary motivation for Child Custody Battles.  Child support should be the easiest part of a child custody case because it is largely statutory.  Essentially each parent puts their income on a matrix and wherever the amounts intersect with the number of minor children involved, that is the support obligation.  As Private Investigators, we have seen parents often play games in attempting to hide or misrepresent their income in desperate attempts to reduce their child support obligation.  Our Orlando Private Investigators are experts in verifying the true income  reported in attempt to manipulate their child support payment obligations.

Responsibilities of Parents

The actual decision making rights concerning the children is called Parental Responsibility and is usually defined in the Parenting Plan.  Parental Responsibility normally includes education, healthcare, and all other major life decisions. In a perfect world, the parents would work together in the best interest of the children in deciding these matters.  Unfortunately, such cooperation is rare in most Child Custody Battles.  There are many situations where one parent is given the deciding authority. This is where an experienced child custody investigator can make a huge difference.  A licensed Private Investigator can obtain the evidence that can impact a judges decision including:

  • Habits of Neglect
  • Dangerous or Criminal behavior
  • Lack of Financial Resources
  • Substance or Alcohol Abuse
  • Association with Criminals
  • Unsuitable Living Conditions for a Child

Time Sharing

There are typically no normal or standard formats for time-sharing decisions.  It is typically determined on a case-by-case basis, and most often reflects the work schedule of the parents.  Time sharing can impact both the Parental Responsibility and child support.  For example, if one parent has “full custody” of the child, then it would be likely that they would have more responsibility in decision making for the child, in addition to receiving a higher level of financial support for the children.
