Child custody investigation on the Gold Coast definitely can be challenging for a private investigator. The coast strip' is a mix of secure high rise, very expensive self contained houses with security and areas where there is evidence of decay. There is a high turn over of tourists and residents in some areas, which sometimes work in our favour. The variations in traffic and housing density between the 'strip' that includes Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach, through to Coolangatta and Tweed Heads with the quieter hinterland areas such as around the Hinze dam or Lower Beechmont is amazing. Child custody investigations are can be either surveillance based or factual investigations (interviews, affidavits, locating and preserving evidence). Where both covert surveillance and factual inquiries are required it is preferable to conduct the surveillance first, to avoid heightened awareness by the subject. Child custody investigations are usually related to potential threats to the child's safety, breaches of conditions by a parent, exposure of a child to undesirable influences, sometimes drug related concerns or other behaviours. We understand these concerns, and have experience in assisting people to gather evidence in a form acceptable to a court. We would urge all our clients to not consider doing anything illegal, or which may harm their own standing before the court, no matter how satisfying it may feel at the time; we are aware that at times children are used as a 'weapon' in a conflict between parents, or leverage for a settlement. This may create heightened emotions. A custody battle is about emotions, the court recognises this. Sometimes the investigation may relate to child support, and people avoiding responsibilities; we have experience in this are as well. Our private investigators know the Gold Coast well. We provide an unparalleled service using this local knowledge. The Gold Coast strip is just that, with a mix of high end accommodation, canal living, secure compounds, 5 star resorts, tourist glitz, multi-laned and one way roads combined with area's of old buildings, decay, and social problems, along the coast. As you move West this gives way to lower density living, acreage and farmland, as well as tropic wetlands, and tablelands, in the hinterland. We are Gold Coast private investigators.
