There are at least three parties involved in a custody dispute, the two parents and the child. The challenge of the Family Court, The Federal Magistrates Court, The Federal Circuit Court, is to do what is best for the child, or children. It is an emotion charged issue where even an amicable separation can become a hostile dispute as property settlements and child support issues arise, parents start with new partners, grandparents attempt to maintain contact and life interferes. A parent may identify a risk, but the court needs proof, evidence, not just a bald statement; if there is a risk to a child, children, or an unsavory environment, you need to prove the risk, the threat; private investigator surveillance, factual investigation (taking affidavits of witnesses), private investigator research, may add weight to a claim.

There are times when the initial stages of a child custody investigation, child access investigation, are about locating a parent who has fled with a child, or children. This location is crucial, as surveillance needs a start point, the service of documents needs a location, child access first needs to know the area where the child or children are; the only way to know, and prove, the conditions a child or children are living under is to know the location. The investigation may commence as a missing person inquiry, to find them, first.
A child custody investigation, a child access investigation, is not about the rights of the father, nor the rights of the mother, the Family Law court, The Federal Circuit Court, is concerned with the rights of the child, acting in the best interest of the child. For the client the investigation is about emotion. For the private investigator it is about evidence. We understand that, for the client, this is about emotion, but for the private investigator this is about evidence, a Gold Coast child custody investigator must focus on what can be proved.
If you are looking at taking custody of children, fighting for custody of children, for the return of a child or children, or access, you must satisfy the court that it is in the best interest of the child, or children, or that what you claim is correct, or what the other side claims is incorrect.

A child custody investigation, to identify a breach, may not be the primary aim of the client, but it is a legal stepping stone, to building a credible case, for custody or increased access, or to protect the child, or children. A private investigator generally cannot conduct child custody surveillance in, nor install cameras in, someones house; we can only record in a premises, or from a premises, with the permission of the person in charge of the premises (privacy/trespass), otherwise we need to be in a public place. We can conduct lawful child custody investigation surveillance, private investigator surveillance, recording what can be seen, and provide surveillance journals of the investigators observations, what they saw and heard (both of which can be used as evidence in a court, we cannot legally record what we hear, but we can provide evidence of it), in compliance with the law, so it can be admitted as evidence. The surveillance journal is combined with video evidence, or still images, supporting the investigators observations. Often we are looking for evidence of child custody breaches, to provide the evidence, the proof, that adds weight to an argument, where someone is doing, or not doing, something in compliance with an order, or for evidence relating to treatment or care of children, or an unapproved or inappropriate relationship or association. To prove something to a satisfactory standard takes more than allegations, it takes supporting evidence, we are there to search for this evidence. For some it is drug use, or dealing from where the children are, for others the children are left in the care of another whilst the parent goes off and does their own thing, no cases are the same, but there are often similarities with regards the treatment of children, or the risks.
Child Custody, child access, child welfare
The objective may be obtaining custody, access, or protecting the child, and evidence of a breach, or a poor environment, is a stepping stone, there are often risks that you cannot 'prove' because it is occurring inside a residence where surveillance isn't permitted, and independent witnesses don't exist. So the investigator works around the peripheries to find supporting evidence, or other examples that attack the credibility of person placing the child at risk. A child's allegations, without supporting evidence, under circumstances where questions about coaching can be raised, lack weight, when presented on their own.

A child custody investigation, a child access investigation, child welfare investigation, is generally a discreet inquiry, or private investigator surveillance, to gather information; this investigation may sometimes have a specific objective to prove a behaviour, a risk to children, a lie, a breach of an order; the investigation is sometimes to see what is happening when a child is not in the care of a particular parent. If conducting private investigator surveillance it is imperative that as much evidence as possible is gathered before the child custody surveillance is revealed. Once you have let the other party become aware of the surveillance they will become wary, and may change their behaviors in public, making it difficult to impossible to conduct further surveillance, gather further evidence, without leaving the subject alone for an extended period. Surveillance is designed to not be intrusive, and a wary target makes it harder. On occasion a background check may also be warranted.
Another area of investigation relating to children, and custody, is often the concern about the use of drugs by not just the adults, but children. It seems the use of 'ice', cannabis, 'speed' (amphetamine), 'party' drugs like ecstasy, even the older drugs like heroin and cocaine, or even simply drinking, is increasing in a sub group with other issues. It is hard to understand where children are lawfully getting the money to afford the drugs. Some children are swapping sex for drugs, some are dealing, some are couriers, some are thieves. Drug use is not always apparent as drug addiction, the lose of weight, associated with amphetamine based drugs like 'speed', 'ice' is attractive to some, the apparent ability to stay awake for long periods and work feverishly makes speed attractive to others.
Drug issues in society are doing damage to the structure of families. Some 13, 14, 15 year old girls are fighting with family, and moving out of home, and into a 'shared' unit where drugs and sex are part of the mix (including sex with older men, for drugs or money).
