Jersey City, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/26/2019 -- As the leading provider of infidelity investigations in Middlesex County, NJ, and the surrounding areas, Cowan Investigations understands that relationships and marriages can sometimes end in divorce or separation. However, when children are involved, and there's a custody agreement, ensuring they're safe and properly cared for becomes paramount. Now, the trusted and licensed private investigators are advising on why a child custody investigation can be crucial in these cases.

Understanding the different types of custody is essential in a child custody case. There is physical custody, which refers to the parent with whom the child lives, and legal custody, which refers to which parent makes legal decisions for the child. Additionally, either type of custody can be sole or joint custody.

The purpose of a child custody investigation is to verify the safety and well-being of the child, which can be done through a variety of methods. These methods include everything from interviews with teachers, neighbors, and friends; gathering evidence of hidden assets or other financial data; performing a thorough background check on the subject; surveillance to look for evidence of unsanitary living conditions, drug or alcohol abuse, gambling, criminal activity; and more.

Child custody investigations are critical to just about any child custody case, but especially for those where one parent believes that the child's health, safety, or well-being might be at stake. Not only can a professional private investigator properly collect evidence, but they're also familiar with the laws surrounding these types of cases, so they can help to provide the information and testimony to the court. Additionally, they can give peace of mind to the hiring parent that their child is safe and healthy.
