Magnum Investigations’ highly trained group of private investigators have a greater than 90% success rate when handling child custody investigations. Magnum assists a client by documenting the “lifestyle” that their ex-partner is living, in turn resulting in obtaining Primary Residential Custody of the child/children or modification of an existing child custody agreement.

In a world where the divorce rate is so high, many divorces end with one parent being awarded Primary Residential Custodian by the Family Court. The courts attempt to determine which parent will make the better Primary Guardian, and that is the basis for who wins child custody.

However, sometimes the parent awarded Primary Custody isn’t necessarily the better guardian for the child/children. The judge only has so much information to make the final child custody decision.

Often a divorcee might begin dating someone and sometimes that new boyfriend/girlfriend might be a bad influence on your child’s development. Worse yet, that person could be abusing your child and/or subjecting your child to situations that could jeopardize your child’s safety and welfare.

Hiring The Best Child Custody Private Investigators

Child Custody Investigations in New Jersey & Pennsylvania

With a background in Law Enforcement and specialized training & experience in Narcotics (Drugs) Investigations and Alcohol Investigations, Magnum investigations can be recognized as an “Expert Witness” when testifying in Family Court for a child custody case.

Most other detective companies sell you on the lowest cost, but do not have the Narcotics Training and experience that our agency does. Therefore, such companies can only testify to their observations, whereas Magnum Investigations not only can testify to their observations but more importantly can testify to our expert opinions.

Magnum Investigations has such a successful track record at documenting such narcotic and/or alcohol abuse activities, that several child custody cases result in the Judge imposing Supervised Visitation upon your ex.

Catch Your Ex & Impose Supervised Child Custody

If the Judge feels a parent is not worthy of being alone with a child, the Judge will impose Supervised Visitation, which essentially means that a court-appointed supervisor must be present 100% of the time when the child is with that parent. In other words, upon the drop-off until the pickup, the Supervisor must be present the entire time.

Often once the child/children are dropped off for Supervised Visitation, the supervisor will leave the premises shortly thereafter. In other child custody situations, the Supervisor will permit the parent to leave the premises with the child alone. Sometimes the Parent will leave the premises without the Supervisor and allow others to care for the child while the parent is seeking personal ventures. Nevertheless, all three scenarios are direct violations of the court order.

The Judge will not take your word for it, so the burden is upon you to prove it.

Magnum Investigations can assist you in attempting to document such scenarios, and if successful, will result in revocation of any parental visitation for your ex.

These child custody cases take time to build because enough of a “pattern” needs to be documented to convince the court that there are compelling lifestyle concerns. Therefore, it is both a financial and emotional commitment.

Since so much time is needed to dramatically increase your chances of success, this is not the type of investigation that any New Jersey private detective can handle. The fact of the matter is that most New Jersey detective companies are one-man operations; Magnum is not. Many private detectives and investigators will tackle Cheating Investigation because they are brief and fairly easy in nature. However, Child Custody investigations are much more complex and are longer in duration. Therefore, exposure becomes a serious reality.

Many New Jersey private investigation companies might over-step their experience and make a mistake of handling a Child Custody Investigation alone. Within a short period of time, your ex will likely detect the investigator jeopardizing your entire case.

Magnum Investigations is not a large company, but does have a staff of New Jersey and Pennsylvania private investigators. Therefore Magnum never makes the crucial mistake of following anyone with only one investigator; Magnum investigations always utilizes a team of expert private detectives and investigators, thus resulting in a much higher degree of success without getting caught.

IMPORTANT: There are many companies offering Investigative Services who are NOT Licensed Investigators and are therefore operating illegally. Therefore be careful and demand that the company provide you with their License Number and then verify it through New Jersey at (609) 633-9352 or New York at (212) 417-5800; in PA you must contact the Clerk of Courts in the County where the company claims to be located.
