Obtaining custody of your children during a divorce is a complex procedure that depends on several factors.

The private detectives of Riviera Private Investigation (RPI) are here to help you obtain the evidence necessary to defend your interests in court.

We will implement discreet and effective strategies to gather reliable information about your spouse's behavior.

Here are some general steps to consider, but it is important to consult a family law attorney for legal advice specific to your situation:

  1. Hire a Lawyer: The first step is usually to hire a family law attorney. An experienced professional can guide you through the legal process, assess your chances of obtaining custody, and educate you about your rights and responsibilities.

  2. Understanding Types of Custody : There are different types of custody, including physical custody (where the child lives) and legal custody (who makes important decisions for the child). Understanding these distinctions is essential to developing a custody strategy.

  3. Develop a Parental Care Plan : It is often recommended to work with your attorney to develop a parental custody plan that details time spent with each parent, visitation rights, and parental responsibilities. A well-developed plan can strengthen your position during the procedure.

  4. Promote Communication with the Other Parent : Courts generally encourage open and cooperative communication between parents. Fostering an environment where both parents can work together in the best interests of the child may be viewed favorably by the court.

  5. Determining the Best Interests of the Child : Courts focus on the “best interests of the child” when making custody decisions. Present evidence demonstrating that the custody requested is in the best interests of the child in terms of stability, emotional support, education, etc.

  6. Participate in Mediations and Evaluations: Some courts require participation in mediations or family assessments to help parents resolve disputes and develop a custody plan.

  7. Prepare Testimonies and Evidence : Your attorney can advise you on what testimony and evidence to prepare to support your custody request. This may include third-party testimonies, financial statements, or evidence demonstrating your involvement in the child's life.Call on a licensed private detective firm, such as Riviera Private Investigation, to advise and assist you in gathering evidence and testimony admissible in court.

  8. Be Ready to Negotiate : In many cases, custody can be decided by a negotiated agreement between the parties. Be prepared to discuss and negotiate while keeping the child's best interests in mind.

  9. Follow Legal Procedures : Follow all legal procedures and meet deadlines established by the court. Missing deadlines can impact your business.

  10. Be patient : Custody procedures can be long. Be patient and continue to work with your attorney to protect the rights and interests of your child(ren).

Every situation is unique, so it is crucial to consult a lawyer as well as a private investigator (the two are complementary and work in partnership) to obtain advice tailored to your particular situation.
