Child Custody

Child custody and welfare investigations are always the most important and emotional issue in any divorce or custody proceeding. In order to determine the custody of a young child, the court has one overriding standard to consider – the best interests of the child.  If it is not in the best interest of the child to be in the custody of, or have visitation with the other parent, we will find the evidence to support these allegations and help to start the child on the road to a better place. At SSL, our investigators quickly get the facts. These facts, once brought to light, will speak on their own.
