Preparing for Court, Child Custody Hearing
When preparing for court, a child custody hearing, custody of children application hearing, gather your evidence first; we are a private investigator service, experienced in preparing evidence, phone 1300 966 103, email [email protected], or 24/7 online Contact Us, free quotes.
The time to prepare for a court hearing, a custody hearing, is prior to the application, or immediately you have the application served on you. You are going to need all available medical records, any academic awards or other school information bout the children, photographs and videos (including holidays or visits with relatives), any messages between parents, your journal entries (you should start a journal immediately you separate, or there is any inkling of a dispute). You need affidavits of friends and associates, and, importantly, evidence of any allegations you may raise in court.
The court has not interest in your emotions, it runs on evidence, and making decisions in the best interest of the child, or children. Their best interest is judged by things such as not being exposed to violence, including domestic violence, not being exposed to an unsafe environment, or risks. You must work hard to avoid falling into emotional traps, as this can be a form of leverage applied by the other party.
When in court, hopefully you have a good solicitor; if you feel you have, then be guided by them. Not all solicitors are equal, in Family Law matters; I would note nor are all private investigators, when you get a "cheap" deal be wary, the person may not the required experience. The private investigator can conduct interviews, gather affidavits, and conduct private investigator surveillance to gather real world evidence of risks, and behaviours. What we do is legal, the evidence can be used for court.
Remember, the time to prepare for court, to start gathering evidence, is before you actually start the action, or immediately you receive the child custody application from the other party. Using a private investigator, a private detective, is a method of both giving yourself distance, to remove claims of bias, and also to provide evidence from a professional third party. Once you commence the action you may need to gather evidence to prove, or disprove, something raised in court. Again the time to start this is as early as practicable, before behaviours change.
