Child Support Investigations
Whether or not parents of a child brought into this world resulted from of a close relationship that fell apart, or one that never materialized, a child depends on responsible adults for their survival and well-being. Understandably it can be a traumatic experience for both the parents and child to go through. A mother or father caring for the child will have the added responsibility of caring for the child emotionally, physically and financially. When certain circumstances around a court order have changed child support investigations can help try to determine evidence of what’s referred to as a change in circumstances, such as someone’s employment status, sources of income, residential address and assets owned.
