examples of what we can do, and have done, are as follows:
Child Custody Investigations

Do you fear for your child’s safety and well-being in the care of the person who has been awarded
custody? Let us help you investigate to determine the quality of treatment and care that your child is receiving. We will
gather evidence that will set your mind at ease or build a strong legal case to have your child removed from the situation.

not right. If any of the items in the following list apply to your child’s situation, it is possible that they are not
being cared for appropriately:
- Abduction plans

people living in the house

We can provide video/photo documentation and witness testimony if necessary.
Let’s face it. Nothing is more important than the safety and welfare of an innocent child.
Unfortunately in many situations where custody or visitation periods are granted to your former spouse, or the biological
party that you share parentage with, you are left to wonder about the safety of your child or children. Are your children
being left alone at home? Are they riding around at 1:00 a.m. in the backseat of a car while the person responsible for their
care is drinking? Is there a third party sleeping over at the residence while your children are there?
At The Hawkins Group we share your concern and we sincerely
want to help you. The court is guided by one standard - the best interest of the child. Unfortunately, many times the court

identify third party persons who are given access to the children. The surveillance activity can also be supported by any
number of fact-finding investigations designed to determine the background, character, activities and associations to assist
in evaluation the other party’s overall fitness.
Many divorced or single parents have misgivings about the fitness of the other parent. These concerns can
range from children expressing reluctance or refusal to go with the other parent for visitation or custody exchanges, to a
parent's abuse of drugs or alcohol. It is often possible for a parent with substance abuse issues, or other character
flaws, to present themselves as competent to the court, necessitating the need for thorough documentation of their unsuitable
lifestyle. Our child custody specialists will help establish allegations of child neglect, child abuse, child endangerment
and unsafe living conditions. Our investigations are fully documented and presented in a professional investigative report,
and our specialists stand ready to provide expert testimony before the court.
The Hawkins Group can also assist you with child support investigations. These investigations amount
to a search for assets, and are undertaken to determine the non-custodial parent's ability to pay support. We identify
and locate all the assets owned by the parent and obtain proof of ownership. Our investigation includes making inquiries to
determine if there are possible hidden assets, or funds that have been transferred to other locations in an effort to conceal

Infidelity, cheating, unfaithful, affair, and adultery. However, if you or your client are the ones using these words to describe
the concern about a spouse or significant other, there are also tremendous emotions attached with uttering those words. Fear,
pain, & heartbreak are words we hear often from our clients. We understand the emotional situation that any domestic client
finds himself or herself in when the concerns about an unfaithful mate arise. We also understand that it is often the unknowing
or uncertainty about the mate's activities that cause the greatest emotional stress. At The Hawkins Group, we understand
the need to know the truth. In obtaining and documenting the truth, we also seek to help provide information and answers to
assist you or your client in making the right decisions in these potentially life-altering situations. Decisions made from
