Child custody cases that require investigation generally involve the child being in an unsafe environment. It’s important to bring solid evidence of that unsafe environment, and that can often times be challenging.
Making the waters more murky, individual judges apply the unsafe environment standard as they see fit, in applying state law. There are indicators however, that indicate you have a strong case for an unsafe environment; such as:
- child’s emotional or medical needs not being met
- the child witness illegal drug use or alcohol abuse
- physical safety hazards
- physical or emotional abuse
