The private investigator service, who often conduct matrimonial and family investigations, have responded to a BBC News report published 6th November 2012 in which child access laws are to change.

We have carried out surveillance on many family visits where the parent and child clearly have a valuable, meaningful and loving relationship. These are the people I feel will benefit from the new changes in the law

A letter to MPs from the Children’s Minister, Edward Timpson announced the proposed changes to child access laws in 2013. The letter states that both parents should have the chance “to play a positive role in their children’s lives when it is safe and in their best interests”. This is good news for fathers’ rights groups but seen as unnecessary by legal experts.

The main concern is for the welfare of the children involved and many believe that the current legislation adequately provides the right protection but others believe the legislation is preventing families from enjoying a meaningful relationship with both parents after divorce or separation.

London Private Investigators is often called upon to conduct matrimonial and family investigations. Family investigations can often contain surveillance sessions to watch children who are part of a separated family that are visiting a parent they do not live with. We are asked to ensure that the child or children are safe and that they are well cared for.

A spokesperson from London Private Investigators said:

“We have carried out surveillance on many family visits where the parent and child clearly have a valuable, meaningful and loving relationship. These are the people I feel will benefit from the new changes in the law”
