Surveillance operations conducted throughout California to assist in assessing parental suitability in child custody cases. is an investigative service provided by Paula Drake Investigations, located in the San Jose/San Francisco Bay Area of California.

We conduct in depth investigations and covert surveillance operations with an aim to provide evidence to assist the courts in determining the suitability of parents in child custody cases.

As a Child Protective Services Investigator, Probation Officer, and founder of a female owned and operated private detective agency, I know that the Family Courts of Santa Clara and San Mateo counties favor shared custody. Many parents have misgivings, however, concerning the fitness of the other parent. These concerns range from children "acting out" by expressing reluctance or refusal to go with the other parent at the actual exchange of custody, to a parent's abuse of drugs or alcohol. It is also often possible for a parent with substance abuse issues to present themselves as competent to the court, necessitating the documentation of their deleterious lifestyle. We can assist you in each of these examples using expert surveillance and video when appropriate.
