Child Custody

Child Custody

Separation of parents, resulting in an unknown environment for a child can be one of the most excruciating experiences for a family to go through. Parental separation doesn’t only cause conflict and rift between two individuals, but the results of such an act can directly affect the children as well. In such cases, one of the issues that arise is custody. Parents, once separated, wish to have the sole custody of their children. They become even more wary of joint custody when they have extreme trust issues regarding the behavior of their ex-partners with their children.

Our team is trained to discover evidence and obtain critical information to provide our clients effective solutions to their situations. Our skilled private investigators have handled thousands of complex cases, many of which are tied to enormous legal, emotional or financial outcomes.

Our investigators use a combination of technology, the internet and advanced investigative strategies to solve sophisticated problems and provide actionable intelligence for Individuals, Law Firms and Corporations.


A Private Investigator is a licensed professional who is often hired to find information or evidence needed to solve significant problems for their clients using resources, techniques, and tradecrafts which are not typically known or made available to the general public. Private Investigators are usually the end of the line after you’ve explored every resource and when you have tried everything you know and still come up dry… that’s when you need to hire a good PI!

Hiring a Private Investigator can be very intimidating, especially since most people have never done it before. The first step is to carefully review their online presence to see if they have a current and up to date website. You are looking to see if there is any information about them online that you can find (such as achievements, reviews, profiles in trade organizations or associations, news articles, etc). You also want to verify the agency is licensed and insured. It is also important to make sure that it is an actual company and not just one investigator looking for extra cash in their retirement. You want a professional team (even if it is a small one) with the resources, qualified staff, technology, and equipment to handle your case correctly and keep your costs affordable. You also want to make sure they either specialize in or offer a specialist in the type of case you need to hire them for. Make sure you are not hiring a “jack of all trades and a master of none”!

There are dozens if not hundreds of types of Private Investigators. It’s not just a guy in a trench coat or a Hawaiian shirt with a “paparazzi camera” sitting in his car looking to get a photo of a cheater or someone faking a hurt back. They use industry resources, skills from their previous backgrounds, security clearance, and specialized equipment or software to procure information, evidence, and/or intelligence. Some of the best even operate at a level comparable to government agents. Typically, private investigators handle cases and situations that are either civil in nature or do not meet the threshold for law enforcement to get involved.

There are a lot of websites online that display the costs of “Private Investigators”. However, most of them are actually hourly rates for their employees and not that of the Agency you are hiring. This is because many get their information from hiring websites where hourly rates for the jobs the agencies are looking to fill and base their information on what their employees are paid instead of what it actually costs to hire that agency. The typical Private Investigation Rates for an Agency in Florida can range from $75-$125 per hour for domestic cases and can go above $150-$350 per hour for specialized services such as various types of forensics, cyber investigations, and specialized subject matter experts. Many Private Investigative Agencies maintain equipment and software that exceeds $100k or more and like any professional service, you get what you pay for!

Detectives are sworn-in law enforcement officers who work for local or state law enforcement agencies. They operate on public resources, and their primary objectives are to “find and arrest” bad guys and have the full resources of their departments at their disposal! Private Investigators however have no police powers, no authority to arrest, and no ability to call in backup if they are in trouble. Private investigators are hired by individuals, companies, and attorneys to handle cases that are either civil in nature or outside of the parameters which law enforcement is able to handle. This can be either due to a lack of department resources to allocate a detective based on the perceived severity of the case, or a case requiring a specialist that goes above and beyond the resources made available to a law enforcement agency.

Private Investigators come in all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds. Their services can range from corporate espionage to crime scene and accident reconstruction, DNA forensics, physical security, and specialized cyber sleuths to digital forensics or undercover surveillance professionals. Any time where there is a potential liability, misconduct, criminal act or need information and intelligence to get to the bottom of a situation, there is typically a private investigator who specializes in that area of expertise.


Mark A., Tampa, FL | Attorney, 16 years

I have worked with Southern Recon on several investigations. He is an excellent investigator who always gets the job done no matter how complex or dangerous the situation. His fees are very reasonable and he usually puts in more hours than he gets paid for in order to make sure he does a professional job. I highly recommend Southern Recon Agency.

Tina G., Ontario, Canada

Matt provided me with superior service. He handled my investigation in a very professional manner and was always available for me 24/7. He helped solve my case and provided me with accurate evidence proving the suspicion of my husband’s infidelity. I highly recommend his services. Words cannot express the gratitude I have for his services!

Chris G., Tampa, Fl

I requested a background investigation on person that I was looking to conduct business with. I corresponded with the professionals at the Agency over email and the telephone. At no time, was I confused or concern about the process of this investigation. The process was thoroughly explained. Matt Aubin potentially saved me thousands of dollars by giving me an accurate understanding of who I was looking to do business with. Needless to say, I will not be conducting any business with this individual. I am extremely grateful for the work performed by Matt and the agency. It was worth every penny. The level of service provided exceeded my expectations.

Donnie C., Orlando, Fl

These folks are professional and will get results for you quickly. They are not the run of the mill grinding hours for billing people that often fill this profession. Thanks!
