At other times, our clients want the agents to do that on people the parents, grandparents, and/or legal guardians of the child(ren) are dating.

Vehicle License Plate Checks:

Our clients tend to hire professionals to run license plates of persons they do not know driving vehicles they are unfamiliar with. Most times they run license plate checks as part of case inquiry, because there is an unfamiliar adult around the child(ren) and our clients want to find out who the person is.

Whenever he runs license plate checks, the results only tell whom the vehicle is registered to and the address listed on the initial registration. That address may not be current, and it does not show any email addresses, social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, dates of birth, names and information of family members/friends/neighbors, etc. Skip traces provide all that information for our clients, which is described in depth below.

Yes, whereas courts and their judges typically do not accept most or all the evidence collected by parties to a child custody case or by their family or friends, they most often do accept the findings and evidence from licensed officials as very credible. This is because they must go through rigorous education classes, training, criminal background checks, etc., to obtain a license in Oklahoma.

They must often testify inside of courtrooms to judges and juries. Dr. Makayla Keefe, the owner of our firm, helps ensure that all her professionals are well-versed in courtroom testimony and child custody investigations.
