The Do's And Don'ts Of Custody Evaluations

Posted on

Some couples cannot agree on anything during the divorce process, and must allow a judge to make decisions in court. For matters related to minor children, family court judges often turn to professional custody evaluators to help them decide what is best for the child when it comes to child custody and visitation. Evaluators are specially-trained mental health experts who interview concerned parties, including children, their parents, close relatives, pediatricians and therapists and present their findings to the judge. Judges rely on these evaluations for important decisions, so it is in your best interest to understand the do's and don'ts of custody evaluations.



Rely on your divorce attorney or family lawyer to guide you successfully through the evaluation process and offer additional help and advice.
