Child Custody Recommendations

Child custody evaluations are a very common process. Yet despite their common nature, it can still be a very nerve-racking ordeal for a parent to experience.

A child custody evaluation is a process in which a mental health professional, a psychologist, evaluates you, your child, and your co-parent to make a recommendation to the court regarding custody and visitation.

The purpose of all custody evaluations is to ensure that the needs of children are being met as best as possible. This assessment requires the psychologist to pay particular attention to the skills and deficits of parenting attributes in tandem with the psychological needs of the child.

Based on the information that is gathered from these observations, the evaluator will generate a report to pass along to the judge hearing the case. This report will include all of their findings and recommendations regarding how custody should be awarded.
