Child Custody Evaluation

When divorcing parents (or parents who are not married) have difficulty coming to agreement on a parenting arrangement, they turn to the courts for resolution.  In turn, lawyers and judges may turn to a psychologist to do a child custody evaluation.  The report which is sent to the court may also reviewed by the attorneys and parents.

A child custody evaluation itself is a complex procedure, potentially leading to an attorney's questions and concerns regarding:

    * Procedures followed in the evaluation

    * Information gathered

    * Balance within the report

    * Interpretations within the report

    * Conclusions

    * Recommendations

With extensive experience in doing child custody evaluations, Dr. Northman can help an attorney assess the strengths and limitations of a child custody evaluation report, in turn enabling the attorney to better guide the client.
