Phoenix Custody Evaluations Lawyer

A child custody evaluation can be extremely useful when one parent feels that there are questions regarding the parenting abilities of the other parent. While custody evaluations are generally conducted to shed more light on the circumstances in which a child is being raised, they can also be mandatory if a court feels it is necessary because of allegations that a parent may not be fit due to:

  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Drug abuse

What Is A Custody Evaluation?

In a custody or legal decision-making evaluation, the parents typically agree on a mental health professional from a court-approved list to perform the evaluation. That professional is appointed by the court and interviews the parents and the child. This usually includes the administration of personality tests. The mental health professional provides the court with a detailed report that recommends which parent should be awarded legal decision-making.
