Custody Evaluation

Parents who don't agree on a parenting plan for their children may be referred to a custody evaluator. The evaluator conducts interviews, assesses the parties' respective situations, and makes a recommendation to the court on how to resolve custody and/or parenting time (visitation) disputes. The evaluator is chosen by the parties with approval from the court, and is usually paid for by the parties.
