Does The Court Have To Follow The Child Evaluator’s Recommendation?
First let’s talk about what a child evaluator is. This is basically a third-party professional that conducts interviews with the child, the parents, friends, family teachers, etc. to determine the best custody situation for that particular child or children. They are often times ordered by the court after the parents have attended mediation and the parents are not able to agree to a custody or to a parenting schedule. The court usually then mandates that the parents go to have an evaluator present to get recommendations from this evaluator. The court does not have to follow the recommendations but most of the times they do as they really look favorable upon these professionals and they do follow the recommendations most of the time.
