What Is A Child Custody Evaluator? Is It Necessary, And Who Decides When And How To Use Them?
What is it?
A third party is appointed either by the judge or chosen by the parents. This person does multiple interviews with the parents and the children, one by one. This evaluator will also look at the children’s school records, talk to family, friends, teachers, therapists, and whomever they can talk, to get an idea of the dynamics of this family
Is it necessary and who decides when and how to use them?
After the parents have attended mediation, and they are not able to agree as to custody or parenting schedule, the court, most of the time will require that the parents go see a child custody evaluator.
Once the evaluator finalizes all their interviews, they then draft a report that will be given to the judge and sometimes to the parents. This report will include the evaluator’s recommendations to the judge.
- Custody, division, visitation, and time-
- Individual or group therapy for the family or individual family members.
- They may address ways to deal with family conflicts in the future.
- They may address ways for the family and the court to deal with issues that the family is experiencing such as substance abuse or mental health issues.
The court will then most likely follow the recommendations of this evaluator as the court usually uses these evaluators for them to assist in deciding after they had interviewed the entire family and understand the family dynamics.
The court does not have to follow these recommendations, but most of the time they do because they rely on these professionals.
