Child Custody Evaluations

The primary purpose and main focus of the custody evaluation is to determine what is in the best interests of the child.  A competent assessment will include a skilled clinical interview and history of the family dynamics.

Generally one parent doesn’t win and the other parent lose custody.  Rather, each parent's role with the children may be outlined, and as a result, one may get to spend more time or less time with the children.

Dr. Larry Friedberg is our guest and he explains the custody evaluation process during this program.  www.DivorceSourceRadio.com
