Family Assessment

What is a Family Assessment?

A Family Assessment is a meeting with an evaluator to gather important information regarding the family. The evaluator will interview the parents to identify whether there are areas of agreement, what issues are in dispute and whether there are parental concerns and parental fitness issues. The evaluator may also gather information from collateral sources.

The evaluator will prepare a report for the Judge that addresses the key issues regarding the family. The report usually includes recommendations regarding legal decision-making and parenting time. The Family Assessment may also include interviews of your child(ren) and/or observations of parents interacting with the child(ren), or interviews of other people involved with the family.
