 Posted on July 21, 2015 in Child Custody

child custody, custody evaluation, Illinois family law attorneyDivorce can be an incredibly stressful experience for both the parties and their children. Deciding the best option when establishing an arrangement for child custody can be an especially delicate process that many find difficult. During the course of a divorce, the court may require an impartial third party to evaluate the situation in order to decide the best child custody arrangement for any children. This process usually involves several meetings between the evaluator, both parties and the children in order to determine what type of living situation would best suit the children’s needs.

Working with a Court-Appointed Evaluator

Working with the court-appointed evaluator can be nerve-wracking, but it is important to remember that cooperating with the evaluator will go a long way in helping produce the best possible outcome in a child custody case. Always be on time for your appointments when meeting with an evaluator to demonstrate that you take the process seriously and respect his or her time. Be friendly with the evaluator, but remain professional. Remember also that he or she is also there to help you address any concerns you may have around your child’s custody, and may be able to answer any questions.
