Custody & Access Assessments
Are you going through a separation or divorce? This can be a difficult time for you and your children. We understand the emotional distress and pressures that come with dividing a family unit. The Family Psychology Place can help you sort through all the legal documentation of custody issues. Our unbiased therapists can provide access assessments to help the courts make an informed decision on who should get custody of the child/children involved in the separation.
What are some steps involved in an access assessment?
- Psychological and cognitive tests
- Quality of parenting is assessed
- Evaluates the interrelationships among the family members in question
- Looks at the attachment between the child and each parent in various situations
We take every step to ensure our assessment is detailed and thorough resulting in what is best for the child. Your child should be in a safe, comfortable environment where they feel connected to the parent they are living with. Assessments may point to shared custody if that is in the best interest of the child.
Our psychologists do not take these decisions lightly so we take the time needed to truly evaluate every detail of your family life before expressing our opinion.
