Family law examinations are almost always court appointment or start as "one-sided" examinations that provide enough concern to warrant a motion to examine all parties.

The focus of the psychological examination involves custody placement and recommendations for visitation. The order from the court requests a full psychological evaluation of both adults when there is an accusation of a mental disorder, neglect, or abuse.

Other frequent orders from the court request an evaluation of all parties for the best interests of the children in custody and visitation.

 

Evidence-based examinations test for parenting capacity, neglect, abuse, criminality, substance abuse, and the parenting abilities specific for special needs children.

When parents show no psychological disabilities, recommendations are based upon the developmental age and needs of the children to determine custody and visitation. Collaborative law for divorce, estate division, custody and visitation, is offered in low conflict marital dissolution. A team approach using attorneys, financial experts, and mental health experts uses the Texas model of collaborative law.

 

Reports are relevant to accusations or psychological impairments that have specific effects on the best interests of the children.
