The Court may order the parties in a disputed child custody case to submit to a psychological examination. The evaluator evaluates the parties and the children and make a recommendation to the Court regarding custody.
The evaluator is an important witness. The evaluator may administer tests and interviews to determine the level of parenting skills, maturity, patience, and attitude, of each parent. They will examine the bond between the parent and child and identify mental health disorders.
