Custody Evaluations

When parents are going through the divorce process, each parent will have a general idea about how an ideal custody and parenting time arrangement should look. While it is certainly good for each parent to have goals and a vision for his or her children, the differing goals and visions between parents can cause conflict.

Often, conflict can be mitigated by seeking help from a neutral custody evaluator. Through Solution4Kids, Lee Woolery and I provide in-depth gender neutral child custody evaluations. By obtaining recommendations regarding child custody and parenting time, parents can, in the majority of cases, eliminate the need to go to court.

Custody Evaluation Looks at the Entirety of Your Child or Children’s Life

I am a St. Paul child custody lawyer with more than 25 years of experience. Additionally, I am a qualified Early Neutral Evaluator (ENE), Parenting Time Expeditor (PTE) and Parenting Consultant (PC). Lee Woolery is a lawyer specializing in family dispute resolution with 15 years of experience as a Divorce Mediator, Parenting Time Expeditor (PTE), Parenting Consultant (PC), Guardian Ad Litem (GAL), Custody Evaluator and educator for divorcing parents. With our extensive knowledge, we possess comprehensive understanding of the entirety of what comprises a child’s life. To that end, we employ a consultative evaluation process that works to obtain the best fit for the child or children by:

  • Evaluating both parents
  • Interviewing close family members, friends, co-workers and neighbors
  • Visiting each parent at home
  • Advocating for the child or children’s best interests

Through careful analysis and investigation, we are able to obtain a full understanding of each parent’s role in his or her child or children’s life. We then provide a gender neutral recommendation regarding custody and parenting time. In situations where contentious custody issues may have otherwise gone to court, the need for court can be eliminated.
