Home Studies & Parenting Evaluations

Best Interest of the Child

Research has shown that children do best in their psychological, social and emotional development when they are able to have a relationship with both of their parents – father and mother. Unfortunately, not all parents or guardians understand the developmental and emotional importance of both parents being a part of a child’s life, which often leads to custody and visitation disputes.

Of course, there may be other possible issues, factors, suspicions or allegations that may prevent or raise concern about a parent having a relationship with their child, such as abusive conduct, domestic violence, criminal behavior, mental illness, drug or alcohol addiction, which ultimately creates a greater need for professional insight, observation, review, and recommendations on how best to decide the emotional and developmental well being of a child trapped in such unfortunate and painful circumstances.

High conflict divorce, domestic violence, drug addiction and alcoholism, or other issues that may result in child custody disputes are very emotional, complex, and expensive; they should not be done without an attorney, and they should not be done without an expert to help determine what is in the best interest of the child. Andrea Chase, M.S., J.D., and Blythe Mayfield, ATR will be the experts that provide the court with the necessary insight and recommendations that will result in a custody and visitation plan that will truly be in the best interest of the child.
