Matters of custody are often very volatile and sensitive, which is an indication of their importance. When you go to court over a child custody issue, the judge will do what he or she believes is in the best interest of the child, but the Judge does not know your family or your situation.

If, after the divorce, you have been unable to reach an agreement regarding your children’s custody status with the other parent, the family court judge deciding your case in Northwest Arkansas might order a custody evaluation. A custody evaluation is the process in which a mental health professional, usually a psychologist, evaluates you, your children and your ex-spouse in order to make a custody and visitation recommendation to the court deciding your case. The court will often take the recommendation of this evaluation and grant custody accordingly. Contact one of our attorneys today to find out more about the custody evaluation process.
