custody evaluations

Fifth Avenue Counseling & Consulting provides custody evaluations to parents and courts needing assistance in determining custody and visitation schedules. A custody evaluation is a process that assesses each parent’s parenting skills with each child in a family. Evaluations are usually requested when parents are unable to work out their own parenting plan and a recommendation is needed by the court. Custody evaluators are impartial and never an advocate for either parent. A custody evaluation involves interviews, observations of children and parents and psychosocial testing with the goal of determining what is in the best interest and welfare of the child or children. Oregon law (ORS 107.137) defines the specific issues evaluators are to address when considering child custody.

Our goal for custody evaluations is to provide a safe environment for parents and children undergoing a custody evaluation and to provide an impartial and balanced custody recommendation to families, attorneys and the court system. Fifth Avenue has additional expertise in working with families where alcohol and drug abuse have contributed to the parental separation and divorce and custody process.

Our commitment is to offer exceptional service at competitive rates. For more information our custody evaluation services or to make an appointment to begin the a custody evaluation please contact us at or call us at 503-295-7974.
