This comprehensive guide presents the literature on child custody evaluations in a coherent, logically integrated format that can be applied directly to practice.

Jonathan Gould proposes new assessment models that are based on studies of the 10 percent of divorced couples who pursue resolution of custody disputes. The book comprises a conceptual framework - history, systems, standards and rules, and business/office management issues, the evaluation process - practical hands-on guidance, and suggestions for the evaluator preparing for the court.
