About West Coast Behavioral's Parenting Evaluation

You will likely be required to take part in a Parenting Evaluation if you are involved in a Parenting Plan dispute and are an essential part of any court proceeding concerning childrenThe judge will not meet with your child, except in rare cases. He will also not visit your home and will never talk in-depth to you.

Parents who are unable to agree on where their child will live often don’t agree on other matters.  To help you determine the family’s situation, the judge will need to hear from an impartial third party.

These are a few reasons why courts rely upon parenting evaluations to determine what is best for your child.

What to Bring and What to Expect at Your Parenting Evaluation

Once you’ve completed your paperwork online, you can expect to be in the office for approximately an hour. You may want to block a little extra time off of your schedule to contend with traffic, etc.  Everyone goes through a tough time.

Please remember not to spend all your time blaming the other parent. Instead, talk to us about the positive aspects of your home, your relationship, and your strengths as a parent. Focus on the positive aspects you can offer your child, and everything will work out fine.

Scheduling Your Parenting Evaluation

COVID-19 Update Due to the surge in COVID-19 cases, we are taking extra precautions

We are prepared 

We are committed to providing safe and professional services to our customers. The service we provide can be of importance even during natural disasters or global pandemics, like the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We have business continuity plans in place, so our teams can handle challenges and perform their work during difficult situations. 


Extra safety precautions

With confirmed cases of COVID-19 growing in our service territory, our employees are taking extra safety precautions to protect you and the public at large. When work requires us to be in close contact with a customer, we will take the following steps: 

  • We will ask customers if anyone at home is under self-isolation for the COVID-19 virus or experiencing flu-like symptoms. 
  • If a customer is under self-isolation for the COVID-19 virus, we will postpone the work until after the customer's isolation period ends. 
  • If the work must be completed, we will attempt to complete sessions via phone, video, etc. This is a step we are taking out of an abundance of caution.
  • If a customer requests that our employees wear a face mask or gloves, they will comply whenever possible and practical. 

Steps you can take to mitigate the spread of COVID-19

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash if a tissue is not available. Cough or sneeze into the sleeve of your shirt or elbow – not your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Minimize contact with people who are coughing or look ill.
  • Consider your travel plans and check with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for outbreak updates.
