I regret you are having difficulties with your child custody issues. I have been where you are -- both as a lawyer and as a parent going through divorce.

"Forensics," under NY domestic relations law, is commonly known as "custody evaluation" practically everywhere else in the USA. The basic process is intended to evaluate each parent and determine which one is more likely to serve the child's best interests.

I see you've just asked to receive a phone consultation. I'll be happy to send you a premium services offer. If you accept, then we can communicate directly. If not, then we can continue in this text-based forum.
