Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a Parenting or Custody evaluation cost, and who pays for it?

A typical Parenting evaluation will cost between $2000 and $5000 dollars. The cost can be considerably more if there are multiple issues that are contested, or if there are allegations of sex abuse, child abuse, or domestic abuse.

Costs for the evaluation are often split between the parties involved, sometimes on an equal basis, sometimes split according to the relative income levels of the parties. Be aware that evaluation fees must often be paid up front, in advance of the evaluation.
