A Psychologist’s Role in Implementing Parenting Plan Evaluations

Deborah O. Day, Psy.D - Wednesday, January 14, 2015

In 2008, the Florida Statute was changed to require all divorcing parents with minors, or children under the age of eighteen, to develop parenting plans. This requirement was implemented with the best interest for the child(ren) kept in mind. The parenting plan truly makes the parents plan out every part of the child(ren)’s custody, from their daily tasks to who will be responsible for their healthcare. A key component of the parenting plan is the time-sharing schedule—how much time is allowed for each parent. These factors, plus many more, can be difficult to negotiate and finally agree on. When negotiations are not being handled politely or reasonably, our office can provide your Orlando parenting plan evaluations.


Parents who are divorcing and are unable to reach an agreement upon the parenting plan often turn to the courts to provide assistance with resolution. The courts can appoint a parenting plan evaluator who assesses the whole situation to provide the judge with a better understanding of each parent. The evaluator aims to understand the strengths and weaknesses of each parent, the relationships they have with their child(ren), and if other issues, such as child abuse, substance abuse, or mental illness are present. These issues, however difficult they may be, can be addressed during this process. After all of this data is collected, the Orlando psychologist will create a plan with the appropriate recommendations for the situation that are in the best interest of the child(ren).
