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).

Orlando Attorneys look to Psychological Affiliates for Aid in Psychological Evaluations and Parenting Plan Assessments

Deborah O. Day, Psy.D - Wednesday, May 28, 2014

Frequently, our group of psychologists are asked to help legal professionals and attorneys with the review of psychological evaluations and parenting plan assessments. When a couple decides to divorce, or have a paternity dispute without amicable resolution, our Orlando psychologists can evaluate parenting plans, as appointed by a court, to aid the judge with recognizing each spouse’s strengths and weaknesses, while considering their interaction with their child. The psychologist who is evaluating the plan can then make recommendations that are in the best interest of the child. With experience in issues of child abuse, relocation disputes, partner violence, psychological illness, or substance abuse and addiction, our psychologists have a depth of knowledge and experience to aid attorneys and families. In the case of psychological evaluation reviews, we base our knowledge on evidence-based therapy models that stand the test of time, such as sex therapy, family psychotherapy, co-parenting therapy, and relationship therapy. We can evaluate assessments of both children and adults, as well as provide these therapeutic psychological services to anyone in need. Because professionals outside the field of psychology primarily oversee these circumstances, our team can help aid in comprehension by creating clarity and providing expertise.
