Families going through a divorce involving children and custody issues often cannot reach agreement on custody and visitation issues on their own. When they seek resolution through the legal system, courts frequently order comprehensive child custody evaluations by mental health professionals who are competent in this niche area of practice. This chapter reviews the education and training needed to competently perform child custody evaluations. It explains the business aspects of this practice and reviews the joys and challenges of this type of practice. Resources are provided for mental health practitioners interested in developing this niche area of practice.
