Your child custody attorney may use a variety of types of evidence, including documents, character evidence, witnesses , and expert reports. The client is the primary witness in any custody action. As a result the client's testimony is often the primary piece of evidence considered by the Court. Naturally, the Court will expect the client's testimony to be self serving. For this reason, it is vital to support the client's testimony with documentary evidence.
One of the best ways to ensure you will be successful in protecting your children is to be prepared and organized with the necessary evidence.
Your attorney may also utilize other professionals, either as consultants or witnesses in your case. For example, only certain trained professionals can testify about the educational needs of a child with learning disabilities or behavioral problems. These experts may advise your attorney regarding specific aspects of your case. The experts may also be called upon to testify on your behalf at a trial or hearing.
The Court may also appoint experts to assist in the Court's custodial decisions. In Jefferson County, the Family Courts regularly appoint custodial evaluators to make recommendations to the Court. The evaluators are normally practicing child psychologists who have special expertise in custodial matters.
