Providing Adoption and Child Custody Evaluations with the Child in Mind
Social Study Solutions will continue to offer services as a Child Advocate performing evaluations with the Child in Mind as they have since 2007.
Serving Texas First
Serving the Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Harris, Hood, Hunt, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, Rockwall, Tarrant, Wise and Guadalupe County County Family Law Courts.
Adoption and child custody evaluations have been performed for Puerto Rican, New York, Oklahoma, California and Florida Judges in the last year as well.
Child Custody Evaluations
Jessica L. Rogers, MA, LPC, provides adoption or child custody evaluation in reference to divorce, divorce modifications, custody disputes, visitation schedules, step-parent adoption, and adoption.
It is my mission to assist families in finding a common ground in which they can co-parent their children with a minimal amount of disruption in the children’s lives.
I can also assist in bringing families together by assisting families through adoption. My goal in performing these duties is a quick turn around in reporting in terms of an adoption or child custody evaluation, so that the families may continue in a new fashion in the best interest of the child. This quick turn around will allow the judges to close cases and clear their dockets in a more timely manner.
My fees are comparable to other social workers in the field, $1,500 – $1,600 a side, yet my turn around in reporting is timelier. Written reports are generally completed in 10 to 12 weeks from the date of payment.
What is an Adoption or
Child Custody Evaluation?
It is a prepared report by a "specialist" licensed by the State of Texas in a "human services field of study" for the judges' consideration at a dispositional hearing. The report can also be used to reach an agreement in mediation. Such reports review each party in the suit by balanced interviews, observations, collateral contacts, and letters of reference. The basic premise of the social study will entail an evaluation of the home environment, assessment of the relationships and behaviors, a review of criminal history, and family history.
