Care and contact medico-legal assessments and report writing

Care and contact assessments aim to establish the conditions of care which serve the best interests of the children of divorced parents. Although the decision to divorce is valid and can be the only healthy option, it must nevertheless be managed very carefully in order for the children’s lives to be shaped appropriately.

The assessment of families aims to identify the child’s specific needs, and to offer advice as to what structure of co-parenting might be most suitable for the sake of meeting these needs. Medico-legal assessment of this nature is done face-to-face, and involves the children and all key caregivers.
