Family Court Services

Family Court Services provides evaluations of custody arrangements requested by Superior Court judges and commissioners. In Domestic Relations cases where parents are in conflict over visitation or residential placement of their children, the court can order all parties to the dispute to meet with the Family Court Evaluator. The parties will be interviewed and they may be directed to psychological or other testing, after which the evaluator provides the judicial officer with a written report of findings.

Parties referred to Family Court Services must complete these forms. Please call Superior Court Administration at 564.397.2150 if you have any questions specific to your referral. Unless waived due to a finding of indigency, each party referred to Family Court Services must pay a $275 fee to the Clerk's Office.
