During a divorce process feelings and emotions are high as there are many changes and stresses happening at one time. However, when children are involved, things become much more complicated. During a divorce process it is important that the court evaluate and assess both parents and consider their mental health and ability to care for their children. Hence, it is important to determine what is in the best interest of the child/children. The State of Florida no longer awards one parent custody of the children; instead, there are parenting plans which include timesharing schedules. One parent may have the children more than the other, or the parents may have equal time with the children. Because the court must determine what timesharing schedule is in the best interests of the children, many times a social investigation will be performed.
It is best that this investigation be completed by a mental health professional, one who has no prior relationship with either of the parties or the children to ensure objectivity. At RK Care Group, we offer this service in English, Spanish, or Hebrew and it can be provided throughout South Florida. Our social investigators are a neutral and impartial third party, thus his or her opinions and recommendations will have meaning in the court. The social Investigators here at RK Care Group will evaluate both parents, including their lifestyles, and make a recommendation as to the amount of time each child should spend with each parent. Furthermore, the social investigator will outline all findings and recommendations in a thorough report that is presented to the court. In addition, he or she will submit a proposed parenting plan that best fits the needs of the children.
