We are a group of licensed psychologists who are forensic specialists providing custody evaluations and other forensic psychological services to the Courts, the legal community, individuals and families.
What is Forensic Psychology? Forensic psychology is the application of psychological science to help answer legal questions. It can involve evaluations, expert court testimony, and consultations. Our psychologists have exceptional training and many years of experience in this highly specialized field.
Choosing Your Expert: Choosing the right forensic expert can be one of the most critical decisions you make. Not every psychologist knows the intricacies of conducting a forensic psychological evaluation for the legal community and the Courts. When selecting your expert you should consider their specialized training, their experience in dealing with the specific legal questions confronting you, their knowledge of the legal standards, and their experience with the Court and with legal procedures.
Why Retain a Psychologist? Licensed psychologists conduct evaluations that comply with guidelines established by the American Psychological Association, the State of New Jersey Board of Psychological Examiners, and the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts. The guidelines established by these organizations set the standards for forensic psychologists. Only psychologists use psychological tests as part of the evaluation process. The test results can significantly impact the overall conclusions and recommendations.
The Evaluation: A thorough and professional forensic psychological evaluation involves collecting data from interviews, tests, and outside collateral sources which may include schools, doctors, hospitals, and others that have first-hand knowledge of the parents and children involved in the family dispute. All the information gathered is weighed by the expert, who will determine how much it contributes to the overall conclusions and recommendations.
