Family Law

Known foremost for a thorough and comprehensive approach to Child Custody Evaluation, the psychologists at MPA may also administer more abbreviated evaluations of parents or children to assist the Court in understanding the psychological issues posed by parties in these matters.  The divorce adjustment team at MPA has also been the first locally to develop a group treatment program called Making Parents Advocates for highly conflicted parents.  We also offer domestic mediation, reunification therapy, and Parenting Coordination.  In this arena, we are pleased to have several trained Parenting Coordinators, some of whom have been at the forefront of developing and training others in this valuable intervention. 

In addition, we have expertise in conducting psychological assessment for CHINS/Termination of Parental Rights (TPR) cases when information about parental capacity, current functioning and prognosis may aid the Court in ruling on matters of such magnitude.
