The home evaluation is mostly intended to provide a big-picture look at the environment where your child lives or could live.
They’ll want to see that your child has an appropriate place to sleep, that the home is clean and free of obvious hazards like exposed wiring or signs of rodent or pest infestation.
You should have a well-stocked pantry and refrigerator with age-appropriate food available.
During a divorce, many parents end up in what will be short-term occupancy in apartments that may not be to the standards they are used to.
Evaluators take this into consideration when they visit, recognizing that divorce is a transitional time.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you prepare for a home evaluation and make sure you present the best environment possible for your custody matter.
