Custody Evaluations

Dr. Abrams has extensive experience evaluating all issues associated with custody evaluations, including but not limited to:

  • custody disputes
  • relocation
  • domestic violence
  • parental alienation
  • alternative family structures

Dr. Abrams utilizes a unique rapid format to conduct his evaluations. His entire process – from the initial  interview to a completed report – usually takes only 4 to 6 weeks. As a comparison, other evaluators in the New York Metro area typically require six months to complete the process. To accomplish this rapid format, Dr. Abrams only conducts one custody evaluation at a time. He performs all psychological testing and interviews all parties, including children when appropriate, within a one to two week period.

Dr. Abrams utilizes a variety of methods to evaluate the parents and children involved in a custody dispute. He conducts each evaluation in a fair and impartial manner, reaching conclusions and writing the report based on the evidence he has gathered during the evaluation process. No preference is given to the paying client, the attorney, or the judge involved. He is neither a mother’s advocate nor a father’s advocate. Instead, he serves as a child advocate, and that is what shapes his decision.

Financial Planning

Dr. Abrams serves as a consultant to financial planners who are working with families that include a sibling, spouse or child with a chronic mental illness or unique neurodiverse challenges. He provides guidance on the long-term care options that these families should consider to ensure the health and safety of their vulnerable members.
