What is a 730 Evaluation?
The Law Office of André J. Ausseresses, APC has a philosophical view that a 730 evaluation is the best means to determine custody and visitation arrangements when there are issues of mental illness or high conflict between the parties.
A 730 evaluation is pursuant to Evidence Code §730 and then, pursuant to the evidence code and requirements found in the Family Code a 730 evaluator is appointed. The 730 evaluator will evaluate the parties, interview the minor children and receive information from collateral sources. After the 730 evaluator has completed their evaluation, a report will be created and served on the parties 10 days prior to the hearing.
A 730 evaluation can be stipulated by the parties, ordered by the court after a noticed motion, or upon the court’s own motion. Once the evaluation is ordered and the fees are paid, the evaluation commences and normally requires three to five months to complete.

They handled my case very well. They scoured through the details and supplied good communication so I always felt informed and clear about my position within the litigation. Each time we meet the staff was very informed and clear on the details of my case and goals for which I hired them.
