Sample text

It should be based on factual history which relates to his or her actual functioning, as well as on preparation for the caretaking role and the practicality of arrangements. The assessment of parenting skills should include statements, based on observations whenever possible, of the parent's ability to foster ageappropriate behaviors in the child, guiding the child toward independence and individuality and stimulating the child emotionally and intellectually. Point out, using examples and quotations wherever possible, how each parent seems oriented toward the child's needs and whether one or both seem to want custody out of spite toward the other parent or perhaps to prove his or her own adequacy.

Even though you see yourself as an independent, objective witness, your recommendation creates disappointment in one of the parents. And the cross-examination will reflect it. So be prepared to have your opinion challenged. That is the attorney's job. Do not take it as a personal attack and respond inappropriately.

If you have been asked to testify by one of the attorneys, be sure to arrange to have that attorney prepare you in advance (Adams, 1980). Point out that it is to the attorney's advantage to rehearse the testimony so that you will be a better witness.
