Custody Evaluation- 730, Los Angeles (request to relocate out of state by the mother with 1.5yo child).

Asked 10 months ago - Los Angeles, CA

We have been ordered a custody evaluation by the Judge. The name of the evaluator was picked by the judge 3 months ago. The Evaluator sent us his info 3.5 weeks ago. My ex's attorney is delyaing to submitt the reqwuet doc and sign the agreement witht the evaluator. What is the time line for the custody evaluation to start? Is there a time frame where they CAN NOT intentionally delay the process? HOw should I notify the Judge about this? Thanks.

    Answered . Trying to navigate this process without an attorney is VERY difficult, and VERY risky. Did the judge set a "return" date? If that date's coming up, and the evaluation hasn't started yet, you need to file either an ex parte application, or an RFO, to get the order for the evaluation enforced. How come two months went by between the time you picked an evaluator and the time the evaluator started doing anything?
