I was told that it is against Maryland law for a treating therapist to make a child custody recommendation. Is it true? If it is where can I find that law? Thanks
First, you would need to have the privilege waived to allow a child's therapist to testify. If the privilege is not waived the therapist cannot testify. Even if the the therapist is waived, the therapist cannot testify as to an exact schedule he or see thinks is best for the child. He or she can only testify as to the concerns that may arise with a parent(s).
