Both my wife and I stipulated on a 730 evaluator upon my recommendation since it is my belief that she is alienating me from our daughter. Our daughter is in my wife's primary custody right now. To my horror I found out that the evaluation may take over 6 months. We also stipulated on interim decisions by the evaluator but that is taking some time as well. Would it be worthwhile for me to do an independent evaluation which is quicker (<30days) which may help the judge agree to allow me to have more time with our daughter? The evaluator I am thinking of hiring is qualified and has done evaluations in the state of Washington. I'm bringing him in to SoCal because it is difficult to find evaluators in Southern California that will do it in that time frame.
