DKM Custody Home Studies 
The main goal of the custody home study is to present data that suggests a creative plan which maximizes the children’s exposure to the strengths each parent has to offer. The evaluator’s role is NOT to provide therapy.The usual rules of confidentiality do not apply in a custody home study. The evaluator will have to gather and share information from other individuals in order to present a comprehensive evaluation.
