Custody Studies

When the court decides that a study should be conducted to help decide custody issues involving the placement of children in a divorcing family or family of unwed parents, DHHS staff interview the parties involved and submit a report to the court with recommendations.

Staff conducting the study may testify in any court proceedings.

In addition to conducting custody studies, DHHS also coordinates adoptions by stepparents or other relatives.
