    Custody Evaluator
    flower1020 posted:
    I am divorcing a verbally (and starting to turn physically abusive) man. He has not left evidence of his cruelty, although I am now recording all our time together. My lawyer has recommended using a custody evaluator and recommended one he has worked with before.
    I looked up the man he recommended and found awful reviews/comments about him.
    So I have three questions:

    How did you know that the person you hired would be impartial?
    Does anyone know anything about Dr. Robert Loveland in West Linn, OR?
