There have been some recent very substantial developments in the Arizona family court regarding mental health assessments that do not rise to the level of a full (and costly) custody evalution. Due to Court cut backs, Parenting Conferences through Conciliation Services are no longer available. Such are being outsourced to private mental health providers. I do not have a huge problem with this since at least some of the the Conciliation Services reports seemed to provide recommendations without sufficient facts and input. This sometimes led to additional litigation which cost more than a real custody evaluation would have cost in the first place.
