With regards to child custody, the psychological condition of the parents is relevant to a determination of the best interests of the child.
Furthermore, the parents’ present ability to cope with day-to-day living is relevant.
A court-ordered psychiatric or psychological examination may be considered a suggested method for balancing the court’s need to determine the mental health of the parents as it relates to the best interests of the child, and the need to maintain confidentiality between treating psychotherapists and patients.
