Making Divorce Child-Centric


In working with divorcing clients, family lawyers develop both legal and financial strategy. But there is a third element to the ‘triad of divorce’—the family. How can we support lawyers in gathering the information they need in the area of child custody? How can we make divorce child-centric and support families in making a fluid transition?

How can we put the ‘family’ back in family law?

Dr. Eric Frazer is the co-founder of Child Custody Analytics, an online platform designed to provide family lawyers with expert information and solutions around child custody. A forensic psychologist in private practice since 2002, Dr. Frazer specializes in Psychological Assessment, and he is well-versed in the contributions psychology brings to family law practices. Dr. Frazer earned his PhD from the Yale University School of Medicine.

Today, Dr. Frazer joins Katherine to discuss the evolution of family law, specifically the current ‘best interest of the child’ standard. He explains the aim of his company, Child Custody Analytics, in facilitating good decision-making and making divorce child-centric. Dr. Frazer walks us through the Child Custody Analytics platform, describing how it serves to gather information from parents, organize it in a meaningful way, and provide lawyers with research-informed guidelines. Listen in for Dr. Frazer’s take on the factors parents should consider in designing a parenting plan and learn why the quality of the time spent with children is more important than the quantity.
