Comprehensive Vocational Evaluations and Expert Testimony
Career Counseling for Men and Women in Transition
A vocational evaluation is the process used to assess a person’s current or future employability and wage earning capacity in California family law matters. The evaluation is a neutral process that describes the person’s relationship to the work world.

A Written Employment Plan is designed for an individual in a mediated, collaborative or litigated family law case who wants to create a job or career goal and a plan to achieve it. All parties and/or counsel for each party (or mediator) should agree that career planning is appropriate for the case and relevant to the individual's circumstances.
