Based in Irvine, California, psychologist Dr. Miriam Galindo received her undergraduate degree from Chapman University, her master of social work from California State University, Long Beach, and her doctor of psychology from Trinity College of Graduate Studies in Anaheim. Having worked for over 20 years counseling families and children, Dr. Miriam Galindo has been serving at Orange County Superior Court as a child custody evaluators.
Family courts dealing with child custody cases usually provide a service called “child custody recommending sessions” which allow the parents to talk to a specially trained and experienced psychologist who will then help them construct a plan for parenting responsibilities. These sessions are supported by the Family Law Code to mitigate acrimony between the parents and provide for the best interests of the children.
These meetings are important avenues for parents to affirm their position as parents and their ongoing responsibilities despite their decision to separate by writing the parenting plans themselves. Otherwise, the responsibility might be delegated to third parties such as judges, psychologists, or mediators.
