Parents often have concerns about the parenting abilities of the other parent, particularly when the parents were never married and often with preschool-aged children.

Domestic Relations Services (in St. Louis County) and the Domestic Relations (St. Louis City) are simply too busy to provide the intensive observation needed to assess parenting abilities.

In the St. Louis area, Monica Williams will observe a parent and a child and make a report to the Court, including recommendations (if any).

Ms. Williams may be reached at (314) 518-2789 or
