It's amazing when a person does not get what they want, they criticize the evaluator, or therapist... In my case, my ex leveled false accusations in court. LAPD, DCFS got involved, and closed their files within 2 weeks. We then had a well recognized Female evaluator. My ex criticized DCFS, LAPD and the Family law Judge to the evaluator. The evaluator finally suggested in her 200 pages report that it was best for the kids to be with both parents equally. She even wrote that she felt the mom instilled anxiety into the kids, that she had anger management issues, and envisioned the kids wanting to spend more time with heir father as they grow older. We signed a custody agreement to share almost 50/50, but the ex did not like the deal. So we attempted to hire our evaluator as a PPC, but she came to her office, criticizing the evaluator to her face with the help of her attorney all in my presence. The evaluator's jaw dropped to the floor. So a few weeks later, the ex leveled yet again some other false allegations towards me, for a 2nd round of DCFS and children court this time, instead of Family law court. 4 months later the case was closed, and the court gave me back my kids after DCFS watched us for an additional 6 months. We were then ready ready to hire our evaluator as a PPC this past month, but my ex bombarded the PPC with self serving emails, and essentially sabotaged our attempt at getting started with the evaluator, that she reimbursed our deposits saying that she had no more time available for us.

Morale: People that do not get what they want.... want to blame others for their own inadequacies! and continue to refuse to see what is best for the children!

I hope Ian Russ, can help us go forward.... if my ex does not scare him away first!

I read the other reviews published on Ian Russ and find them to be typical. If he didn't give the recommendation you wanted you downgrade him. This man knows what he is doing and he is an expert with more credentials then I can even list. Though he has not done a Custody Evaluation for me I have worked with him in personal Therapy to help deal with an extremely difficult custody battle that my ex managed to drag DCFS into. He calls me out when I am wrong and doesn't let me get away with trying to blame others when I am in the wrong. No he does not do so lightly. Im the one paying him but I see him to be a better parent not just to have him tell me what I want to hear. So no matter who it is that is paying him he is going to do whats best for the Children. So ask yourself what your looking for, someone who's going to do whats best for your kids or someone to BS you, tell you what you want to hear and watch you screw up your children's lives. I want to be the best parent possible and make sure everything that I do is in her best interest so in my opinion Dr Russ is the man to seek help from if you really care about your children.

Dr. Russ's expert decisions in Court's carry substantial weight beceause of his background and his close consideration of issues. I was seeking full custody of my children because my ex was unfit, in my opinion. Even though Dr. Russ did not recommend what I would have wanted, he earned my respect. It is the judges in the end who decide on the evaluator and I can see why they select Dr. Russ. He is also among the most popular and difficult to secure therapists.

Dr. Russ was our family evaluator. He was asked to review my family and see which parent my little brother would be better off living with. He chose my Dad, which usually NEVER happens. He also played favorites with my Dad, and did it very obviously. I have also heard on the grapevine that he made less than favorable choices in other situations of his clients. I would not recommend.

This guy in my opinion has a God complex. He was asked to evaluate and recommend which parent my children were best suited for based on accusations of my ex. My children saw him on an individual basis and answered his questions and his recommendation was outrageous. I was penalized for having to be a single mom and be at work full time. Stay away from this guy. He's bad news.
