You need an attorney. Each case is different and the laws are different. Think about what you had to do to get custody. I'm not sure what you mean by a 3 year evaluation. Is the child's father fighting you for custody, or is it that you've had problems with the state, and they are evaluating you to make sure you are capable of taking care of the child? Whichever is the case, I'm assuming you need to prove that you have enough finances to provide for the child. Are you working or are you being supported by the state? Where do you live? Is it clean and well cared for. Do you provide a good emotional environment for your child. Is there a problem with drugs or alcohol? Is the child in good health? If school age, attending school? How many absences. Do you have report cards or teacher's evaluations? Think about what happened in court last time. When you go, be neat and cleanly dressed. Be respectful of those asking questions.
