On August 7, 2013, the Pennsylvania Department of State placed the license of psychologist Jeff Fremont on probation for no less than nine months and ordered him pay a civil penalty of $3,000 and investigative costs of $1,453.31.

The state’s document states that Fremont failed to maintain professional records used in a child custody evaluation report, failed to create and maintain professional records in accordance with ethical and legal obligations, displayed gross incompetence, negligence, or misconduct in carrying on the practice of psychology, failed to conform to the standards of acceptable and prevailing psychological practice when he destroyed and/or failed to maintain records, and failed to focus his evaluation on parenting capacity, the psychological and developmental needs of the child, and the resulting fit.

He is also required to take and complete a minimum of 20 contact hours of remedial education in patient record keeping and child custody law and ethics.
