How do I go about getting a psych eval?

By Dr. Marie Hartwell-Walker


i need to know how to go about getting a psych eval for a custody case. i am in the middle of a custody case. I was ordered to obtain a psych evaluation but have no health insurance and very little money. How do I accomplish this?

A: Since you were ordered by the court to get an evaluation, I think you should talk with your lawyer about how to go about it. Your lawyer will probably know whether there are clinics near you that offer low cost services or if there are other resources available.

I wish you well.
