How long does it typically take to get results for a psych evaluation in a divorce?
There are many variables; just to name a few: how easily the kind of qualified evaluator needed can be found, finding an evaluator to which no one objects, how busy the evaluator is (how packed the evaluator’s schedule already is), how many different components the particular evaluation may include (i.e., how many different tests will be conducted), how cooperative the party to evaluated is (or is not), how soon the evaluator’s fee(s) can be paid (the evaluator will not release the evaluation report until the evaluator has been fully paid for the work performed).
On average, you’re looking at around 3 months, in my opinion. It shouldn’t take that long, but it usually does. And don’t be surprised if it takes even longer, especially if the party to be evaluated knows he/she has something to hide and that he/she does not want exposed.
Domestic relations litigation is miserable. Never forget that.
