Forensic Evaluations

Judges and attorneys may recommend or require forensic evaluations for many reasons, especially for family, criminal and civil cases such as those including divorce, drugs/alcohol use or child custody cases. Our practice can provide you with these services, or in special cases, we give you a referral to another provider who can assist you.

If your case does not include legal involvement, you likely do not need a forensic evaluation. A Diagnostic Intake appointment with Dr. Montes can help you decide which type of evaluation is appropriate for your case.


Free 15-minute phone consultations are also available.
