Can I File An Order For My Wife To Get A Psychiatric Evaluation?

  • By: David Bliven, Esq.
  • Published: August 16, 2018

Q: I due in court tomorrow, i think my wife is going through a hormonal imbalance since the birth of our son can i file a psychiatric evaluation for my wife, and I want joint physical custody and she disagreed so the judge says when we go back now she will assign a lawyer to my three-year-old daughter and we have to pay I can afford it I don’t have a lawyer for myself what can I do

A: You’d need to marshall your evidence which supports your notion that your wife has a mental illness. Then raise the issue on the adjourn date by requesting a forensic psychological evaluation. Bear in mind, generally the Judge will make you pay for that as well unless you’re deemed “indigent.” Schedule a consult with a Bronx Family law attorney for a full assessment.
