Types of Evaluations in Dependency Court

Types of Evaluations in Dependency Court

Evaluations can be helpful and necessary in many types of dependency cases. In any written evaluation report, the evaluator describes the methods used and the reasoning for conclusions and recommendations. The specific purpose of the evaluation will dictate what type of assessment methods and what type of professional is necessary. A mental health, psychiatric or psychological evaluation addresses an individuals’ mental and emotional status, provides diagnostic information and makes appropriate recommendations.

    Superior Court doesn't have dependency court division. The family court division handles divorces and related mattters. The juvenile court division handles juveniles crimes (WIC 600) and CPS/DCFS cases (WIC 300).
