SPOUSAL ABUSE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE EVALUATIONS
Spousal Abuse or Domestic Violence psychological evaluations document extreme cruelty, battery, and other forms of abuse. These evaluations document the individual’s current mental state and assess the emotional impact of the abuse endured. The psychological evaluations may be used to document the nature, severity, and frequency of the spousal abuse or domestic violence.
The eligibility requirements and case-law outline categories of battery and cruelty. These categories include but are not limited to verbal abuse, intimidation, manipulation, sexual abuse, physical abuse, etc. After the abusive acts are identified, we assess their impact on emotional adjustment, social functioning, mental health diagnoses, and long-term impact.
