Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have references that I can check before I decide to register for an assessment?

Yes. Feel free to contact us by phone at 1-800-671-8589, and we can provide you with professional references.

Can I find out before paying for my assessment if it will be accepted?

You can refer to the "check my state" map on our home page to check your specific state. Our assessments are accepted in most state courts and the majority of state DMVs. If you have concerns about acceptance, you can call our office or speak directly to the requesting authority asking for the assessment. You also have the option to contact us before you begin services, and we can discuss our credentials, reporting standards, and any questions you have. 

Will you send the assessment report directly to me when it is completed?

Yes, your evaluator will email you a copy of your report once it's complete. You may then forward the report or arrange to permit your evaluator to send it to the third-party authority requesting the assessment. In cases of an official court order, some exceptions can exist.

Will my fees be refunded if my assessment is not accepted?

Assessment Fees (excluding rush order fees) are refundable when requesting parties will not accept our assessment and you meet the conditions of our Terms of Service Refund Policy. You must request your refund within 45 days of completing your assessment. Before requesting a refund, please read our refund policy under Terms of Service carefully.
