The forensic evaluation request form needs to reach PHR at least eight weeks before the affidavit is required. Due to the heavy demand for forensic evaluations, PHR cannot guarantee securing an evaluation for every case. The probability that your case will be placed increases with advance notice. Lawyers will be responsible for contacting the health professional and making an appointment for their client. Lawyers also will be responsible for securing an interpreter if their client needs one for the evaluation.
