Can I request a mental exam as part of a Missouri divorce or custody action?

Yes, a mental exam may be ordered during a divorce or custody proceeding, but Missouri courts do not take these requests lightly. There must be a compelling reason to ask for a mental exam, and a party's mental health must be at issue to begin with. Many times, if a request for mental exam comes up, the court will order both spouses to undergo the exams.
