  1. Whether court ordered or voluntarily given, it can be quite probative.


  2. There are many factors to be considered before I would recommend such an assessment before a trial and you have provided no information - blanket opinions / recommendations one way or another don't do anyone any good. If you are in a position to wonder whether you should have such an assessment, you need to speak with an attorney. If you already have an attorney discuss with him/her the pros and cons of undergoing such an assessment and make the decision together.

    Good luck!

  3. I agree with Attorney Colson. This question is best answered by your attorney who is familiar with all of the facts. So, the answer to your question, based on the information provided,is "it depends on a lot of factors".
