b. Other useful information

The judge issues a decree ordering an expert evaluation to be made, usually indicating in the order the name of the expert who, as a rule, is chosen from among the permanent, sworn-in court expert witnesses in a particular professional area. If a more complex expert evaluation is necessary, it is also possible to order the expert evaluation to be made by a particular institution or a group of experts. A person that is to be examined by a psychiatric expert is summoned to the examination by the expert himself. If he or she does not respond to the summons, an order can be issued for the police to bring him to the expert.
