When a referral is received to conduct a competency evaluation from the court, an attorney, or a private party, information is obtained from the referral source that defines the specific capacity to be evaluated. The term competence, or competency in most cases, is used as a general term for a forensic evaluation. The terms capacity, incapacity and incapacitated, particularly in probate cases, are a part of the definition of the type of competence to be evaluated. For example, Testamentary capacity, and Decisional capacity are legal terms used to define a specific competence. However, the terms competency, competent, incompetent and incompetency are terms used in some legal definitions, particularly in criminal cases, such as Competent to proceed, or Mental Incompetency to proceed. By identifying the specific capacity or competency that is in question, we can hit the “bull’s eye” rather than hitting the target by doing a more general competency evaluation.
