Thank you for your question;
If the court order states that the parties will split the initial psych evaluation, then the spouse need not contribute to subsequent evaluations absent a court order to the contrary. If the court order only ordered one evaluation, then the individual is not required to submit to a second evaluation absent a court order directing this.
If the order is vague, and states that the parties shall split all psych evaluation costs, then that would include any subsequent issues; however, it is possible to request clarification from the court, asking the court to determine responsibility as to the follow up session, if the wording is vague.
Generally there is a tendency, when a judge orders that a cost be divided, to continue with requiring both parties to contribute 50%, unless the additional expense is necessitated by the individual's action (ie failing to show up for the appointment).
