ATR/Revocation Investigation Report

Forté Investigations approaches these investigations have one primary goal in mind: to have the DOC withdraw revocation proceedings and implement the proposed Alternative to Revocation (ATR).


The process begins with an investigator meeting with the client, in person, to obtain an understanding of the allegations prompting revocation as well as their historical supervision experience. Next, the investigator reviews the client's supervision file to to see if the client's perspective of events coincides with the documentation available. This information assists the investigator with crafting an ATR which is proposed to the attorney through our Comprehensive Investigation Report (CIR). Once the attorney authorizes the proposed ATR, it is then presented to DOC agent.
