Family reports

                   If a family report is prepared in a case, the court may:

                     (a)  release copies of the report to each party, or the party's lawyer, and to an independent children's lawyer;

                     (b)  receive the report in evidence;

                     (c)  permit oral examination of the person making the report; and

                     (d)  order that the report not be released to a person or that access to the report be restricted.


Note:       The filing of an affidavit does not make it become evidence. It is only when the affidavit is relied upon by a party at a hearing or trial that it becomes, for that hearing or trial (subject to any rulings on admissibility), part of the evidence.
