CHILDREN AND YOUNG PERSONS (CARE AND PROTECTION) ACT 1998 - SECT 68

Leave to file further documentary evidence

68 Leave to file further documentary evidence

(1) A party to proceedings may, with the leave of the Children's Court, file further documentary evidence in connection with a care application.
(2) In particular, if documentary evidence has been filed in proceedings and the Children's Court subsequently determines under section 93 (3) that the rules of evidence, or specified rules of evidence, are to apply to the proceedings, the party that filed the documentary evidence may, with the leave of the Children's Court and for the purpose of complying with the relevant rules, file further evidence or may withdraw all or part of the evidence filed and file alternative evidence.
(3) Before granting leave under this section, the Court must be satisfied that the grant of leave will not result in undue delay in the matter being finalised.
(4) Section 64 applies in respect of any further documentary evidence filed under this section in the same way as it applies to the making of the care application concerned.
