Hearsay in Child Custody Cases…
Think “he said, she said” cases are hard? Imagine if it’s “the child said” or “this other guy said” or, as is the case in a lot of DHR cases, “this anonymous caller said.” Sounds like a mess, doesn’t it?
That’s why we’re digging into the vault in this, the week of Foxtrot’s 5th birthday, and checking out a short video shot at our original office in the Long Flanagan building in southtown Guntersville.
(Cautionary note…getting into hearsay in #ChildCustody cases often means getting into statements of children, and the cost/benefit analysis of a child testifying is something you need to really think about and discuss with your #ChildCustody lawyer who understands your family’s unique situation.)
