#18- Tip for Your Child Custody Case in California.
#18 - A witness can only testify to facts that he or she observed personally. You cannot testify to what your children have told you.
You can, generally, testify to what the other parent has told you. If your children have told you things about the other parent, his or her lifestyle or the activities that are engaged in when the children are present, most likely the only ways to get this information into evidence are:
1) have the children see a psychologist or psychiatrist and describe these things;
2) ask the other parent about these situations and hope he or she admits to them;
3) witness them yourself or attempt to obtain another witness.
Note the persons present at the time of any significant incident so we will know whom to call as witnesses.
