THE ENCLOSED CHILD CUSTODY EVALUATION REPORT IS CONFIDENTIAL Unwarranted Disclosure of the Report You must not make an unwarranted disclosure of the contents of the child custody evaluation report. A disclosure is unwarranted if it is done either recklessly or maliciously and is not in the best interest of the child. · Monetary Sanctions: If the court determines that an unwarranted disclosure of a written confidential report has been made, the court may order a fine against the disclosing party in an amount that is large enough to prevent that person from disclosing information in the future. · Attorney Fees and Costs: The sanction may also include reasonable attorney fees, costs incurred, or both, unless the court finds that the disclosing party acted with substantial justification or that other circumstances make the imposition of the sanction unjust. Potential Consequences for the Unwarranted Disclosure of the Report By law, the court can impose a penalty for the unwarranted disclosure of the child custody evaluation report. The penalty for the unwarranted disclosure of the child custody report can include monetary sanctions (a fine) and attorney fees and costs.
