Selection of an Expert Witness

by | Nov 8, 2023 | Family Law

An expert witness plays an important role in Family Law matters because their expert report is considered a crucial piece of evidence before the Court.

Over the next few posts, we will provide you with information on the basics of expert witnesses and how they impact Family Law proceedings.

Selection of an expert witness

An expert witness can be appointed by the Court or a private practitioner who are deemed suitable by the Court.

Expert witnesses can also be nominated by the parties or their legal representatives to assist with the matter. For example, a family consultant. They are generally a ‘single expert’ to avoid disputes about which expert is better.
