    I've been told that whatever is said in the case management conference that it's admissible as evidence in family court. Is that true? What should I be seeking to say in that meeting? May I make a request for more access? May I bring photographic evidence and will the case assessment officer take it?

    According to the case management guidelines of the Family Court or WA, anything said to a Family Consultant in a case assessment conference is admissible in Court. The Family Consultant is seeking to assist the parties to reach agreement on all or part of their case, so you should be able to discuss access. As far as providing evidence, they will seek to identify the relevant issues in the case and consider appropriate case management options.
