Are a child's communication to a judge private?
Category: Family Law

 Uherek v. Sathe, 391 N.J. Super. 164, 168 (App. Div.), certif. denied, 192 N.J. 72 (2007) stands for the proposition that a transcript of a child interview may only be turned over during an actively pending custody case.  Absent that circumstance, there is no basis to turn over the child's private communications with the court - even to a parent. Id. at 169.
