425. In any family law case in which the interests of a minor child are at stake, the court, on its own initiative or on an application, may order the Psychosocial Assessment Service of the Superior Court to appoint an expert to enlighten the court on any custody-related or other issue affecting the child.
The decision must define the expert’s mission and set the time limit within which the expert report is to be submitted with the Psychosocial Assessment Service, which must not exceed three months after the expert’s appointment.
