88. The contents of a study, assessment or expert opinion contemplated in section 86 must be sent to the parties, who may dispute the data or the conclusions contained in such study, assessment or expert opinion.
However, where the author of the study, assessment or expert opinion believes that the contents or part of the contents should not be communicated to the child, the judge may, by exception, prohibit the transmission of it. The judge must then satisfy himself that the child is represented by an advocate who may examine the study, assessment or expert opinion and dispute it.
Where the study, assessment or expert opinion is disputed, the Court of Québec may require the director to procure a second one. The Court of Québec shall determine who must pay for such second study, assessment or opinion.
