I have come across an old letter written by my partner's ex husband in which he is threatening suicide. As there is an ongoing children's case which includes discussing the mental health of the individual, should this letter be produced in evidence or is it subject to Immerman rules (I think they are only to do with financial disclosure). In my view as they relate to safety of a child it is admissable..Thanks

How old is the letter, and how did you obtain it?

The letter is 10 years old. It was addressed to his sister but not in an envelope. Its sets out his wishes and how to defraud the inland revenue by calling in bogus liabilities.It was left out on his desk, presumably for the soon to be ex wife to find.

I can't see that including it in a child case would help - the Judge may view its' inclusion as a petty, vindictive action. Focus on more recent evidence to support your position.

The original divorce hearing was during the crossover from Hildebrandt to Immerman. My partner had a bunch of documents which she had obtained legitimately at the time. When the law changed she had to return anything to do with financial matters. For whatever reason, this document was not included.

Thanks. In isolation I would agree. However it is a common theme from 3 estranged children that he used to regularly threaten suicide as a form of emotional abuse to get their affection. Having a handwritten note from him to that effect, despite being old helps to corroborate. As a psychologist has been called in by the court, he can handle it and decide the relevance if any. I wanted to make sure it wasn't illegal to refer to it, which it appears it is not. Thank you.
