Sequence of hearings
Family Court Act (FCT) CHAPTER 686, ARTICLE 8, PART 3
§ 835. Sequence of hearings. (a) Upon completion of the fact-finding
hearing, the dispositional hearing may commence immediately after the
required findings are made.

(b) Reports prepared by the probation service for use by the court at
any time prior to the making of an order of disposition shall be deemed
confidential information furnished to the court which the court in a
proper case may, in its discretion, withhold from or disclose in whole
or in part to the child's attorney, counsel, party in interest, or other
appropriate person. Such reports may not be furnished to the court prior
to the completion of a fact-finding hearing, but may be used in a
dispositional hearing.
