Polygraph's in NJ for civil court and municipal court

Asked 10 months ago - Hillsborough, NJ

If I pay to have a polygraph done on myself, can it be used in family court? can it be used as evidence to support my claims to government agency's of what has happened to my daughter? Anyone know of any case laws that permitted this? any case laws permitting a minor to come to court and talk to the judge in chambers?
