My child's other parent has been investigated multiple times/had multiple CPS "family assessment" cases opened against them. There's been a complaint from my child that the other parent whacks my child's head with an object for not being still. Is it hearsay for me to write that in my affidavit/testify about it since my child told me and I didn't witness first hand?
Thanks in advance.
It is "hearsay" but there is probably an exception to the hearsay rule that would allow you to discuss this.
