A: It may be illegal to share an Alabama custody order in a Florida case where the clients are different if the Alabama custody order is considered confidential by law and a motion that will allow it to be presented as evidence before the Court has not been granted. However, if the foundation has been probably presented before the Court, the Court may find that the information is relevant even if is it not the same child or parents. The Rules of Evidence are complicated so I urge you to seek legal counsel as soon as possible.
