Calling another psychologist

I got a proposed agreement from another psychologist who does forensic child custody evaluations, and it had this clause:

Many parents ask about confidentiality in a child custody evaluation. Quite simply, within the process, there is no confidentiality.
I think that this is correct. The main purpose of the evaluation is to develop evidence to be presented in open court, and it is not confidential.

One of my complaints with a previous evaluator was that he tried to trick my kids into thinking that the process was confidential. They were surprised when they learned that it was not.
