Rule 36. Admissible Evidence
(a) Relevant Evidence and Exclusions. The court must limit the scope of the hearing to the allegations of the petition. Relevant evidence is admissible provided, however, that the court may exclude relevant evidence if its probative value is substantially outweighed by a danger of one or more of the following: unfair prejudice, confusing the issues, undue delay, wasting time, needlessly presenting cumulative evidence, or lack of reliability.
(b) Reports, Documents, or Forms as Evidence. Any report, document, or standardized form required to be submitted to a court may be considered as evidence if either filed with the court or admitted into evidence by the court.
