Weekends away

If messages appeared on an ipad that a child received as a gift, can they be used in court. If the ipad was in the primary custodian’s house and was a gift to the child (but the messages are between two people who don’t reside with the primary custodian) which show that the children may be in a dangerous or seriously questionable situation while exercising visitation weekends away. This is assuming the messages were downloaded to be printed as evidence.

Yes, you can use these as evidence in court.
