    • There are currently no precise restrictions as to the subject matter or conduct of experts who are called upon to testify pursuant to California Evidence Code section 733, regarding the evidence that is provided by an expert who has been appointed by a court pursuant to Evidence Code section 730.  Although both section 730 and section 733 experts are forensics, and therefore presumably focused upon forming conclusions which are based upon objective facts drawn from clear data for the purpose of informing the court, the sources of their data are substantially different, as are their respective objectives.  Moreover, while the 730 expert functions pursuant to court order, and performs an independent investigation pursuant to that order, the 733 expert should not perform their own investigations to be  presented to the court., Appropriate and Ethical Use of Evidence Code Section 733 Consultants, Family Law, 2019
