This case involves a child custody dispute following the divorce of Carol and Charles Eastman. Charles Eastman appeals from a trial court's ruling denying him access to the results of a home study investigative report, ordered pursuant to K.S.A. 1978 Supp. 60-1607(a)(5). We reverse and remand this case and order that the trial court provide the appellant with the requested information. Charles Eastman (defendant-appellant) and Carol Eastman (plaintiff-appellee) were divorced on February 2, 1976. Mrs. Eastman was awarded custody of the couple's three minor children. On March 13, 1979, defendant filed a motion for change of custody of the children, alleging a significant change of circumstances. At defendant's request, the court ordered home study investigations of the homes of both parties. The investigations were conducted by the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services. On March 21, 1979, the court temporarily ordered the children placed in defendant's custody. On August 27, 1979, the court filed an order entered into by both parties changing custody of the children to defendant. The plaintiff filed a motion to make visitation rights definite and certain and defendant filed a motion for child support, restricted visitation rights and requested a home study on plaintiff's home.
