Law/Patents - Law (general) / Legal Abbreviation (Child Custody Hearing)
German term or phrase: (Beilage./V; ZV "John Smith", AS 300).
I am translating an Austrian court ruling on a custody dispute.

Parenthetical reference notes, of which the above is a generic example, come up again and again.

I suspect that the "Z" in "ZV" has something to do with "Zeugen" as the persons mentioned are invariably witnesses. (maybe something synonymous with Zeugenaussage, but peculiar to Austrian German?)

I cannot guess, and have not been able to discover what legal term or phrase the abbreviation "ZV" stands for.
