Appointment of Counsel to Represent Child

Sometimes it may be appropriate for the court to determine that it would be in the best interest of the child to have him or her represented by his or her own attorney. The child's attorney must represent the child's best interests. Counsel is to gather information that bears on the child's best interest and present that admissible evidence to the court. If the child so desires, counsel may also present the child's wishes to the court. This may entail interviewing the child, reviewing the court files and relevant records and making further investigations as the attorney may consider necessary. The attorney shall not be called as a witness but may call his or her own witnesses, present arguments, etc. as to the child's welfare and shall have access to the child's medical, dental, mental health and other healthcare records, school and educational records and the right to interview school personnel, caretakers, healthcare providers, mental health professionals and others who have assessed the child or provided care to the child.
