    The proposed amendments seek to set a procedure for a child’s trial attorney to request separate counsel for appeals from dependency, guardianship, and termination proceedings, as well as clarify the duties of children’s attorneys during such appeals.

    Filed: January 9, 2024

    Would amend Rules 304 and 306 of the Rules of Procedure for the Juvenile Court to provide, among other things, that a child’s trial counsel could ask the juvenile court to appoint separate counsel for the child in appeals regarding dependency, guardianship, and termination.

    Comments must be submitted by no later than Wednesday, May 1, 2024, and any reply by a petitioner must be submitted no later than Monday, June 3, 2024.
