11 Mar 2024 3:52 PM | Anonymous

The OCR is a state agency that oversees Guardian ad litem (best interests) attorney services in dependency and neglect, juvenile delinquency, truancy, paternity, and other proceedings, as well as Counsel for Youth (client-directed) attorney services for youth 12 and older in dependency and neglect and foster youth in transition proceedings. In all models of representation, our attorneys strive to empower youth, elevate youth voice in proceedings, and advocate for equity, justice, ensuring an equitable process.


Whether appointed as a Guardian ad Litem or Counsel for Youth, attorneys who contract with the OCR obtain comprehensive support, including guidance from a mentor, a robust training program, a range of concrete legal and social science resources, and a variety of other litigation services. Even if your bar association members do not have experience in child welfare law, the array of support provided can give them the tools to become effective litigators in this field.


More importantly, attorneys who contract with OCR have a wonderful opportunity to make a positive impact on the life of the child and youth.
