What is the Children’s Lawyer?

The Children’s Lawyer is a qualified lawyer who works for the Office of the Children’s Lawyer (OCL), a government-funded office that represents children under the age of 18. The Children’s Lawyer presents to the Court what they believe is in the child’s best interest in cases involving custody and access or child protection. Despite common misconceptions, the Children’s Lawyer is not the children’s legal guardian, and is rather an advocate for children.
