The Office of Attorneys for Children provides legal services to children in Family Court proceedings and Supreme Court custody matters. More than 700 attorneys in private practice are designated by the Appellate Division as members of county panels, and are then appointed by Family Court Judges and Supreme Court Justices to represent children on a case-by-case basis. Representation is also provided in five counties by offices under agreements between the Appellate Division and qualified attorneys. In addition to overseeing panel and office operations, the Office offers attorneys a wide range of support resources, including a comprehensive continuing legal education curriculum.
