Attending Court

How can a foster youth request to attend court?

As a foster youth, you have the right to attend your court hearings. 

You should receive a notice that will let you know when your court hearings are. To help prepare for your court hearing, you can reach out to your law guardian and/or CASA worker. Your CP&P worker will arrange for you to have transportation to and from your court hearing and can help you understand the court processes and support you.
