This book provides the first fully annotated discussion of the ethical universe surrounding state mandated and private legal disputes involving the custody and best interest of children. It surveys thousands of court cases, statutes, state bar ethics codes, Attorney General opinions, and model codes regarding ethical constraints in family and dependency proceedings.

The book is unique in two ways. It analyzes ethical rules not only in terms of the chronology of these proceedings, but it also surveys those principles for each of the primary participants - children's counsel, parents' counsel, government attorneys, and judges. The book contains chapters on pre-hearing alternative dispute resolution, motion and trial practice, appellate procedures, and separation of powers. Finally, the book provides a complete child abuse case file with a comprehensive analysis of the inherent ethical issues.

  • A comprehensive, annotated analysis of ethical discussions in cases, statutes, state bar ethics codes, Attorney General opinions, and model codes of ethics
  • A discussion of ethical rules according to the chronology of disputes involving children in relation to the ethical duties of children's counsel
  • A complete juvenile case file with extensive analysis of the inherent ethical issues
