PURPOSE OF THE ATTORNEYS FOR CHILDREN PROGRAM
The purpose of the Attorneys for Children (hereinafter AFC) Program is to provide representation to minors in many kinds of court proceedings (such as juvenile delinquency, custody and visitation, and child protective proceedings). There are approximately 850 attorneys who serve as AFCs on panels in the twenty two counties comprising the Fourth Department. The AFC Program administers the AFC panels, including processing their vouchers for payment; providing extensive and mandatory legal education; and providing support services.
Currently, the AFC Program is processing vouchers the day of receipt.
Below is a brief description of the contents contained in the links located to the left of this page.
