Child clients can be parties in state-initiated dependency and neglect cases, in private separation cases and custody battles, as well as in emancipation proceedings. They may also need representation when engaged in a disability determination or special-needs litigation, in a juvenile criminal case, or in a contract negotiation (e.g., for a child prodigy). Representing a child client is similar to representing an adult client in some ways, but at times it must be approached in a different manner by the attorney.
