ABSTRACT
The article discusses the standards and models of child representation and recommends an increase in child's autonomy in directing his or her own representation. Based on the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers Standards, children should not routinely appoint lawyers in custody cases, but should be client-directed when they represent unimpaired children. The client-children model of child representation is the position expressed by standards and recommendations.
