Officers of the Court

CASAs are Officers of the Court, with the relevant rights and responsibilities that pertain to this role as defined by the Welfare and Institutions Code. CASAs are volunteer advocates independently appointed by the Juvenile Court and do not work for the Human Services Department (CPS). Each CASA has been requested by, appointed by and sworn in by a Superior Court Judge. The judge making the appointment has signed an Order, which grants the CASA the authority to review specific relevant documents and interview parties involved in the case, as well as other persons having significant information relating to the child, to the same extent as any other Officer of the Court, to investigate proceedings on behalf of the Court. The CASA shall report the results of the investigation to the Court.

Order of Appointment

Upon presentation of the Order of his or her appointment by the CASA, any agency, hospital, school, organization, division or department of the state, physician and surgeon, nurse, other health care provider, psychologist, psychiatrist, police department or mental health clinic shall permit the CASA to inspect and copy any records relating to the child involved in the case of appointment without the consent of the child or parents. As a reminder, minors have the right to make contact with social workers, attorneys, probation officers and foster youth advocates, including their CASA, unless otherwise ordered by the Court.

Confidential Records

The CASA shall report the results of their investigation to the Court. All otherwise confidential records and information acquired or reviewed by a CASA during the course of his or her duties shall remain confidential and shall be disclosed only pursuant to a Court Order.
