When a child is suspected of having been subjected to a crime by a parent or a close relative of a parent a special representative will be appointed for the child. The special representative will represent the child in place of the guardians during the preliminary hearing and at the trial. The special representative takes over the guardians’ authorisation to make decisions regarding the child during the legal process. The person appointed as a special representative can be a lawyer or a legal associate who is suitable in terms of their knowledge, experience and personal qualities.

We undertake assignments as a special child representative.
