Independent Children’s Lawyer
Rebecca Badenoch, Legal Practice Director of Culshaw Miller Badenoch Lawyers, is a qualified independent children’s lawyer (‘ICL’).
As an ICL, Rebecca can be appointed by the court to represent and promote the best interests of the child or children in a particular case. She can be appointed upon the application of a child, an organisation or person concerned with the welfare of a child (such as a parent or grandparent, or the Department of Health and Human Services) or at the discretion of the court.
Rebecca will consider the child’s or children’s views, but nonetheless provide an independent view as to what is going to be in their best interests.
