Custody Advocacy Training


The Custody Advocacy Program (CAP) of Council for Children’s Rights (CFCR) advocates in family court for the best interests of children caught in the middle of high-conflict custody cases. You can become a part of this unique and rewarding program that seeks solutions for children during a very difficult time in their lives. CAP volunteer attorneys and custody advocates receive intensive training covering various aspects of this specialized program, including: the nuts and bolts of child custody cases to which CAP gets appointed; the local family court rules; divorce and its effects on children; child development; investigating and making best interest recommendations; and expectations of the family court judiciary. This training is for attorneys who are interested in pro bono representation of children, as well as paralegals and any other non-attorneys who are interested in serving as custody advocates.
