Designed to assist advocates for nonresident fathers in child welfare cases, this checklist explores ethical issues that should be considered when representing nonresident fathers. Advocates are urged to remember the appointment creates the attorney-client relationship, to competently represent a father client, to assess their options if contact with the client is lost, and to avoid representing multiple fathers or both parents in one case.
