Yesterday, Representative Gwen Moore (D-WI) re-introduced a bill to ensure parents have legal representation throughout child welfare proceedings. Citing the benefits for children in keeping their families together, Moore promotes legal representation as a way to help parents access needed services, make the case for increased visitation, and negotiate case plans. The bill amends the Court Improvement Program (CIP) under IV-B, Part 2 of the Social Security Act to provide funding for the legal representation. In a press release, Moore states, “Child outcomes improve and courts function more effectively when all parties have quality legal representation.”
