Family Law CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of King County
Family Law CASA's mission is to advocate for children who are in the middle of contested custody cases, to ensure they have the best possible chance for a safer, more secure home life. Cases often involve allegations of domestic violence, substance abuse, and mental illness. More information can be found on our website: www.familylawcasa.org.
CASA gives children a voice in court by training community volunteers to advocate for the child's best interest in tough situations. These special individuals thoroughly and objectively research the children’s family and lives at home, and then generate written reports to the court. These reports provide judges and commissioners with crucial information as they try to sort through allegations and decide on a custody arrangement that will be in the best interest of the child.
Family Law CASA began taking cases in the summer of 2003. The organization is assigned to approximately 120 cases per year, and has served more than 1,000 children since its inception. To date, we have over 200 trained community advocates. Working together, we can give children a voice in court.
