CASA represents the best interest of the child and funnels information to the attorney and judge. An attorney is charged with representing their client's legal interests and with following the wishes of their client. CASA is appointed as the child's guardian ad litem and is responsible for making recommendations about what things would be best for the child. CASA does not file legal paperwork with the court. However, CASA does provide crucial background information that assists the court in making decisions.
