Amicus Attorney in Texas

Cedar Park Amicus Attorney

An amicus attorney investigates the facts involved and is charged with providing recommendations to the Court about what is in the child’s best interest.

What Are the Duties of an Amicus Attorney?

Most of the duties of an amicus attorney are set forth in Chapter 107 of the Texas Family Code and are typically laid out in the Order Appointing the Amicus Attorney.

Some of the typical duties involved are: (1) interviewing witnesses, (2) interviewing the child, (3) interviewing the parties in an effort to fully understand the relevant facts and evidence from a variety of angles. A party should always consult with their own attorney first and then get with the amicus attorney to provide a comprehensive list of potential witnesses and evidence involved.

The amicus attorney is also a part of the discovery and hearing proceedings that take place and is entitled to participate in the hearings, review and sign pleadings, and even give consent or refuse consent for another attorney to interview the child.

An amicus attorney also has the authority to gain access to all relevant records.

What Are the Costs of Hiring an Amicus Attorney?

Although the costs may vary, our office typically requires a retainer of $2,000 by each party and the hourly rate is $250.00 per hour. Please click HERE to view the fee agreement.

Whether or not an amicus attorney is right for your case is a question that you should explore with your attorney. Be aware that you cannot simply hire one for your child; rather, such a position is appointed by the Court.
