MARIA LEGALLET )
To SARAH PIERCE:
By order of this court you are hereby cited to appear before the judge presiding in Department A of this court on 1/27/2023 at 8:30am, then and there to show cause, if any you have, why minor(s) should not be declared free from your parental control according to the petition on file herein.
The address of the above court is 1 Second Street, Watsonville, CA 95076.
The following information concerns rights and procedures that relate to this proceeding for the termination of custody and control of as set forth in Section 7820, et seq. of the Family Code.
(1) At the beginning of the proceeding the court will consider whether or not the interests of CHARLES TYLER SCHWALM requires the appointment of counsel. If the court finds that the interest of CHARLES TYLER SCHWALM does require such protection, the court will appoint counsel to represent them, whether or not they are able to afford counsel. CHARLES TYLER SCHWALM will not be present in court unless the court so orders.
(2) If a parent whose termination of parental rights is being sought appears without counsel and is unable to afford counsel, the court must appoint counsel for the parent, unless the parent knowingly and intelligently waives the right to be represented by counsel, pursuant to Family Code § 7860. The court will not appoint the same counsel to represent both CHARLES TYLER SCHWALM and their parent.
(3) The court may appoint either the public defender or private counsel. If private counsel is appointed, he or she will receive a reasonable sum for compensation and expenses, the amount of which will be determined by the court. That amount must be paid by the real parties in interest, but not by the minor(s), in such proportions as the court believes to be just. If, however, the court finds that any of the real parties in interest cannot afford counsel, the amount will be paid by the county.
(4) The court may continue the proceeding for not more than 30 days as necessary to appoint counsel and to enable counsel to become acquainted with the case.
