In any particular case, you may be assigned a different lawyer than any of those listed here. If that occurs you will be given the attorney's contact information when you attend Court.
 
AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, you will need to call your attorney’s office and make an appointment.  Tell the receptionist the above court dates and that you must meet with your attorney before those dates.  You needn’t talk to the attorney when you call—merely schedule an appointment with his/her receptionist.  If an answering machine is your only contact when you make this call, please leave your name and number and your attorney will get back to you.

How about a suggestion on how the process can work better? They would like to hear from you. Please help us all improve the Dependency system by sending us your comments.
