Case not supporting the actions of an Attorney for the Child

A case where the attorney for the child was wrong in including in her summation things that were not in the record.

To the extent that the Family Court relied on the detailed accounts provided by the attorney for the child concerning her conversations with the child, it is inappropriate for an attorney for the child to present “ ‘reports containing facts which are not part of the record’ ” (Cervera v. Bressler, 50 A.D.3d 837, 841, 855 N.Y.S.2d 658, quoting Weiglhofer v. Weiglhofer, 1 A.D.3d 786, 788 n. 1, 766 N.Y.S.2d 727; see 22 NYCRR 7.2[b] ).
