Frequently asked questions

Linda is known for being able to create a relaxing, child friendly environment so that children are comfortable opening up about their feelings, worries and wishes. 

Will the interviewer ask to meet with the parents/guardians, and/or read affidavits and other court documents?

The sole purpose of the interview is to present the child’s perspective. The interviewer is not assessing parental suitability or capacity to parent effectively. Therefore, the interviewer will not meet with the child’s parents, nor will she read court documents beyond the Court Order, if there is one.

 

If an assessment of parenting capacity is needed, a Section 211 Full report should be requested.  

Please note that Linda Fountain does not provide this service.
