Writing a court report is one of the most important responsibilities of a CASA. The court report is the official method that a Court Appointed Special Advocate uses to inform the judge about what the advocate has learned about the appointed child and family. Through the court report a CASA lets the judge know what has been happening to the child while in the court's care. The report outlines, in a standard format, what the CASA has discovered, the CASA's assessment of the child's situation, and what the volunteer feels the court needs to do to help the child achieve a safe, permanent home.
