This bill would allow minors to petition courts without the consent of their parents, and participate in court proceedings on their own behalf. Courts would have to appoint a guardian ad litem for the minor in this situation. This would result in minors being authorized to sue their parents, and parents could be required to pay the costs of a guardian ad litem for the minor even if the petition is later dismissed.
