§ 15.73. Court appointed counsel.

 The act requires that an emergency order under this section provides that the older adult has the right to legal counsel. If no representation for the older adult is present at the time the emergency order is requested, the agency shall inform the court of its efforts to notify counsel under §  15.71(b) (relating to involuntary intervention by emergency court order). If the older adult is unable to provide for counsel, the court will appoint counsel as authorized by the act at the time the emergency order is entered to ensure that legal representation will be provided at the time of the emergency protective services review hearing.
