Ad hoc tutor
The court may also appoint an ad hoc tutor on its own initiative if it is hearing a case opposing the tutor and the child.
The court appoints an ad hoc tutor on the advice of the tutorship council, when the child and the tutor have conflicting legal interests. One of the responsibilities of the tutorship council is to ensure that an ad hoc tutor is appointed whenever the situation requires.
In a dispute about whether the parent or the child will be the beneficiary of insurance proceeds, an ad hoc tutor is appointed to defend the interests of the minor.
The ad hoc tutor is given a temporary mandate: their action is limited to representing the child in a specific situation. They play no part in the overall administration of the minor’s property.
