If you are under 19, there are a number of laws about your involvement in lawsuits you should know about. These laws are intended to protect you.
Sometimes the litigation guardian is the Public Guardian and Trustee. The Public Guardian and Trustee is appointed by the government (but is separate from the government) to help protect the legal and financial interests of children.
For more information see the Law Centre’s fact sheet, Lawsuits Involving Persons Under 19 Years of Age.
