AS 47.30.775. Commitment of Minors.

The provisions of AS 47.30.700 - 47.30.815 apply to minors. However, all notices required to be served on the respondent in AS 47.30.700 - 47.30.815 shall also be served on the parent or guardian of a respondent who is a minor, and parents or guardians of a minor respondent shall be notified that they may appear as parties in any commitment proceeding concerning the minor and that as parties they are entitled to retain their own attorney or have the office of public advocacy appointed for them by the court. A minor respondent has the same rights to waiver and informed consent as an adult respondent under AS 47.30.660 - 47.30.915; however, the minor shall be represented by counsel in waiver and consent proceedings.
