ICL involvement for an updated family report?

Seven or eight months ago I attended a court ordered family report appointment . The court has ordered another done before final hearing begins in few months. Since the first report compiled & now there has been an ICL put in place

Hi hoping someone can advise. Thanks.

Hey all

Seven or eight months ago I attended a court ordered family report appointment . The court has ordered another done before final hearing begins in few months.

Since the first report compiled & now there has been an ICL put in place for child who has been involved to extent of interviewing child & child's counselor's & arranging for visitation to progress from where it was before she was appointed & interviewing/inducting those whom were to be supervisors of visits.

What involvement does ICL have with Family Report author? As in does she divulge to the F.R author her interview/opinion with them?

Reading the Australian Standards of Practice for Family Assessment and Reporting, on page 8 is this

" 1a. If the family assessment has been ordered by a court then the court order, the Court’s policies and professional directions can describe the scope and purpose of the assessment, and should be applied. Private family assessors being briefed for a report should seek and be provided with all necessary information by the parties or their legal representatives, or through the
independent children’s lawyer where one has been appointed.
"

I had my interview & I don't recall the F.R. author making any mention of the ICL to be honest.
Cheers
