The CASA is to assist the court in determining the best interest of the child. They are to investigate the facts of the situation as directed by the court and submit a report to all parties subsequent to adjudication.

A court order is issued to the CASA which waives the provisions of the children's code relating to confidentiality and gives them the authority to obtain information from any agency, hospital , school, organization, or office.
