Can a child claim attorney-client privilege communications against their parents?

North Las Vegas, NV |

or does the attorney have to report any information received from the child client to the client's parents or guardians?

The caselaw is overwhelming that the child, not the parent, is the client.

For that matter, *any* time one person pays for another's attorney service, the client is the client, and there is no right to information or control by the paying party.
