(a) Upon appeal from a judgment freeing a child who is a dependent child of the juvenile court from parental custody and control, the appellate court shall appoint counsel for the appellant as provided by this section.
(b) Upon motion by the appellant and a finding that the appellant is unable to afford counsel, the appellate court shall appoint counsel for the indigent appellant, and appellant s counsel shall be provided a free copy of the reporter s and clerk s transcript. All of those costs are a charge against the court.
(c) The reporter s and clerk s transcripts shall be prepared and transmitted immediately after filing of the notice of appeal, at court expense and without advance payment of fees.
