Hello, I am happy to assist you today.
Generally the court would not take any special steps in a court appearance when a child is involved, unless the attorneys involved in the case make a motion. Either the District Attorney or the attorney representing the child would make such a motion. So yes, it is possible to have the courtroom cleared, but this would not happen without taking that step of requesting the court to do this.
Let me know if you have any questions about this.
