Guardian ad Litem

When parents cannot agree on what is in the best interests of their child(ren), a guardian ad litem is appointed by the Court as a neutral third party to assist the Court in the determining the best interests of the child(ren). The GAL investigates the disputed issue(s) and then reports her findings to the Court. Based on the GAL's investigation, the GAL may also advocate for what the GAL believes is in the best interests of the child(ren).
