what is a Guardian ad Litem?
A guardian ad litem is an attorney whose role in litigation is to represent the best interest of a child or children at issue in a custody dispute. When an attorney from our firm is appointed as a guardian ad litem by the court, the attorney diligently conducts an investigation through interviews and dialogues with the parents, children, teachers, extended family members, and anyone who has an impact in the life of the child.
After the attorney has conducted the investigation, the attorney provides a written recommendation to the court in order to clarify the plan most in line with the child or children’s best interest.
