Guardian Ad Litem
If children are involved, and the parents do not agree on parenting issues (e.g. who gets a say in the medical, educational, religious and extra-curricular lives of the children, parenting time or who the child should primarily reside with), the Judge may appoint a Guardian Ad Litem. A Guardian Ad Litem is an attorney who will represent the best interests of the minor children (under age 18). Each parent is responsible to pay for the Guardian Ad Litem’s services and the Guardian Ad Litem does an investigation into the home and lifestyle of the family so that he/she can make recommendations to the Judge as to what is best for your particular children. It is in your best interest to fully cooperate with the Guardian Ad Litem’s investigation. The Guardian Ad Litem becomes the eyes and ears of the Court.
