What is a Guardian Ad Litem?

A guardian ad litem (GAL) is an attorney appointed by the courts to represent the best interests of the child and to provide legal representation for the child. The GAL is responsible for helping the court make an informed decision about the welfare of the child. The GAL should interview all parties concerned, study the relevant case files and get to know the child or children involved. Once the necessary inquires are made, the GAL represents the child at hearings, writes reports to the court, and makes advisory recommendations regarding the child's best interests. more...
