Understanding the Role of a Guardian Ad Litem

As a parent, you want what is best for your children. You feel that maintaining the role you have in your child’s life is what is best for your child’s overall well-being and future. You hope that during the divorce experience, nothing about your role in your child’s life changes drastically.


However, given the volatile emotions that can surface during the divorce experience, your place in your child’s life could be threatened by an ex-spouse seeking sole custody of your shared child.


Family courts will act in the best interests of the child, but in order to do that, they often will employ the assistance of a Guardian Ad Litem (GAL). In this excellent blog posting, Daniel Pearce explains what a Guardian Ad Litem is and the process they go through.
