What Is a Guardian Ad Litem?

In custody cases, the courts will often appoint a third attorney to act as a guardian ad litem for the children. This lawyer does not represent the children as a client, but represents the best interests of the children when the court is determining custody, visitation and parenting plans.

The guardian ad litem will:

  • Investigate the full circumstances of the divorce and each parent's relationship with their children
  • Interview teachers, physicians and psychologists
  • Conduct psychological evaluations and custodial evaluations (when necessary) to help the courts determine which parent is better suited for custody

With over 30 years of experience in this area, she is one of the top three most frequently used guardians ad litem in northern Georgia and has on occasion been the instructor of the guardian ad litem certification course.
