What Should You Expect From a GAL?


As a parent, guardian or legal custodian, you can expect that:

  • A GAL will communicate with you regarding the child's needs and your efforts to meet those needs.
  • A GAL may also communicate with teachers, counselors, therapists, doctors, and anyone else who has relevant information.
  • A GAL will listen to your concerns.
  • if you are a person who wants custody or visitation, the Guardian ad Litem will confer with you about this child.
  • A Guardian ad Litem will make reports concerning the child to the court.
