How Is a Guardian Ad Litem Chosen?
How is the guardian ad litem chosen? First what is a guardian ad litem? A guardian ad litem is often appointed by the court in a custody case to represent the best interest of the children, and what they do is an investigation. They can visit homes and schools. They can talk to teachers and doctors and any other witnesses that either parent wishes them to speak to, in order to make a recommendation to the court on what the custody should be in your particular family. If you are represented, typically the attorney and opposing counsel will get together and decide which person should be the guardian ad litem. If they cannot agree then the court can simply appoint one. It’s really important to have an experienced attorney who understands who the guardian ad litems are and how they typically make recommendations.
