Guardian ad Litem


When child custody is at issue, whether in a divorce, after a divorce, or when the parents were never married, it is very common for the court to appoint someone to be the Guardian ad Litem for the children. The Guardian is a neutral party whose job is to investigate the situation and to try and determine what is in the best interest of the child(ren). The GAL will visit with each parent and with the child(ren) and possible with other people as well, including health professionals, educators, and family friends. When this is done the GAL creates a report for the court. Bruce is current with the Guardian ad Litem training and available for appointment for private cases. Please call or email today if you have questions about this service.

In addition, Guardians are sometimes needed in probate court when a person is seeking to obtain a guardianship or a conservatorship. Bruce can help you obtain guardianships and conservatorships, and can also serve as a Guardian ad Litem in cases of this nature. Please call or email for an appointment to discuss your case and to get more information on the topic.
