In many family law cases, particularly those involving children, emotions run high. Often times the parents each have an attorney advocating for their specific needs and desires and varying positions can sometimes make it difficult for a court to know what is best for the children in the case. This is where a Guardian ad Litem in a family law case comes into play.
In a family law case in Florida, either party or the Court can request appointment of a private Guardian ad Litem. The private Guardian ad Litem is an attorney that is appointed to speak with the parties, speak with the children, speak with other collaterals, make observations and then make recommendations to the Court on what the Guardian ad Litem believes is in the children’s best interest. Let our background in education and working with the Statewide Guardian ad Litem Program assist in reaching the best result for your children.
