FAQ: What Is A Guardian ad Litem?

A Guardian Ad Litem (GAL) is a court-appointed lawyer whose job is to serve as an advocate for the best interests of the children in a Wisconsin divorce. Either parent can request a Guardian Ad Litem be appointed, but one will be assigned if the parents cannot come to an agreement on child custody or placement either independently or with the help of a mediator. After performing an investigation called an “informal discovery,” Guardians Ad Litem will advise the judge based on a number of factors, including but not limited to: the wishes of the child, the safety and well being of the child, the strength and duration of existing relationships with grandparents or other family members, the amount of time spent with the child in the past, relocation concerns including school and child care, and the parent’s ability to cooperate and communicate with the other parent in regards to the child. For more information about how Guardians Ad Litem affect your child custody battle, call to schedule an appointment with an experienced Milwaukee area divorce lawyer at John T. Fields & Associates.
