Guardian ad Litem
Sodoma Law offers experienced private Guardian ad litem (GAL) services. A GAL is charged with the responsibility of representing the best interest of minor child(ren) caught in the middle of hotly contested custody and or visitation disputes. The purpose of the GAL is to advocate and to protect the best interest of the innocent parties, the minor child(ren), while litigation is pending. The GAL’s job is to act only on behalf of the child(ren), independent of the positions taken by either parent or party to the action. The GAL, after conducting a thorough assessment of the case, makes recommendations to the parties’ attorneys and ultimately to the Judge. The ultimate goal of the GAL is to provide quality, best interest representation and to facilitate settlement since what is ultimately best for the child(ren) is to resolve the disputes outside of the courtroom.
