What is GAL?

A Guardian Ad Litem (GAL) is an officer of the court and assists the court and the parties in reaching a decision regarding child custody, visitation and child-related issues.  The GAL holds a position of trust with the minor child(ren) and will exercise due diligence while performing his/her duties.  

How do I became a GAL?
The Judge can order a GAL to be appointed in a case or the parties/attorneys can request a GAL to be appointed.  Requesting a GAL is done by motion or in court and not done through this office. 

The Family Law Resource Center offers training to become a GAL every other year.  The role, responsibilities and duties of a GAL are clearly set forth on the Order to Appoint.
