The Mediation Center supports the courts, families, and attorneys by managing the Chatham County Guardian ad Litem program. Guardian ad Litems Court appointed to represent the interest of a child in cases involving high conflict and allegations of abuse or neglect. In this training, you will hear from attorneys, licensed counselors, Judges, and volunteers regarding the importance of the GAL program; best practices; strategies for conducting interviews; working with difficult families; the short and long-term effects of abuse on the development of a child. Currently, there is a great need in our community for GALs and the support they provide children and families, our team and the Court hope you will consider adding value to the program.
Our Guardian ad Litem Training is mandatory if you want to be included on the Superior Court GAL list for Chatham County.

Additionally, all applicants will go through an interview process in order to be added to the training list.
