Guardian Ad Litem
Jennifer did an excellent job with my child custody. She kept me informed and made sure my child was safe throughout the process. This isn’t just a job to her, she cares about her clients.
What is a Guardian Ad Litem?
The term guardian “ad litem” comes from Latin, and means guardian “for the case.” A Guardian ad Litem advocate is a trained community volunteer who is appointed and determines the needs of abused and neglected children in the court system. In court, they serve as an important voice for the child and make sure to represent the child’s best interest in custody cases.
Do you need a Guardian ad Litem?
Divorce is one of the three hardest things for a child to experience before adulthood. A Guardian Ad Litem is often used to represent your child in a custody proceeding. This avoids your child having to testify in court or allows an independent third party to investigate issues effecting the child. Any Guardian Ad Litem inquiry should come through your attorney and fees associated with the same are on a sliding scale based on income.
There are no words to express how thankful I was to have Jennifer by my side through my custody battle! This was the scariest time of my life and to have the most trustworthy attorney makes it all that much easier…whenever I felt stressed out Jennifer always made me feel confident and calm again!
