What is a guardian ad litem?

Return to FAQ Videos


The guardian ad litem is a third party generally, but not always an attorney, that’s appointed by the court in cases where custody is a dispute. The guardian ad litem’s goal is to represent the best interest of the child or children at issue in that case, and to investigate all the facts and circumstances and make a recommendation to the parties and to the court as to what custody and parenting time arrangements would be in the best interest of those children.
