GUARDIAN AD LITEM
I have served in Guardian ad Litem positions for different courts for over 20 years. Since I worked as an Assistant Public Defender for about 4 years, I had 200-300 children on my caseload at any one time. It was my responsibility to review all of the reports and evidence, interview the children and parents, listen to any testimony and cross examine witnesses if needed, then make a  recommendation as to what type of living arrangement and services that I deemed to be best for each child and why.
I have served as a Guardian ad Litem in cases involving children in parental responsibility and parenting time, juvenile court, guardianship, and adoption cases. Juvenile court cases involve child abuse, child neglect, child delinquency and child dependency actions.
If you would like to have me appointed as your Guardian ad Litem, you must tell your lawyer or the
Court that you want to have me appointed. Lawyers and judges determine who gets the appointments for Guardians ad Litem. In some cases, Guardians ad Litem are paid for by the county. Sometimes, the attorneys’ fees for a Guardian ad Litem are paid for by the parties, apportioned in some way that the Court deems to be appropriate based upon the relative financial circumstances of the parties.
