Has anyone had much experience with a GAL? Both DH and BM have requested that the kids be assigned a GAL for the custody suit. One of the problems we have been having with the kids is BM and BM's mother teaching the kids to lie about what goes on at BMs and just lie in general. I am wondering if they convince the kids to lie to GAL if GAL will be able to tell? If GAL does suspect they have been convinced to say certain things will he tell the judge that? The family court system in WV is VERY biased to BMs I am just afraid that skids will lie and all we have been doing will be for nothing. I am trying to get an idea of what exactly a GAL does. I know they are like a lawyer that is just for the children but other than that I have no idea.
