I am your child's GAL. Feel free to ask your questions.
For all intents and purposes, I am your child's guardian ad litem. I will not be insulted or have anecdotal information spewed at me as if I am responsible for the conduct of all GALs, nor will I rehash the outcomes of cases, but I am happy to answer any questions anyone has about the process, or about how you can best help your GAL get your side of your case.
For your information, I am a county GAL (handling all abuse and neglect cases in a metro/rural county), and I am also a CASA (volunteer as well as attorney for CASA). In addition, I do some domestic GAL work (but only when I am appointed - I have way too many cases already). I'm also a mom of five and a stepmom of two. I've been divorced and share custody; I have also dealt with my husband's ongoing custody and support issues at his side not as a GAL or attorney but as his wife. I may be uniquely suited to help some of you understand the process even as I quickly add that nothing said here constitutes legal advice per se, and nothing said here forms a attorney-client relationsip, with the privileges and duties therein waived by this notice.
