Guidelines for Guardians ad Litem in Family Court

Posted by J. Benjamin Stevens | Jan 08, 2008 | 0 Comments

A Guardian ad Litem (GAL) is a person lawfully invested with the power and charged with the duty of protecting a minor child's interests during Family Court litigation.  Have you ever wondered what qualifications and training someone must have to be able to serve as a Guardian ad Litem in Family Court?  If so, or if you are curious as to the specific duties that GALs have in such cases, you should check out the “Guidelines for Guardians ad Litem for Children in Family Court” which was recently revised by the Children's Law Committee of the South Carolina Bar.  This excellent, helpful resource is free and available for download by clicking HERE.
