Guardian ad Litem
A Category F Guardian ad Litem (GAL) is a person that is appointed by the Probate and Family Court to investigate any case where children are involved, and provide the court with factual information that will assist the judge in making decisions about the child’s best interest. Parties often request the services of a GAL in family law cases that involve such matters as custody, visitation, paternity, removal of a child to another state, parental fitness and any other matter that implicates the welfare of a child. The parties can agree to choose a GAL for the judge to appoint, or the court will appoint one from a list.
