Guardianship Ad Litem
In certain circumstances, the Court is required to appoint a guardian ad litem including when either the Plaintiff or Defendant is a minor under the age of 14 years old, or when an insane or incompetent person is the party to litigation. In guardianship and paternity proceedings the Court may appoint a guardian ad litem. In most cases, a guardian ad litem is appointed to in relation to children and the Court typically requires that the guardian ad litem make recommendations regarding what is in a child’s best interest. The guardian ad litem usually speaks with a child, taking into consideration the child’s wishes; the guardian ad litem may also conduct an investigation to determine what is in the child’s best interest.
