Quoting KNZ.:" we never made it to our final trial (where a judge would've just told us the final parenting plan) ... [snip!] ... being kinda messengers between me 'n dude (so we weren't even in the same room) and from that, we got a GREAT parenting plan. "

I thought a guardian ad litem was someone who spoke on behalf of the children in court? Like when you get your kids taken away CPS assigns them a GAL?




I could be COMPLETELY wrong though LOL

They can be used in just regular custody cases.
The one judge explained it to me 'n said it's not as scary as it sounds, ha. They just come 'n check out each home while the kiddos are with each parent 'n report back the kind of environment they're in.

Sorry it took so long to respond. Urs a gal will help you with court and parenting plans. And she will write up a parenting plan which she feels is right and submit it to the judge and see if you agree. My gal did a wonderful job in my court proceedings. She does speak on behalf of the child. She will interview you both and then come up with a decision which she ferls is best for your child.

My ex was fighting me tooth and nail though. I tried reasoning with him but he didnt like the parenting plan i wrote up so i had to get a gal.. she gave him way less then i offered. And the judge agreed to her plan. He was fighting so hard that he made himself look like an ass. He filed a petition trying to stop me getting married... the judge laughed at him. I guess there is such thing as trying to hard.
