For many cases that come through the court system, a Guardian ad Litem will be appointed. These court officials are attorneys who are appointed on behalf of children or alleged incompetent individuals. They appear in such cases involving Family Court and adoptions to help determine what is in the best interest of the minor child. The Probate Court appoints them when there are minor guardianships or if there is a minor heir in an estate. Other courts that involve Guardians ad Litem would be in the Juvenile Court in a CHIPS action (Child in Need of Protection and Services) and in the termination of parental rights. Consequently, when you have any court actions involving these situations, it is important to have an attorney that is familiar with the thoughts and the likely recommendation of a Guardian ad Litem.
