Guardian ad Litem
A Guardian ad Litem (GAL) is a person appointed by the Court to investigate the facts of a case and report to the Court.
Karen J. Levitt at Levitt Family Law & Mediation has served as Guardian ad Litem in a wide variety of family law cases.
The Guardian ad Litem may make recommendations to the Court, but only if requested by the Judge. A Guardian ad Litem may be appointed in a divorce or paternity action where there is a custodial or parenting plan dispute, in a guardianship, or other matters involving the person or estate of a child or adult. A Guardian ad Litem does a comprehensive investigation in order to provide the Court with information that will help the Court make decisions in that case about the child(ren) or adult that is the subject of the court proceeding.
Karen J. Levitt has the experience in conducting the responsibilities of a Guardian ad Litem in many family law matters including divorce, paternity, custody, parenting plans, visitation, relocation/residency of children, guardianship, and other complex family legal matters.
