Guardian Ad Litem
Our blog today for our Metro Atlanta Divorce Lawyers Blog is in regard to the program of Guardian Ad Litem in Cobb County. A guardian ad litem is an attorney who has had at least 20 hours of specialized training for child welfare and custody issues. In contested child custody cases, modifications of custody, modification of visitation, allegations of neglect or abuse, the court may assign a guardian ad litem to evaluate more closely the situation and report to the court their observations. The Court or the guardian ad litem may order psychological evaluations and drug testing where appropriate to help make a custody determination.
The cost of a guardian ad litem can be quite high for most divorces in Georgia. Litigants should be aware that Cobb and Cherokee County provides a guardian ad litem (GAL) at a reduced rate per hour.
