What Do I Do If I Don't Agree With The Guardian ad Litem's Recommendation?

Dear Attorneys,

I have a pending custody matter, and a Guardian ad Litem was appointed for my children. They recently gave their recommendation, and I definitely do not agree. Is there anything I can do?

Sincerely,

In Disagreement

 

Dear Disagreement,

It’s not uncommon for one parent (or both parents) to disagree with the Guardian ad Litem’s recommendation. While we completely understand why you may feel that way, it is imperative to work with the GAL to either further understand that recommendation or attempt to make changes.

The first step is to talk with your attorney, if you have one. Discuss what changes you would like to see, find out if those changes would be feasible, and establish a course of action. Then have your attorney speak with the GAL, maybe even have a group conference. You can find out why the recommendation is the way it is and see if there is room for negotiation and/or compromise.
