Guardian Ad Litem

Granddaughter and grandfather paintingChild custody disputes are often the most contentious aspect of any divorce. It can be easy to become so focused on doing what is right for your child that the big picture can get lost. That is why it is important to have an impartial party available who can help be an advocate for the best interests of your child. This advocate is known as a guardian ad litem, or GAL. At Bivek Brubaker & Prescott, LLC, our Atlanta guardian ad litem lawyers can serve as a GAL or help guide you through the process when a GAL has been appointed to your case.

A GAL will try to walk the line between what will best serve the needs of the child, as well as the needs of the parents. This involves acting as a parent coordinator and conducting custody evaluations in an effort to determine what the best fit will be in terms of child custody.
