Protecting Your Child’s Best Interests

Protecting Your Child’s Best Interests

connecticut guardian ad litem

When you’re going throughout the divorce proves, this can be difficult for the couple involved, but very challenging for children of all ages. For younger children, the court may appoint someone to make sure the best interests of the kids are being served. At the law offices of Charles & Concilio, LLC in Greenwich, CT, we’re going talk about the importance of a Guardian Ad Litem.

Divorce and Custody

Our practice is experience in handling family law matters of all kinds, including divorce and custody. We’ve licensed to practice in four states and have helped settle acrimonious divorces and find suitable custody agreements that are fair for not only the couple separating, but the children as well. When these difficult and emotionally fraught issues arise, we want to make sure you have someone in your corner, and that someone is watching out for your child’s best interests. Luckily, in many cases the judge in the case may recommend a Guardian Ad Litem to keep the best interests of your child in focus.

Guardian Ad Litem

When parents cannot come to an agreement regarding a plan for their children, then the courts in Connecticut could order a Guardian Ad Litem, someone who’s job is to represent your child and what is best for him or her. They don’t report to you or your spouse, and thy don’t make court decision, only recommendations. Becoming a certified Guardian Ad Litem means a very extensive training program is completed, which is sponsored by the Judicial Branch. The person may interview the child, investigating facts, and reviews files pertaining to the case. They could also speak with teachers, coaches, medical professionals, and anyone else who has contact with your child in order to make the most informed recommendations for the court. If we’re representing you, the judge will appoint an unaffiliated Guardian Ad Litem from the state-wide list of approved GAL attorneys. We have trained practice members who can act as a Guardian Ad Litem in cases. 

If you have any questions about helping your family and children throughout the divorce process, or about settling custody or making sure someone is on hand to serve your child’s best interests, then please feel free to reach out to our practice. We look forward to helping you navigate the world of family law, so your family can move on to the next stage of your lives.
