Guardian Ad Litem

What is in the best interest of the child is the watchword of family law courts in Connecticut. As it should be.

When there are contested issues concerning parenting, relocation, custody, education and the like, the court will appoint a professional to represent the child’s best interests as the case proceeds.

That court-appoint professional is a Guardian ad Litem, often known simply as the ‘GAL.’,

In Connecticut, attorneys and mental health professionals are eligible to be appointed as a Guardian ad Litem only after completion of a comprehensive training program.

The GAL’s roles include investigating, meeting with the child, talking with the professionals involved in the children’s lives, encouraging resolution, and making recommendations to the court.

Rich is an experienced and well-versed GAL with the skills and expertise to ensure minor children’s interests do not get lost in process of difficult family disputes.

With a reputation for being fair while tenaciously protecting the child’s interests, Rich has a well-earned reputation as GAL with the courts and clients.
