Safeguard A Child's Well-Being With A Guardian Ad Litem
Protection For Children During Legal Proceedings
If a child is involved in a custody dispute or a visitation quarrel, or if that child has allegedly been abused or neglected as defined in the Virginia Code §16.1-228, the court will appoint a Guardian Ad Litem to act as the child's attorney. The Coastal Virginia Law Firm of Brook M. Thibault & Associates P.C. can serve as Guardian Ad Litem if your case demands one!
The rules and conditions under which a Guardian Ad Litem can be appointed by the court are dictated by the Virginia Code §16.1-266. In Virginia, your child's Guardian Ad Litem is a lawyer who completes specialized training in order to represent children and incapacitated adults.
Only a qualified attorney can be appointed to your case by the court, and our attorneys receive ongoing training to remain qualified to serve as a court-appointed legal guardian.
Are There Other Reasons For Appointing A Guardian?
While most Guardian Ad Litems are appointed by the court, Guardians can also be used to represent the interests of a child or an incapacitated adult with certain permissions from the court and only in certain cases.
