Guardian ad Litem
When two parents divorce, sometimes they disagree about important decisions regarding custody and physical placement, like how much time their children should spend with each parent, where their children should live, and how they should make major decisions about health care and education for their children during and after the divorce. When these disagreements arise, often the divorce court appoints an attorney, called a guardian ad litem, to represent the best interests of the children. Serving as a guardian ad litem requires a thorough knowledge of the substantive law and specialized procedural requirements, but also calls for sensitivity to and an understanding of the developmental needs of children.
The attorneys of Balisle & Roberson, S.C. have advanced training in guardian ad litem representation and regularly accept court appointments as guardians ad litem in Dane County both in the family law context, as well as in situations in which minors are involved in personal injury settlements.
