Guardian Ad Litem Report


When injuries to children are the subject of settlement, Courts often appoint an attorney to represent the children for the purpose of determining whether the settlement offered is what is best for the child. The idea is that it is possible that the child’s parent or guardian might be swayed by the thought of instant payment or might accept a settlement that allows the parent to use the money in a manner that is not in the child’s best interest. This is especially true in cases in which the child has suffered an injury from which they will not fully recover. The attorney appointed for the children is known as a guardian ad litem. The guardian ad litem investigates and prepares a report for the court.
