The Role of a Guardian Ad Litem in PA Custody Cases

Sometimes, during a PA custody case, the court will appoint a Guardian ad litem ("GAL") to the case. A GAL is appointed to represent the best interest of the child. Basically, the GAL is the child's advocate. The GAL also functions as a caseworker for the child. The GAL will observe the child and report any findings back to the court just like a caseworker in a dependency case would do.
