A Guardian ad Litem (GAL) is a trained, court-appointed volunteer who advocates objectively and solely for the best interests of children who are abused, abandoned or neglected and who are involved in dependency court proceedings.
A GAL serves as the eyes, ears and arms of the justice system. They identify the best possible result for each child whose care is the responsibility of the state.
