Why does my child have a lawyer?

The role of a Law Guardian

When custody battles get nasty often the Court will appoint a law guardian for your child(ren). This person is a lawyer and they will represent the wishes or what they believe is in the best interest of their client, your child. This relationship has all the confidentiality of any lawyer\client privelege. The lawyer will not speak to you or your ex and does not want you or your ex asking the child what was discussed. Do not feel intimidated by this person - they are not taking over your role.
