Today’s Straight Talk: What does a Law Guardian Do?
If you have children, a court and a judge may order what is called a Law Guardian or what is now called the Attorney for the Child. And that person is the attorney for your child.
They represent your child’s interests, not your interests, and not your spouse’s interests. That person will typically meet with the child and see what the child’s wishes and wants are. And make sure that the child is being taken care of in the divorce and after the divorce.
