A Guardian Ad Litem For Estate Litigation
When a guardian ad litem (GAL) is established in an estate-related case, one individual is appointed to represent the interests of a minor child. At the law office of Abrams Probate & Planning Group, I can act as a guardian ad litem for your child and effectively advocate for his or her rights in your estate law case.
When Is A Guardian Ad Litem Needed?
Whenever an estate-related issue affects a child, a guardian ad litem may be appointed to represent the interests of the child. Here are a few examples:
- A guardian ad litem should be appointed when there is a conflict between the child’s interests and those of the person who would otherwise represent those interests, such as a parent, legal guardian, receiver or trustee. Similarly, a GAL should be considered for a child whose interests are similar, but not identical to others in similar positions, such as co-beneficiaries.
- A GAL can be appointed as a temporary guardian of the estate of a minor when the child’s legal or financial interests are at stake, but no permanent guardian of the estate has been appointed.
- It is essential to appoint a guardian ad litem whenever questions of fraud, theft or unlawful conversion have been raised regarding a trustee, executor or administrator.
