Children are the heart and soul of many court disputes between family members. It is their homes, their lives, their schedules, and their hopes and dreams that are affected every day at court. And yet, their voices are rarely heard. A Guardian ad Litem is an attorney appointed by the court specifically to represent a child’s best interests in a pending court case. The attorneys at The Morehouse Law Firm take great pleasure in providing such services and can frequently be found at court fighting for the rights of our country’s most precious assets – our children.
Guardian ad Litems are also appointed to represent elderly, disabled, or incapacitated adults when others seek to have guardians appointed for them. Our attorneys carefully scrutinize each situation to make a recommendation about whether the guardianship is necessary and whether the suggested guardian is the proper person for the appointment.
The attorneys at The Morehouse Law Firm also serve as a Guardian ad Litem in many other types of court cases, receiving frequent appointments by judges in the Circuit Courts and Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Courts of Northern Virginia. They consider it an honor to give back to their community by aggressively protecting the legal rights of those too vulnerable to protect themselves.
Whether you are considering Guardian ad Litem services for yourself, a friend, or family member, The Morehouse Law Firm will provide you a compassionate and knowledgeable path forward. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
