Divorcing parents often fight over custody of their children.

Probate Information CenterDivorcing parents often fight over custody of their children. Judges are responsible for deciding with whom and on what terms the children of a divorce will live and visit. To determine the children’s best interests, especially in high conflict cases where the parents argue every assertion the other makes, the Judges frequently ask to have the help of a Guardian ad Litem.

Poor families cannot afford to hire a Guardian; in those cases, Fulton County Judges call AVLF’s Guardian ad Litem Program for help.
