Guardian Ad Litem (GAL) Standards Task Force Final Report

Group: Ohio Judicial System

URL: http://www.sconet.state.oh.us/Publications/GAL/FinalReport.pdf

Description

Ohio courts appoint guardians ad litem to represent children in proceedings filed in the Domestic, Juvenile, Probate and General Divisions of the Court of Common Pleas. No minimum practice standards exist in Ohio to guide guardians ad litem in performing their primary duty to represent the best interest of the child. The Ohio Supreme Court recognized the important role the guardian ad litem serves in the judicial system and established the Guardian ad Litem Task Force. Chief Justice Thomas J. Moyer appointed Judge David A. Ellwood, Guernsey County Court of Common Pleas, to serve as Chair of the Task Force. The mission of the Task Force was to develop comprehensive practice standards for guardians ad litem who represent children.
