Guardian Ad Litem
The Texas Family Code defines “guardian ad litem” as “a person appointed to represent the best interests of a child.” … The GAL court appointment entitles CASA volunteers to have access to all records regarding the child’s situation, including medical, therapeutic, educational and other pertinent records.
Any party may request a guardian ad litem in Texas family courts or the court may appoint one on its own. The guardian ad litem’s role is informative. He or she does not represent the child in court. A child may have an attorney ad litem appointed by the court.
