The Court may appoint an individual to represent the children in three separate capacities. First, the Court may appoint a Guardian Ad Litem. The Guardian Ad Litem’s responsibility is to perform an investigation and advise the Court as to the child’s best interest. An attorney for the child advocates on behalf of the child and in accordance with the child’s wishes and desires. A child’s representative shall advocate for the child’s best interests but consider the child’s wishes. The appointment of an attorney to fulfill any of these responsibilities is made by the Court and generally paid for by the parties.
