What’s A Law Guardian In A Queens Divorce?

The law guardian is an attorney who is appointed by the judge in your divorce action to represent the interests of your children.

Law guardians talk to the children, the parents, and may also meet with school officials, the child’s therapist, and other appropriate parties to get a feel for what constitutes the best interests of the children.

As a parent with a competing custody or visitation agreement, you’ll be expected to provide an overview of your parenting relationship, and explain how the agreement you have proposed supports the best interests of the child.

The law guardian isn’t there to referee disputes between you and your spouse, but only to act as the child’s advocate in the case.

At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we make sure you are fully prepared for all interactions with law guardians and that your custody petition is of the highest quality.
