Guardian Ad Litem Services Work For Children In The Dependency System
Overwhelmed. There might not a better word to describe how you feel when you go through court proceedings. The situation becomes even more stressful when allegations of abuse, neglect or abandonment surface.
The Guardian Ad Litem program, managed through Florida’s Department of Children and Families, makes it less overwhelming for them. Attorney Roe Minaya from The Minaya Law Offices, PLLC, works for other attorneys, parents and judges who hire her for guardian ad litem services.
Hire Florida’s Former Assistant Attorney General To Work For You
Attorney Minaya was the Assistant Attorney General for the State of Florida. She regularly litigated difficult family-related cases. As everyone knows, those cases can be extremely difficult for children. Sometimes, there are details – like abandonment, abuse and neglect – that make it even harder for them.
She took her experience in the Attorney General’s office into private practice as a family law attorney. Many children do not understand what is happening. The Guardian Ad Litem brings someone to them who supports them, gives them a voice and helps them away from court.
In 35 years, over 200,000 children age 17 and younger, who are in the dependency system have been helped by the Guardian Ad Litem program. They might have to gather information from schools, pediatricians and others to make recommendations to the court.
