Divorce can be a difficult process that is made even more difficult when children are added into the mix. It is important for parents to look out for the best interests of their child, but sometimes the best interests of the child can get pushed to the wayside in the middle of a heated custody battle. This is where the North Carolina Guardian ad Litem (GAL) program comes into the picture. The GAL program is meant to “serve the best interests of thousands of children by assigning them guardian ad Litem volunteers.” The GAL program is in every county throughout North Carolina and strives to give each child a voice and the attention they need in the midst of a court case. A GAL can be used in other court cases besides divorce and custody disputes, but the focus of this discussion will be in custody agreements.

Custody agreements detail what exactly the arrangement will be between the two parents who will be co-parenting the child.
