IL Lawyer Serves as Guardian ad Litem to Represent Children in Litigation
Court-appointed attorney advocates for minors and others in the Orland Park area
Children are not capable of hiring someone to represent their legal interests when family disputes such as divorce affect their well-being. In these situations, courts will designate a guardian ad litem to ensure that their rights are protected. At Akiwowo Law Group, P.C., we have the experience, knowledge and compassion to deliver comprehensive representation to minors and other individuals in the Orland Park area and throughout Illinois who cannot advocate for themselves.
Law firm provides a full range of services for the youths we assist
At Akiwowo Law Group, P.C., we perform a variety of necessary functions in our role as a guardian ad litem. Those functions include:
- Representation in court — Upon appointment by the court, we will advocate for children in hearings and trials. When necessary, we examine witnesses and argue motions in the same manner as other parties to the litigation.
- Evaluation of pertinent information — As a guardian ad litem, we take our role seriously and review every relevant document in order to understand what is best for the child. We also petition the court to get access to certain materials when appropriate.
- Contact with key individuals — We can obtain professional medical advice when it is required. If others have knowledge that will help the court’s evaluation of the child’s welfare, we can also seek their input.
We perform each task with the appropriate proficiency and sensitivity so that those we represent can move forward with the least possible disruption to their lives.
Proven advocate provides knowledgeable advice to benefit children
After a thorough investigation, we can prepare and deliver a detailed report specifying what is in the child’s best interest. We take a comprehensive approach to our recommendations to help all parties understand the child’s physical, financial, educational and emotional needs. We are committed to providing the advocacy children deserve during difficult circumstances.
