Frequently Asked Questions
expand  Are all GALs part of your program?
expand  Are GALs attorneys?

While a GAL can be an attorney by profession, when she or he is serving as a GAL he or she is not an attorney for that child or for the case. The child will be assigned an attorney who will be responsible for making all legal arguments throughout a case.

expand  Are GALs paid?
expand  Can I be a GAL if I have a full-time job?

Absolutely. Our volunteers include many people who also have a full time job. However, please note that hearings are held during regular business hours which mean you should clear this with your employer prior to becoming a GAL. The program can verify your volunteer hours if your employer sponsors a community service program. You will also want to make sure to maintain a caseload that works for you and your employer.
