Very experienced GAL
She was our GAL and she was very thorough. She spent the time to interview everyone that had direct contact with our children and us. She did not waste money contacting family members that had only seen my kids 6 times in 10 years. She also did not interview people who were former victims of my xspouse. Even though I thought it would be helpful. She donated about 20 hours to finish our case. A commissioner had mistakenly quoted her retainer at 4,000 and her normal retainer is 7,500. It made my x mad. The case finished at 8. In the end after 3 DV arrests [one from another woman] my x was finally ordered to do a year of DV treatment. I don't think it will do any good, but it is on the record now. Lynn listened to my kids, the references, read the police reports, talked to former counselors and read all the written material provided to her. As a concerned citizen myself I would be worried if she wasn't spending time and money being thorough. Lynn investigates what is important and doesn't waste time on interviewing or researching what would not impact your kids. Sometimes the truth hurts.
