GAL showing children court documents
« on: Sep 15, 2006, 05:48:02 AM »
SOC,

After not having seen my children for over one year I decided it was time to try one last time. Shortly after having my ex served, the children (15&12) were brought, by their mom, to see their GAL.  That evening I received a horrifying email from my oldest. The email made it very clear that she had been given the papers from the court to read and she was enraged.  The GAL never spoke to me, hasn't talked to me in 4 years, and told my children she was going to "take care of him in court".  I know these things because of a small miracle that took place the day after receihving my daughters email.  Without getting into the details, my oldest daughter and I have started talking and spending some time together. I can't help the horror I feel inside. I realize that family court is severely broken, but what is the meaning of promoting anger, hate, and aggression in our children toward one of their parents.

1)Why would a GAL do such a thing?  
2)Is this legal? If not, is it just another unjust act that we must contend with?

I don't know. Why don't you ask the GAL, and remove the element of doubt.

Court records are public documents. If you file something that was inflamatory, it may someday catch fire.

PS. By suggesting that this is just another "unjust act" of the "severely broken" family court, you are using this forum as a vehicle to vent your hostility towards the system, rather than to achieve any sort of positive outcome for yourserlf and your children. I will not permit this, to continue, so, if the next post is similar, I will delete the entire thread and any subsquent posts.

So, do you have any questions relevant to your case?
