If you have a custody fight (battle over physical residence of the child, or parental rights and responsibilities), it is quite likely that a Guardian Ad Litem will be appointed to your case. The role of the Guardian Ad Litem is to do an independent investigation and (if necessary) report to the Court on the best interests of the minor children involved.
When spouses seeking divorce in Maine have minor children, the court can order an investigation by a third party to gather information about the circumstances of the divorce, the parents and the children. This report will go to the court no later than three days before the hearing. Interested parties can request the testimony of the investigator. The couple incurs costs of all or part of the investigation if for any other reason than suspected abuse or neglect.
