Does a child's attorney ad litem usually think highly of the child's therapist's opinion?

Fayetteville, AR |

The child is a school-aged girl and now has an attorney ad litem. She has been seeing a play therapist for a few months now. What I would like to know, is generally speaking, how much does an attorney ad litem usually regard the therapist's opinion? Does that usually weigh heavily on their recommendation they submit to a judge in regards to who should have custody?

  1. It all depends on the child's attorney. My experience has been that a child's therapist, if qualified and experienced, has significant influence on family matters.
