  1. I do not think a Guardian Ad Litem has to certified in Alabama, but does have to be approved by the court. I suggest you obtain another lawyer's advice and give him or her specific information- but not on line- for an opinion.

    Any response given is not to be taken as legal advice or to create an attorney client relationship.
