I have no spousal support at the moment. I have applied for welfare. My husband will give me nothing. He will not let me speak to my girls.. the situation is awful. We definitely need a guardian ad litem but I have no money to pay for one. Please help.
There are some guardians that courts can appoint who work pro bono. However, in most instances, the court will split the cost of a guardian "pro rata," that is, in accordance with each parties' financial contribution to the total net income of the parents. Thus, you should not be required to pay more than you can afford.
