Is it a conflict of interest that only one side is paying the Guardian Ad Litem
1 attorney answer
In many cases the party with the higher financial means ends up paying for services, such as a Guardian ad Litem. That alone does not create bias; neither does the bankruptcy of the GAL alone. If there are other activities or elements that concern you, you do have the right to bring those up to the judge. I hope you have been able to overcome your illness and are doing better.
