petitioner has made bogus accusations & a GAL was appointed in a child custody case. GAL is leaning toward the respondent for custody & petitioner is on a fishing expedition. so does the respondent have to turn over private journal notes to petitioner as well?GAL already has copies of private journal by respodent that respondent gave to GAL willingly
It is unclear what you are asking. The title of your inquiry asks whether journal entries can be discovered. Generally, the answer is yes, unless there is a legal basis for objecting to the turnover. Not knowing the contents of the journal or the other details of your case, a more specific answer cannot be provided. Since you seem to have some degree of legal sophistication, it appears you are represented by counsel. Therefore, you should consult with your attorney rather than relying on the anonymous answers you might receive on line. If you do not have any attorney, then retain one who is experienced in custody and family matters ASAP. Your issues are complicated and need the special legal services an attorney can provide.
I agree. Sounds like you already have an attorney. Talk to him/her, we're not allowed to give second opinions to knowingly represented persons.
