I reviewed your question and I'm happy to help. To clarify, do you have concerns over the guardian ad litem's findings?

Nisha Jones, Expert

I'm sorry to hear that. Thanks for clarifying. Yes, you will need to file a motion requesting permission from the court to file the interrogatories directly to the guardian ad litem. Since they technically are not a party to the case you will need to specifically request the court's permission first.

I hope that helps! Let me know if you still have any questions about this. I'm here to help.

Customer
How long will the courts take to respond ?
img

Nisha Jones, Expert

It depends on your court's docket, but the response should be fairly quick. It should not take any longer than 1 to 2 weeks to receive a response from the court. I hope that information helps.

Customer
if granted how long will the GAL has to respond ?
img

Nisha Jones, Expert

They would have 30 days to file their response. I hope that helps clarify.

Customer
what happens if the GAL is unable to answer part of all of the questions ? Which actions can we take
img

Nisha Jones, Expert

They should file a response for each paragraph of your interrogatory. Once their responses are filed with the court, you can request a hearing date to address any concerns you have.

Customer
how do court take to hear an emergency custody order ?
img

Nisha Jones, Expert

Are you referring to a temporary emergency custody order?

Customer
Hi
img

Nisha Jones, Expert

The hearing for a temporary emergency custody order can typically be scheduled within 24 to 48 hours after filing your request, due to the emergent nature of this type of order. Again it does depend on the court's docket and scheduling availability, but typically you can receive a hearing date in as little as 24 to 48 hours after filing your request. I hope that information helps.

Customer
Thank you
