I am trying to obtain Discovery from a guardian ad litem in

Customer Question

I am trying to obtain Discovery from a guardian ad litem in the state of Illinois
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: This is been going on for a year-and-a-half my lawyer decided to quit after I insisted she proved that the guardian ad litem lied. My ex's daughter son and father are on my side and he filed a false report and I have three Witnesses willing to say that he lied in his report
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: Now that I'm representing myself I understand that the ad litem has to talk to me but he refuses to says he will see me in court that's all I get
JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?
Customer: State of Illinois
JA: Huh?
Customer: I guess I'm in the wrong state

Also, I can only answer the questions you specifically ask and based on the facts that you give so please be sure that you ask the questions you want to ask and provide all necessary facts.

I'm not sure what you read that states the GAL "has to talk" to you, but that is incorrect.

What question did you have about getting discovery?
