I have been ordered to pay an advance toward services of GAL in a divorce
case which does not have jurisdiction over the children because there is another case in Family Services which has precedence. Previously, the judge appointed GAL, we paid for her services, and then it was discovered that GAL had no jurisdiction and she was dismissed. Many months passed, and the judge is doing the same thing. I think she simply forgot that she doesn't have jurisdiction, and that all I need to do is make this point clear. However, I no longer have an attorney (cannot afford) and do not know how to object to the court order to pay for GAL. Can I simply write a pro se
objection to the order, explaining these details?
JA: Because family law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: No, the order just arrived from the judge. Both the petitioner and respondent
agree that this order should be dropped, but nothing has been done yet.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: No. However, I'm not able to find how much this service will cost, can you point me to where I can find details?
JA: It can cost anywhere from $10 to $100, depending on the type of issue and how much of the Lawyer's time your question is expected to take (how complex and lengthy an answer you require).
Customer: ok thank you
