CT Statute 46b-136 governs the GAL process. However, the statute states that the GAL represents the child, so the regular discovery rules govern having to depose the GAL and they can claim privilege for some of the information you are seeking under the attorney client privilege. This is one of the big issues with the GAL in CT.

So I guess they have atty-client privilege on case notes with the kids.


I was unclear about your former comment re. impeaching. The situation is that the GAL took the fraudulent doc into court and introduced it but did not speak about it. I think she perpetrated a fraud on the court because she never investigated the report and introduced it in court. She never actually filed it . She also lied about when she received the report and used it as the basis for her horrendous "recommendations ten months ago which has resulted in very little contact between me and the kids-- if this can be proved-- do I have grounds for impeachment? And how does an atty miss the fact that there was no signature? Is this possible or deliberate also ex's atty also supposedly did not notice there was signature????

They can have attorney client privilege regarding communications with the children. However, the fraudulent document, if you prove it is fraudulent, then you have ground to file a motion for sanctions and also a complaint with the state bar office of disciplinary counsel if the GAL is an attorney.

You are asking a million dollar question about noticing a missing signature and your guess is as good as mine as to why the attorney may have missed that signature not being on the document and any answer I give you on that would be pure speculation.
