Employment opportunity helping Maine’s children $100 – $200 per hour!!!

Do you want a high paying career with the potential of earning between $200,000 and $400,000 a year? Can you sit through 16 hours of lectures over three days? If so then you can become a Guardian ad litem and work for Maine’s Judiciary.

The benefits? A binder with loose instructions on what a Guardian ad litem must do. No supervision. No worry about making mistakes. Best of all knowing that Maine’s Justice system will force collection on any bill that you present!

The above ad is made up and is not all that far from the truth. In the state of Maine if you are a lawyer or social worker you can easily become a Guardian ad litem. To do so requires only 16 hours of lectures. There is no test in the end to see if there is an understanding of the concepts discussed, there is no mentoring program administered by the courts. You walk out with only the lecture and a loose leaf notebook to start your career. Upon becoming a Guardian ad litem you can count on Maine’s Court system backing you up. Your recommendations no matter how over the top they may be will be accepted as fact. In no other court that we are aware of is hearsay accepted as fact. As a Guardian ad litem if you have issues collecting from one or both parties involved this is not a problem because Maine’s courts will force the parties to pay by garnishing wages or putting a lien on your home to name a few of the strong arm tactics employed by the courts. There is no step that is too extreme for Guardian ad litem bill collection – keep in mind that it is all done with the child’s best interest. Finally, the role of a Guardian ad litem can profoundly change the way a broken family interacts, and what you do is protected with immunity by Maine’s Court system. It is impossible to remove a Guardian ad litem in this state. Any complaint no matter how horrific the Guardian ad litem may have been is a wasted complaint. Currently there is no functional due process for families.

Maine’s Court system is currently going through a process of trying to repair issues with the Guardian ad litem program. Although the Judicial Branch should be applauded for its efforts in trying to fix many of the problems it should be pointed out that it has taken years to get to this point. It has taken far too long, and there have been many families hurt by a process that is meant to help, but by design only hurts. Maine’s families have suffered enough.

  1. not too far from the actual truth.

    Without due process or oversight, the safety of our children remains a top concern. We need transparency and the ability to question the GAL who is an expert witness that hides behind the judge that appoints him/her. The quasi immunity, they can write whatever they want and be as bias as they want without even backing up what they wrote because you cannot get them into court without waiting forever if your case gets put on the ole trailing docket.

    Then if that GALmisbehaves or doesn’t do what she or he wrote in the contract (if you have one) you have to wait until the divorce is over and then you have to file a complaint to the District Court/Probate Judge who will determine if your cases warrants to be looked at by higher authority. Once that happens, it goes to Judge Mullen or Judge LaVerdiere and it ends right there because the people foxes that are guarding the hen house for the Maine Guardian Ad Litem Institute also rostering these Guardian Ad Litems as well as provide lectures and training to them. The whole system as it is a farce and definitely not consumer friendly at all. Where are you Chief Justice Saufley, you appointed a committee for this but it is stacked against the consumer. People on the committee are called Family Lawyers but are really Guardian Ad Litems, one person from the public and then one from Maine Guardian Ad Litem Institute, well that cancels out that one vote.

    Can we get some oversight? The Safety of Children is at stake here. The best interests of the children has been the mantra, however when GAL’s recommend that the parent with mental health, drug, alcohol and other problems are routinely getting primary custody when another parent is totally sober, it does not compute.

    Please contact your local state representative and let them know we want our children to be safe and we don’t want to bankrupt the family in the process that are fighting to have a relationship with their child.
