Guardian Ad Litem Policies

Annual Registration Fee Waiver
In cases of financial hardship, a guardian ad litem (GAL)may request that the GAL Review Board waive the annual registration fee obligation provided for in Rule 8(a) of the Maine Rules for Guardians ad Litem by submitting a written request to the Executive Director of the Board of Overseers of the Bar.  The request shall contain a full explanation of the circumstances necessitating such a waiver.  Upon review of the waiver request and any supporting documents, the Executive Director may grant a license fee waiver.  If the Executive Director denies the waiver, the GAL shall have 30 days from the date of denial to submit a request to the Executive Director for reconsideration by the Chair or the Vice Chair of the GAL Review Board.
