Case Consultants

Wyoming Office of Guardian ad Litem offers attorney GALs the option to work or consult with a Case Consultant (CC) who contracts directly with the agency. CCs are professionals who work with the attorney GAL as part of the child’s legal team to contribute expertise and experience in social work, counseling, child development, education, and other fields. Their expertise enhances the attorney GAL’s independent investigation and legal positions. Use of CCs can expedite time to permanency and case resolution, increase reunification, improve preservation of family connections, and increase adoption. The ABA, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Children’s Bureau, and NACC recognize the importance of this interdisciplinary team approach.
