Guardians ad Litem follow the child's case by visiting with teachers, doctors, therapists, family members, foster families and the child. They then report their findings back to a judge to help with the ultimate decision.

According to the Office of the Legislative Auditor, in Minnesota, there are roughly 500 children who don't have a Guardian ad Litem watching over them in times that could shape the rest of their lives.
