What it’s like to be a court-appointed guardian?

The Canton Repository newspaper wrote an excellent article on serving as a court-appointed guardian.  The name used is CASA (court-appointed special advocate) or GAL (guardian ad litum).  CASAs/GALs are typically appointed for incompetent adults, or for children, in court proceedings.  In almost every court, CASAs and GALs are needed.  I like this article’s explanation of what the role requires, and especially how those who’ve served explain what they do. The article focuses on Stark County in NE Ohio, but the roles and experiences apply throughout Ohio.
