Title 11 Guardianship
Revised Code of Washington (RCW 11.88)
RCW 11 requires the Court to appoint a GAL from a registry in a system of consistent rotation. Family Court Administration maintains the Registry (listed above) and will provide parties the name of the next GAL on the Registry for inclusion in an Order Appointing GAL. An attorney may be provided 3 names from the list in order to expedite the appointment and facilitate ease in finding an available GAL with the fewest communication, but the attorney shall always attempt to contact the first name provided from the registry.
The Court does entertain special, out-of-sequence requests for the appointment of a guardian ad litem when the situation requires particular expertise.
Before the Order is signed by a judicial officer, the availability of the GAL to serve on the particular case should be confirmed by the attorney or self-represented parties.
Please call (360) 709-3295 for the next name on the list.
