How is a guardian ad litem paid in the state of Ohio?
So here we have court-appointed attorneys who are appointed by the county judges and magistrates for the abuse, neglect and dependency and custody matters. They are paid a statutory rate that is set annually and there is, of course, a cap that is placed on it. But they are chosen by the court appointment office. Once an indigent party requests that a guardian ad litem be appointed to their matter or if a judge or magistrate find this appropriate, a guardian ad litem is appointed and then they're paid once the case ends.
