How often does a judge agree with a guardian ad litem?
It's more common than most folks think, because the guardian ad litem is a mutual non-biased party whose only interest is to perform an investigation and provide a recommendation about what's in the best interest for the child. What the magistrate and the judge, they heavily rely upon the recommendation provided by the guardian ad litem and there are very few times in my career, I may be seen a handful at best times when the judge does not agree with the recommendation of the guardian ad litem because they're neutral. They perform the proper investigation. Most of the time, they're the party who is the only person in the litigation who has had an opportunity to see both sides of the case, as well as provide all information to the court.
