@mikkeymim,
This may help you some

It appears that you may have to be an attorney since attorneys have to complete a course to work as guardian ad litems.

Following a link from that page, I found this
Quote:
A. In accordance with the Nebraska Juvenile Code, specifically Neb. Rev. Stat. ยง 43-272(3), only a lawyer duly licensed by the Supreme Court of Nebraska may be appointed to serve as a guardian ad litem for a juvenile.

@mikkeymim,
Although Florida doesn't require GAL's to be attorneys, it looks like Nebraska does.
