Do you have to be a lawyer to be a gaurdian ad litem in the state of Nebraska?
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
A. In accordance with the Nebraska Juvenile Code, specifically Neb. Rev. Stat. § 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.
Although Florida doesn't require GAL's to be attorneys, it looks like Nebraska does.
