The Title 11.88 GAL Registry is provided for reference only; do not have a GAL appointed on a guardianship case prior to contacting Court Administration. Also, please note that GALs must be listed on this registry in order to accept cases in Benton and Franklin Counties.
For Title 11.88:
Per RCW 11.88.090 and Local Guardian Ad Litem Rule 5, Title 11.88 GAL appointments from the Guardianship registry are made on a rotational basis.
