Earlier this month, The Connecticut Law Tribune reported that a number of the state’s guardian ad litem lawyers had withdrawn from their child custody cases. Their actions came in response to growing tension within the family court system, where parents and advocates have ridiculed custody professionals for their high fees and lack of oversight.

This hour, we take a closer look at some of the issues within Connecticut’s family court system. A state task force is looking into what some have called a broken system. What’s fueling the tension between families and family courts? What can be done to resolve it?

  • Attorney Jeffrey Mickelson - Guardian ad litem
  • Dr. Elizabeth Thayer - Partner at Beacon Behavioral Services, LLC
  • State Representative Edwin Vargas - Representative for the 6th Assembly District
