RCW 11.88.090 is the Washington law that governs appointment of guardians ad litem in guardianship matters filed with the superior court. RCW 11.88.090(3) provides that "Upon receipt of a petition for appointment of guardian or limited guardian, . . . the court shall appoint a guardian ad litem to represent the best interests of the alleged incapacitated person, . . .". RCW 11.88.090(4)(a) provides that "The superior court of each county shall develop and maintain a registry of persons who are willing and qualified to serve as guardians ad litem in guardianship matters. The court shall choose as guardian ad litem a person whose name appears on the registry in a system of consistent rotation, . . .".
Kitsap County Superior Court complies with the provisions of RCW 11.88.090. Our court conducts an annual review of each guardian ad litem's qualifications. Appointment of a guardian ad litem in guardianship cases is based on a strict rotation. The guardians ad litem listed below have met the qualification requirements of RCW 11.88.090(4)(a) and (b). A notebook is maintained in the Kitsap County Superior Court office located in Room 210 of the Kitsap County Courthouse that includes each GAL's qualifications. You
must contact the Kitsap County Superior Court Office to obtain the name of the guardian ad litem next in line for appointment in the strict rotation. The order must be initialed by an appropriate staff member prior to presentation to a judge.
To comply with HIPPA requirements, all requests for GAL fees paid under KCLGALR 5 must include an Order re Guardian ad Litem Fees that may be downloaded in
