Guardian Ad Litem - Compensation by Adverse Party.


September 18, 1984


It is not improper for an attorney serving as an inmate's guardian ad

litem to be compensated for his services by the adverse party in a suit

for a no-fault divorce brought by the inmate's wife, when the attorney has

given the inmate full and adequate disclosure and the inmate has consented

thereto. [ DR:5-106(A)(1), LE Op. 385]
