I think your lawyer will know far better what to do than a bunch of strangers on the Internet. Your lawyer went to school and got a license to practice law (at least I hope he did), which is way more than most folks on this forum did (since most are not lawyers), and any lawyer on this forum won’t advise you based just on Internet postings. I’d say relax and do what your lawyer advises you to do.

The guardian ad litem is actually appointed by the court to interview everyone and evaluate what is in the child’s best interests.  They will visit your home and the father’s home, probably multiple times, and interview people your daughter interacts with, like school couselors or teachers.  That said, I think it’s putting the cart before the horse to be meeting with a guardian ad litem before you have a legal document in place stating that one will be appointed and their recommendation will create the new parenting plan.

Assuming you trust your attorney, just do whatever he says.  If you don’t trust your attorney, then get a new one.  A legal expert will be far more use to you than any of us.
