TO THE COURT:
Nicolasa Gonzales, by and through her attorneys, Black, Chapman, Webber, Stevens, Petersen & Lundblade, hereby apply to this court to be appointed as Guardian ad Litem for plaintiff, Malakai Gonzales.
Nicolasa Gonzales' address is PO Box 71, Macdoel, CA 96058. Her telephone number is (530) 398-4381. The Guardian ad Litem is to represent the interests of Malakai Gonzales. His current address is PO Box 71, Macdoel, CA 96058. His phone number is (530) 398-4381.
The person to be represented is a minor and is not able to represent himself. The court should appoint a Guardian ad Litem because Malakai Gonzales suffered emotional, sexual and physical abuse by the named defendants. Master Gonzales has a number of claims as set forth in the Complaint. A true and correct copy of the Complaint is attached to this application.
The appointment of a Guardian ad Litem is necessary because plaintiff, Malakai Gonzales, is only 6 years old and does not have the ability to bring suit on his own behalf.
The proposed Guardian ad Litem is plaintiff, Malakai Gonzales' grandmother. She has custody of him, and he lives with her fulltime.
Malakai Gonzales' natural parents are not capable of nor do they qualify to be appointed as Guardian ad Litem.
The proposed Guardian ad Litem, Nicolasa Gonzales, is fully competent and qualified to understand and protect the rights of the person she will represent and has no interests adverse to the interests of that person.
