   The purpose of these guidelines is to ensure that the legal and best interests of juveniles in dependency and abuse/neglect proceedings initiated under the Nebraska Juvenile Code are effectively represented by their court-appointed guardians ad litem. These guidelines are also intended to ensure that such interests of juveniles involved in delinquency, status offense, or other proceedings initiated under the Nebraska Juvenile Code are effectively protected when a guardian ad litem has been appointed. The provisions of these guidelines, unless otherwise noted herein, set forth “best practice” recommendations only and are not intended as Supreme Court rules.
