Mr. Taradash is a court appointed child’s representative/guard ad litem. Serving as an advocate on behalf of children is especially important to Mr. Taradash. Children, far too often, are used as pawns by their parents in order to win custody battles. Mr. Taradash has seen how children’s lives have been turned upside down because their parents selfishly attempt to alienate them from the other parent. Mr. Taradash recognizes the value and importance of having both parents be as fully devoted to their children as possible, especially when going through a divorce. It’s very important for parents to understand that although the bonds of matrimony are being dissolved, the parents are still family. They will always be mom and dad to their children. Like it or not, they will be involved with each other, as parents, for the next several decades.
