ESTABLISHING LEGAL GUARDIANSHIPS IN JACKSONVILLE, FL
Helping a Loved One Get appointed Guardian If You Become Incapacitated
We all need a little help from time to time, some of us more than others. Children and the elderly need additional support and guidance when making big life or legal decisions. A guardian is a person appointed by a court to care for a person who can’t meet their own needs, known as a ward. There are three types of guardianship in Florida:
- Guardianship of an adult
- Guardianship of a minor
- Guardian advocacy
A Florida guardianship attorney can help you or your loved ones establish the proper guardianship for your unique situation.
WHAT IS FLORIDA GUARDIANSHIP?
A guardianship is a legal proceeding in the Florida courts in which a guardian is appointed to exercise the legal rights of an incapacitated person. A guardian in Florida is an individual or institution (such as a nonprofit corporation or bank trust department) appointed by the court to care for an incapacitated person (ward) or the ward’s assets.
Although the powers and duties of guardians are like the powers and duties of parents concerning minor children, a court can’t appoint a guardian for an adult unless that person is subject to a disability that prevents them from effectively caring for themselves in Florida.
