Guardianship

Guardianship is a legal process used when a person can no longer make safe or sound personal and/or property decisions or has become susceptible to fraud or undue influence. 

A guardian is a person appointed by a local court to manage the affairs of such a person, called a ward. Establishing a guardianship may remove considerable rights from an individual. Therefore, it should only be considered after alternatives to guardianship have proven ineffective or unavailable. Florida has specific laws which are designed to protect the interests of the ward. These laws govern the guardianship proceedings and the guardian's activities and decisions and require an annual report to the court by the appointed guardian.

There are two basic types of guardianship--guardianship of the person and guardianship of the property or estate. Guardianship of the person may include decisions about medical treatment, place of residence, release of confidential information, consent and monitoring of non-medical services, and end-of-life decisions. Guardianship of the property or estate includes both real and personal property and may include decisions about protection or appraisal and sale of property (with court approval), receiving income for the estate, and making appropriate disbursements.

As a Florida registered guardian, we can provide guardianship services to individuals who may be in need of these services. We are a member of the National Guardianship Association, the Florida State Guardianship Association (FSGA), and the Central Florida Chapter of FSGA.
