A guardianship may be necessary for a variety of reasons. Some reasons include: (1) when a loved one becomes incapacitated through mental health issues, (2) when a loved one has a debilitating injury or condition, (3) when a minor child receives an inheritance, or (4) when a minor receives proceeds from a settlement.
In Florida, an attorney must represent the guardian seeking the guardianship. This process requires a determination of incapacity through an evaluation by a three member examining committee and the appointment of a guardian.
Guardianship is designed to protect the rights and welfare of incapacitated persons and to safeguard their assets. It can be a complicated process that is best performed by an experienced attorney. Contact us to tell us about your situation.
