Guardianship Process

First, let’s start with the basics. A guardian is appointed by a court to make decisions on behalf of a person who is unable to make such decisions themselves. This person, referred to as a ward, may be a minor or an adult who is incapacitated due to illness or injury.

In Florida, the guardianship process involves six main steps. These steps are:

  1. Filing a Petition for Appointment of Guardian
  2. Serving Notice and Conducting an Examination
  3. Appointment of a Guardian
  4. Ad Litem
  5. Appointment of a Guardian
  6. Inventory and Annual Accounting
  7. Termination of Guardianship

Our team of experienced attorneys will guide you through each step of the process, ensuring that you understand your rights and responsibilities as a guardian. We understand that the guardianship process can be emotional and overwhelming, which is why we strive to make the process as seamless as possible.
