Central Florida Guardianship Attorney
A guardianship is a legal proceeding in the probate court that allows one person to ask for control of another person’s finances and health care. There must be a demonstrated need for the court’s appointment of a guardian that would generally show that the person cannot make his or her own health care decisions. A guardian will make decisions involving: education, care, health, welfare, place of residence, and types of medical treatment. If a person becomes incapacitated due to an illness or accident and they do not have a durable power of attorney, the court will appoint a guardian. Guardians are appointed because investments, real estate, and other assets could lose their value if left unmanaged, and there are bills to be paid on behalf of the person who is incapacitated.
