A Miami guardianship attorney can assist you to determine whether Florida Guardianship is required for your loved one. In a Guardianship proceeding, certain rights of the Ward are removed and delegated to the appointed guardian.
There are two general categories of guardianship: guardianship of the person and guardianship of the property:
A guardian for the person will have the right to make decision for the Ward in regard to medical care, determine residency of the ward, and to make decisions about the Ward’s social environment or other social aspects. Fla. Stat. § 744.3215(3)(e)-(g).
A guardian of the property will have the right to enter into contracts, conduct litigation, apply for government benefits, and manage property of the Ward. Fla. Stat. § 744.3215(3)(a)-(d). The guardian will only have those rights as removed by the Court.
