Guardianship Problems? Pick Porter!

Guardianship Attorney in Jacksonville

Answers to Your Questions about Guardianship

According to the state of Florida, a legal guardian is a person appointed by the court to care for another person, called a "ward," and sometimes for the ward's assets as well. The ward is usually a minor under the age of eighteen, but they may also be an adult with special needs. When family issues arise and the question of guardianship is brought up, it is wise to consult a Jacksonville family law attorney.

If the ward is a minor and no guardian is stated in a will, the court will typically choose a guardian who has close relational ties to the ward, such as a family member or family friend. An emergency guardian in the state of Florida can be appointed in three to five days, but regular guardianship can take around a month to become finalized. When a guardian is chosen, he or she may decide what medical and personal care services are appropriate and best suited for the ward.
