When Florida Requires A Guardianship
Under Florida law, some basic circumstances may require a guardian for a minor. Among those are minors who inherit property or receive a settlement. According to the Florida courts website, in these instances, a guardian is necessary.
A guardian for a minor’s property has the authority of a plenary guardian. This means they have vast control of the minor’s property and must act as a fiduciary. The guardian must always act in the best interests of their ward.
As this is a high legal standard, you have a lot at stake if the court appoints you as a guardian. We can work with you to ensure that you are doing your duty to manage the affairs of your ward within the law. We help you stay on top of your duties and protect yourself.
