- Wills: A will is a declaration in which an individual provides for the distribution of his or her property upon death and nominates a representative to manage his or her estate upon demise.
- Living wills: A living will is a document that indicates to your doctors and other medical care providers what type of life-sustaining measures you want to be taken in the event of your incapacitation. This could include information about food, hydration and organ donation.
- Health care surrogate: A health care surrogate is a designated person who has the power to make medical and health care decisions for you in the event of your incapacitation.

Helping You With Florida Guardianships
A minor child who inherits money or property may need to have a guardian of the property appointed to oversee these assets. The guardian of the property must file reports and accountings and meet other requirements. The lawyers at our firm have experience representing guardians and assisting them in meeting these requirements.
In addition, an adult who is incapacitated may need to have a legal guardian appointed. The process involves a hearing on a petition for incapacity, an examination by a committee and the filing of several documents. The guardian of a person must also file reports and may have to file accountings, as well as meet other requirements. Our legal team has experience representing families through the process and assisting guardians in meeting the court’s requirements.
