TYPES OF GUARDIANSHIPS

A guardianship is where an individual is appointed by the court to make decisions for either a minor or an adult who is suffering from mental and/or physical limitations.

 

There are several different types of guardianships as defined by Chapter 744 of the Florida Statutes:

  • Natural guardians

  • Guardians of minors

  • Claims of minors

  • Emergency temporary guardianship

  • Standby guardianship

  • Preneed guardian and Preneed guardian for minor

  • Foreign guardians

  • Resident guardian of the property of nonresident ward

  • Guardian advocates

WHEN IS A GUARDIANSHIP APPROPRIATE?

In Florida, a guardian for a minor is appropriate where both parents of the child die or cannot care for a child, or when a child receives funds by way of an inheritance or when a child receives resulting funds exceeding statutory limits in a lawsuit. A guardianship is appropriate in an adult situation where an adult's ability to conduct their lives and make decisions has been demonstrated to the court to be in jeopardy or impaired.
