Guardianship Law Firm
Illness and injury can cause many individuals to become incapable of handling their own affairs. In other cases, certain individuals are born with a developmental disability that prohibits them from taking care of themselves when they reach the age of adulthood. If you have a loved one that is unable to take care of themselves or their property due to a developmental disability, such as cerebral palsy, or have become incapacitated due to injury or illness, please CALL VIZA law in order to obtain advice and counsel as to certain options allowed under Florida Law, such as the appointment of Guardian over your loved one as well as their property and well being.
An appointed guardian has the responsibility of managing the affairs of the incapacitated adult or minor, known as the “ward,” until they become capable of doing so for themselves. Guardianship is only an option when there is no other legal alternative, such as a trust, durable power of attorney, health care proxy, or other legal measures that the incapacitated adult had put in place for management of their affairs in this type of situation. If you wish to learn more about these different options, please contact VIZA Law.
Seeking guardianship can be a complex and emotionally draining process though the assistance of an experienced Tampa Bay guardianship attorney can ease the stress of the process and ensure your loved one receives the care and guidance they need.
