Guardianship

GuardianshipGuardianship over a person and/or the person's property sometimes becomes necessary due to a person's age, disability, or incapacity. Florida recognizes the least restrictive means method of Guardianship, which means that proper advanced planning by execution of a durable power of attorney, health care directive and/or living will may help avoid costly guardianship altogether. But not all situations lend themselves to advanced planning, and in those situations where none of these documents exist, a person will have to Petition for Incapacity and seek guardianship over the person and/or property. A person for whom a guardian has been appointed is called a "ward" and during the course of the appointment of the guardian over the ward, the court provides careful oversight of the guardian's acts on behalf of the ward by requiring court permission for certain acts, and filing of annual reports and accountings.

Seeking guardianship can be a very emotional, but necessary, undertaking. It is important to choose an attorney who not only understands guardianship laws and procedures to help ensure that all the court's requirements of the guardian are being met during the course of the appointment, but who can guide you through the process with compassion and understanding. Allen Law, P.A. understands and can help.

* Most initial consultations are free for the first thirty minutes; however, some consultations may require a nominal fee that may be credited toward your retainer if you decide to engage our services. Consultations which exceed thirty minutes also may require a nominal fee based on a reduced hourly rate. Initial consultations are extended to first time potential clients on a firm wide basis. Please contact this office in order to determine if your particular issue will require a consultation fee. In the event that you arrive at our office and the legal issue as presented by you does not fall into the practice area where a free consultation is provided, Allen Law reserves the right to charge a fee at that time prior to meeting with you. The purpose of an initial consultation is for the attorney to advise you, the prospective client what, if anything, may be done for you, and what the minimum fee therefore will be. The purpose is not to render a definitive legal opinion as it may be impossible to fully assess a matter within the time frame allotted for a consultation or with the (information or documents) that you may be able to provide at the initial consultation; therefore, the information provided to you at your initial consultation will be general in nature. If you seek specific legal advice, Allen Law, P.A. will be happy to render a legal opinion with regard to your matter at our regular hourly rate.
