A guardian is a surrogate decision-maker appointed by the court to make personal and/or financial decisions for a minor or for an adult with mental and/or physical disabilities. After adjudication, the subject of the guardianship is termed a “ward.” Florida law provides for the appointment of a guardian for a minor in circumstances such as where the parents die, are unable to care for a child, or if a child receives an inheritance or proceeds of a lawsuit or insurance policy exceeding the amount parents are allowed by statute to receive on behalf of their child.
Adult guardianship is the process by which the court finds an individual’s ability to make decisions is impaired, therefore the court gives the right to make decisions to another person or entity. Guardianship is only warranted when no less restrictive alternatives, such as a durable power of attorney, a trust, a health care surrogate or proxy, or another form of pre-need directive, are found by the court to be appropriate and available. Legislative intent establishes that the least restrictive form of guardianship is desirable, if it is in the best interest of the ward.
