Guardianship of the Property

Law Office of David M. Goldman PLLC represents individuals and families in Jacksonville and the surrounding areas in Florida Guardianship proceedings and litigation. Our Florida Guardianship Attorneys and Florida Guardianship Lawyers work with Families involved with Florida Guardianships.

The guardian over the property of an individual is in control of their assets. Often these assets are placed in restricted accounts and under court supervision. The court may order a bond to be posted or require approval of all transactions in advance. Often yearly expenses can be approved in advance and when they are not deviated from, the guardian will be free to spend the preapproved funds with the original order.

This type of guardianship can be voluntary when the individual is competent and voluntarily waives their rights. If the person later becomes incompetent a new guardianship will have to be applied for. Along with these it is common to file a preneed guardianship so that in the event an involuntary guardianship is later required their preference for who will be appointed guardian will be known to the court.

If you think a guardianship may be appropriate or are involved in guardianship proceedings and would like representation to help you understand and deal with this complicated process, CONTACT our Florida Guardianship Lawyers by email or call us at 904-685-1200 to discuss your situation today.

After years of trying to protect my assets from creditors, I was shocked to find out that my assets were unprotected in ways I had never considered. Not only had I placed my assets at risk from my mother's creditors, but I had placed my assets at risk from other family members who were intent on manipulation. When my mother died, I discovered that a family member had changed my mother's estate planning documents. Mr. Goldman and his team were able to explain what went wrong and successfully defended my position in court. During the case, I learned that I could have had much better protection from family and creditors, thus avoiding years of litigation and undue familial stress. When it comes to protecting your assets and your family, I would highly recommend hiring Mr. Goldman and his team. Bill H.

As a real estate agent, I have been involved with many property transactions where I needed a probate attorney to help facilitate the transaction. I have used the services of Mr. Goldman and his staff over the last several years and continue to use them on a regular basis. His office has been able to navigate the court system and help estates sell their property quickly and efficiently. In addition, Mr. Goldman can help real estate investors structure trusts to protect their assets from creditors. Michael Starling

She’ll help you save money and time! I spoke to Holli today to help with a traffic violation and she was nothing less than amazing! She replied to all of my emails in a timely manner and insured that i was well aware of all of my options. I will be reccomending Holli to anyone i know that needs legal care! Thank you so much for having patience and taking the time to genuinely help me. The best part about it is that her advice saved me a ton of money because i spoke to a different lawyer from another law firm and they tried to make me pay $1250 without even asking about my case. Thanks again Holli, you’re amazing! Theara
