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.
