Guardianship

Jacksonville Guardianship Lawyers

GuardianshipA Florida Guardianship attorney or Lawyer helps families deal with incapacitated family members or allows others to take care of minor children. Sometimes companies or individuals take advantage of the elderly and obtain guardianships in an effort to take control of the persons assets. In these cases a dispute may arise and the individual may have created liability for their actions against the elderly person. Our Florida Guardianship Attorneys and Florida Guardianship Lawyers work with Families involved with Florida Guardianships.

In Florida a person can be incapacitated by a court or is deemed to be incapacitated if they are under the age of 18 and not emancipated. When a person is incapacitated the court can appoint a guardian over the person and a guardian over the property of a person. Sometimes these are the same person but they do not have to be.

A parent of a minor child is a natural guardian over the person. Often in cases where minor children receive large sums of money (over $15,000), the court will want to protect the child's assets and establish a guardian over the property of the minor. This is to protect the child from the misuse of a parent or another. When the court establishes a guardian over the property of a minor they have the ability to review and approve the way that the money is spent.

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 a Florida Guardianship Lawyer 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
