Standby Guardian

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 Jacksonville Guardianship Lawyers work with Families involved with Florida Guardianships.

Upon petition by the natural guardians of a minor or an appointed guardian of the person or property of an incapacitated person, the court may appoint a standby guardian. The standby guardian assumes the guardianship duties immediately upon the incapacity, removal, resignation, or death of the current guardian.  Within 20 days after assumption of duties, the standby guardian must petition for confirmation of the appointment, and the court must confirm the standby guardian if the person is qualified to serve.

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 US by email or call us at 904-685-1200 to discuss your situation today.
