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.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
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
