Temporary Guardianship of Minor Chidren

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.

Many minor children are being cared for by members of their extended families. The Florida Statutes allow for an extended family member to be awarded Temporary Custody of a Minor Children without going through the more formalized and expensive guardianship process. If a family member does not have a legal document which explains their relationship to the child they are often unable to consent to the care of the child by third parties.

Having a Florida Order Granting Temporary Custody of a Minor Child by an Extended Family Member will enable that person to consent to various types of healthcare for the child, secure copies of the child’s records, held by third parties, as well as enroll the child in school and grant or withhold consent for a child to be enrolled in special school programs, among other things which provide for the best interest and care of the Florida minor child.

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 sitution 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
This office is fantastic. I was faced with a horrible situation and this office helped to put an end to the untenable situation. Ms. Kendal Schoepfer was always available before, during, and after office hours to answer any questions that I had. I highly recommend this law office to all. Tisha Brown
