BROWARD, MIAMI-DADE, PALM BEACH COUNTIES, FT. LAUDERDALE, BOCA RATON, FLORIDA GUARDIANSHIP ATTORNEY
A guardianship is a legal relationship created when a person or institution is named in a will or assigned by the court to take care of minor children or incompetent adults.
Guardianships are commonly used for seniors who become unable to manage their affairs late in life or for a minor. In the case of a minor, it is usually where a minor stands to inherit large amounts of property or money or if their parents are deceased or unable to take care of them.
