Preneed Guardian in St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Tampa, Sarasota and surrounding West Florida areas.
In the event that a person becomes incapacitated, it may be necessary to appoint a guardian to oversee personal and financial affairs of that person. A preneed guardian designation allows a competent adult to appoint a guardian of their choosing prior to becoming incapacitated. Similar to a will, a written declaration appointing a preneed guardian must be signed in the presence of two attesting witnesses. A preneed guardian designation creates a presumption that the person designated therein shall serve as guardian unless such person is found to be unqualified by a court to do so. People typically do not anticipate becoming incapacitated, and therefore, this important designation is not often used, leading to potential future litigation over who should serve as guardian.
