Voluntary Guardianships

Voluntary Guardianships in St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Tampa, Sarasota, Pinellas County and surrounding West Florida areas.

Without an adjudication of incapacity, Florida courts will appoint a limited guardian of the property for a person who, though mentally competent, is incapable of the care, custody and management of his or her estate by reason of age or physical infirmity, and who has voluntarily petitioned for the appointment of a guardian. The petition needs to be accompanied by a certificate of a licensed physician specifying that he or she has examined the petition and that the petitioner is competent to understand the nature of the guardianship and their election to delegate authority to the guardian.
