It is known as “guardianship” when someone is granted the legal ability to make decisions on their behalf. The person chosen by the court to make decisions on behalf of someone else is known as a “guardian.” Likewise, whoever is granted guardianship is considered the “protected person” (whether an adult or a child).
Florida guardianship legislation
As per the Florida Law, guardianship is a legal function that allows an individual to manage the personal activities or assets of another person who is unable to do so adequately on their own. In cases where a proper parent is not available, guardianship is frequently utilized to delegate responsibility for a child’s care to someone other than their parents. When a court judges that a person has a handicap that prevents them from exercising judgment, or if the person becomes extremely irresponsible or destructive to their welfare, they may be placed under guardianship (also known as conservatorship for adults).
There are a variety of reasons why someone might require the assistance and supervision of a guardian, including an underage minor who has lost both parents and who may require assistance in making financial and life decisions such as schooling and medical care. Physical or mental incapacitation: If an individual is in a coma as a result of an injury or disease, he or she will require the assistance of a proxy to make choices. If an individual loses the capacity to think clearly and make judgments due to dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, a guardian must be appointed to make decisions in his or her place.
