Guardianships in Jacksonville, Duval, Clay, Nassau and
St. John’s County:
Guardians are legally competent adults who are appointed to make decisions on behalf of another person, usually called a minor or a ward, if and when that person is unable to make decisions for themselves. Guardians can be appointed if someone becomes incompetent or if they are minors. Guardian advocates are also appointed for developmentally disabled adults. The guardian will manage the ward’s money and property, and/or the ward’s health care, or all aspects of the ward’s specific situation. The appointment of a guardian can be a routine process, but it also could potentially be contentious if family members disagree. The attorneys of Gleason Hope Law have experience working with guardianships and can facilitate this process. Please call us at (904) 515-0909 for more information about guardians.
