Is a Guardian Accountable for Their Actions?

| Aug 27, 2015 | Announcements, General, Law Articles, Local News |

The Florida Bar states: “Yes. A guardian must be represented by an attorney who will serve as “attorney of record.” Guardians are usually required to furnish a bond (financial institutions and public guardians are not required to file a bond) and may be required to complete a court-approved training program.

The clerk of the court reviews all annual reports of guardians of the person and property and presents them to the court for approval. A guardian who does not properly carry out his or her responsibilities may be removed by the court.” If you have any guardianship, estate planning or probate questions please feel free to call us at (904)366-2703 or email us at [email protected]
