Voluntary Guardianship in Florida

 In Guardianship

A voluntary guardianship may be established for a competent adult if they feel that they are incapable of managing their own estate due to age or physical limitation and voluntarily petition for this appointment. To appoint a voluntary guardian, the individual seeking this form of guardianship must file a petition with the court in order for a voluntary guardian to be designated. A voluntary guardianship remains valid and in effect until the death or incapacity of the petitioner unless it is subsequently revoked by the ward. Individuals may choose to appoint a guardian voluntarily if they no longer want to shoulder the responsibility of managing their own affairs or fear that an illness or disability will prevent them from doing so effectively.
