Guardianship and Incapacity Attorneys in Lakeland, FL

Lakeland Guardianship and Incapacity Attorneys specialize in assisting families with issues related to diminished mental and physical capacity. If your loved one can no longer make appropriate decisions regarding their finances or personal care, it may be necessary for a court to appoint a guardian for them. The guardian of the property is responsible for management and use of the assets of the incapacitated person. The guardian of the person is responsible for their personal care and well-being. Guardians for the person and for the property may be the same person or different people.

Before seeking guardianship, less restrictive alternatives should be carefully considered. We can explain the legal procedures of Florida’s guardianship laws and provide you with potential alternatives to guardianship.

Contact our Elder Law Attorneys for an appointment to answer your questions and allow them to provide you with the peace of mind you deserve.
