Guardian Ad Litem
Regina Drennan, Esq. has extensive experience as a Guardian ad Litem in Florida civil claims to oversee settlements involving minors. As a Guardian ad Litem, her goal is to review the Florida personal injury or wrongful death settlement, and advise the court if it is in the child's best interest.
Florida law generally requires that a Guardian ad Litem be appointed whenever the gross settlement exceeds $50,000.00, though the court may require it for FL personal injury and wrongful death settlements exceeding $15,000.00.
A Florida voluntary guardianship allows others to assist in various matters, even if the person has capacity.
Florida allows a voluntary guardianship without adjudication of incapacity, of the property of a resident or nonresident person who, though mentally competent, is incapable of the care, custody, and management of his or her estate by reason of age or physical infirmity and who has voluntarily petitioned for the appointment.
If a person lacks capacity to make their own decisions, whether financial, medical or otherwise personal, an involuntary guardianship may be necessary to protect their rights. Our office can help walk you through the process to set it up, and help ensure that the person is taken care of.
A Florida involuntary guardianship can be complex, but our office can try to make it as easy a process as possible for you and your family.
