Guardianships are governed by Chapter 744 of the Florida Statutes. Also known as the “Florida Guardianship Law”.

A Guardianship is a legal proceeding in the circuit courts of Florida in which a Guardian is appointed to exercise the legal rights of an incapacitated person. This is done in front of a Circuit Court Judge.

The incapacitated person is called the “Ward”. The Guardian may only exercise those rights that have been removed from the Ward and granted to the Guardian.
