A guardianship is a legal proceeding in the Florida courts in which a guardian is appointed to exercise the legal rights of an incapacitated person. A guardian in Florida is an individual or institution (such as a nonprofit corporation or bank trust department) appointed by the court to care for an incapacitated person — called a “ward” — or for the ward’s assets.

Although the powers and duties of guardians are like the powers and duties of parents concerning minor children, a court cannot appoint a guardian for an adult unless that person is subject to a disability that prevents them from effectively caring for himself or herself in Florida.
