What is required of a guardian?

Every guardian shall be represented by an attorney admitted to practice in Florida. A guardian advocate is not required to be represented by an attorney unless otherwise required by law or the court.  Guardians are usually required to furnish a bond and may be required to complete a court-approved training program. The Clerk of Court reviews all annual reports of guardians of the person and property, and presents them to the court for approval. The court may remove a guardian who does not properly carry out his or her responsibilities.
