Florida guardianship Law : Conducting an Examination of the AIP
In Florida guardianship, if somebody is deemed to be incompetent, we refer to that person as the AIP, the alleged incapacitated person. If they are actually determined to be incapacitated by a judge from the probate division, that person becomes known as the Ward.
Was that person examined properly by the examining committee?
