How Long Does a Guardianship Last?
How long does a Florida guardianship last? Well, we start a Florida guardianship when someone needs assistance. They may need a little bit of assistance with their daily living activities or with their finances, and so you may have a guardianship of the person or the property. Now, if people get better and they regain capacity, or they’re capable of managing themselves and their finances on their own, you probably don’t need a guardianship. Sadly, that’s not often the case. People get worse as they age, particularly when they’re stricken by things as dementia, which if not treated, actually gets progressively worse. In that instance, a guardianship could last until the person passes away.
