It depends upon whether or not the court-appointed Guardian has violated any of the 21 reasons to remove a Guardian under section 744.474, Florida Statutes (2015). Various cases have dealt with removal of a Guardian in which the court-appointed Guardian has allegedly failed to properly care for a loved one’s property or person, mishandled the ward’s funds or failed to properly or timely file the required documents with the court.
If you have any questions regarding protecting a vulnerable elderly loved one or concerned about your loved one being harmed or susceptible to undue influence, you may contact Probate and Guardian Litigation Attorney Thomas Upchurch at (386) 320-6169.
One example is when an individual at a meeting I attended asked me a few questions about what to do about removing the court-appointed Guardian of her father Michael.
