Why can't you file for guardianship in Florida and have the Illinois guardian petition the Illinois court to dissolve the Illinois Guardianship. I think that is the way to go, assuming you j ust want to have a Florida Guardian now that your father is living in Florida.
Unfortunatelyit is not as simple as you would like. But Florida has "jursidiction" over your father just at Florida has jurisdiction over any resident of Florida and he should be netitled to all the rights and benefits of any other citizen of Florida. He justhappens to have a "guardian" who lives in Illinois. That "gurardian" has the right to make your father's decision for him and to control his estate (assets) -- I'm assuming that the Illinois guradian is the guardian of the "person" and the "estate."
