Customer Question
I am a legal...

I am a legal guardian for my adult daught

Lawyer's Assistant: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?

My legal guardianship is in Michigan, and we now live in Florida. Michigan is holding the legal guardianship until i have one in Florida. My daughter does want me as her legal guardian. Do I need an attorney? I have very little money and my daughter is indigent.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Not that i can think of

I was my adult mentally ill daughter’s legal guardian in Florida before she moved to Michigan. She is now living at a home for mentally ill adults in Delray Beach, Fl.
In Palm Beach County. I live in the adjoining county, Broward County.

I am sorry to hear you are having problems with guardianship issues and to make it more confusing, FL is not part of the federal guardianship act (UAGPPJA) which simplifies transfers of guardianships between states.

As such the following must be done when one moves a ward to FL:

1. petition the original state for permission to move

2. restart the guardianship process in FL whereby the court will reassess the need for a guardian and determine the proper appointment.

please see:

This site may be able to recommend an agency that will assist with legal documentation:

Unfortunately per Florida Probate Rule 5.030 an attorney must be involved in the case.
